  • New packaging technologies, such as active packaging, intelligent packaging, and engineering science, have evolved over the years, which enables the flexible packaging of food products. Companies are adopting eco-friendly packaging by using biodegradable packaging material which can be recycled, renewed, and reused.
  • Due to increased dry food procurement fueled by hygiene concerns, the emergence of COVID-19 sparked a demand for canned food across the Asia Pacific area. However, due to a total lockdown and stoppage of manufacturing activities, the industry was unable to fully benefit from the sudden demand surge, which hampered the market's growth in 2020. Furthermore, because health worries are anticipated to persist even after the disease outbreak has subsided, the market is expected to increase steadily in the following years.
