Global Molded Fiber Packaging Market Report 2018-2023 And 2024-2035: Changing Consumer Preferences, Regulatory Pressures And Sustainability Goals On The Demand For Eco-Friendly Packaging Solutions

(MENAFN- GlobeNewsWire - Nasdaq) Dublin, April 04, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Market for Molded Fiber Packaging 2024-2035" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets's offering.

As a green and sustainable packaging materials, molded fiber, also known as molded pulp, has increased in commercial use as a replacement for single-use plastics. Molded fiber packaging (MFP), traditionally used for packaging dunnage, egg boxes, and cartons, is finding increasing applications in primary and secondary packaging as a sustainable alternative to plastics. MFP is used for handling and packaging a wide range of products, including food containers, household items, industrial supplies, electronics, and single-use medical service items. It offers protection during shipment, customer convenience, and various economic and environmental benefits.

Molded pulp products are a sustainable substitute for rigid single-use plastics, with applications spanning food containers and tableware, electronic product packaging, compostable containers for agricultural seedlings, medical and health products, building materials, and furniture. The development of innovative barrier solutions and the growing demand for fiber-based packaging have led to the adoption of MFP in other markets, such as FMCG.

The raw materials for MFPs are typically derived from biodegradable lignocellulosic fibers, which include recycled paper, newsprint, cardboard, and other natural planted fibers. MFP is recyclable, compostable, and eventually biodegradable, making it a viable alternative to oil-based packaging products like expanded polystyrene (EPS) or vacuum-formed polyethylene terephthalate (PET). The market for natural fiber packaging products has experienced consistent growth for over a decade, leading to a struggle among molded fiber producers to keep up with the increasing demand. As a result, production capacity expansions have become necessary to meet the growing market needs.
