North America Baby Food Packaging Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the North America Baby Food Packaging Market according to our research experts:

Plastic is Expected to Hold the Largest Market Share

  • Plastics are a more efficient material for food packaging than other alternatives because plastics are energy efficient to manufacture, and they are also lighter than the alternative materials. For instance, just two pounds of plastic can deliver 10 gallons of a beverage, whereas three pounds of aluminum, eight pounds of steel, or over 40 pounds of glass are needed to deliver the same amount of beverage.
  • In the powder milk formula segment, the busy life of working parents has led to the launch of single-serve plastic sachets by various brands. Thus, this increases the importance of ready nutrition products and further boosts the market growth.
  • HDPE is the most widely used type of plastic packaging material. It is used to make many types of bottles and containers. Unpigmented bottles are translucent and sturdy, have good barrier properties, and are well suited for packaging products with a shorter shelf life, such as milk.
  • With the expanding infant nutrition market, it is evident that nutritional product demand, such as milk, is increasing, and it is directly driving the baby food packaging market.

Prepared Baby Food to Witness a Significant Growth

  • The prepared baby food segment is expected to witness the highest growth, owing to the increase in demand for ready-to-have food and busy lifestyles in the United States and Canada.
  • Moreover, the increasing number of working women in the North American region and increasing disposable income of the American population are anticipated to increase the demand for prepared baby food during the forecast period.
  • Advancements in TRS with their work-oriented, hectic lifestyle do find enough time to cook for themselves or their children. Thus, they prefer prepared baby food which is boosting the growth of the market.
