Key Market Trends

Food Sector is Expected to Hold Significant Market Share

  • The growing consumer market is expected to contribute strongly to the growth of the food industry in the country. The local manufacturers have expanded their footprint in foreign nations, with the acquisition of a few international brands.
  • The country is one of the major exporters of exotic fruits found in the Amazon. A few companies have also come up with new techniques to export frozen fruits in various innovative packaging, thereby driving the market for packaging across the country’s food sector.
  • Folding cardboard cartons are used to cater to a wide range of food production across the markets, such as bakery, dairy, confectionery, fruits and vegetables, meat, poultry, and fish, among others, which help in protecting the product to facilitate transportation and marketing of thousands of consumer products. 
  • Consumers in the country are also very specific about the health aspects associated with packaged food products. Some of the major products in the food category include meat and vegetables, cereal and flour, sugar and chocolate, and dairy and fats.

With the rising demand for packaging applications, along with technological advancements across the country's economy, many companies are increasing their market presence by expanding their business footprint across the various end-user sectors.
