Egg Packaging Market Is Pegged To Reach US$ 10.3 Bn By The Year 2029 At A CAGR Of 5.8%

Press Release from Future Market Insights

Egg packaging has become inevitable with worldwide increase in demand, thanks to growing awareness about the fact that eggs are a wholesome source of nutrition. Also, another piece of reality is that eggs are fragile and so subject to easy damage.

A well-known method to store and transport eggs is in a carton that is dimple-shaped. The other alternatives are inclusive of containers, trays, polystyrene, tissue, and various other packaging materials. The global  egg packaging market  is pegged to reach US$ 10.3 Bn by the year 2029 at a CAGR of 5.8% between 2022 and 2029.

Moulded fibre and plastics, including polystyrene and polyethylene terephthalate (PET), are among the most commonly used raw materials for egg packaging. The FMI study predicts that the global market for egg packaging made of plastic will expand at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period.

Moulded fibre provides integrated structure with suitable rigidity and stiffness which makes it suitable for shock proof performance. Also, moulded fibre trays have good air permeability and hygroscopic ability which plays an important role in egg packaging and storage. However, the price of moulded fibre is comparatively on the higher end as compared to plastics. In addition, plastic trays are reusable and washable.

This is one of the main factors why plastic is preferred over moulded fibre in the egg packaging market. Trays made up of polystyrene offer superior cushioning and protection against moisture and odor. Also, plastic is fungus- and mould-resistant, which marks another benefit over moulded fibre in terms of maintenance.

End-users Prefer Trays over Cartons as Convenience Becomes Paramount

Egg packaging solutions available in the market are either egg trays or cartons. FMI predicts that egg packaging solutions in the form of trays will have a lion’s share in the egg packaging market during 2019-2029. This is mainly attributed to the ergonomics of trays. Trays also provide a convenient method for counting eggs.

Moreover, special care needs to be taken for cartons made up of moulded fibre as they cannot be placed at the bottom as a stack. Higher level of convenience of egg packaging in the form of trays is thus expected to influence the dynamics of the egg packaging market in the upcoming years.
