The U.S. is one of the largest markets for packaging products around the globe with a total market exceeding USD 177 billion as of 2019, according to the Flexible Packaging Association. It is one of the largest producers and exporters for the application industries including dairy products, eggs, meat, and fruits and vegetables which has created a huge demand for fresh food packaging products in the country.

According to the data published by Produce Marketing Association in October 2020, fresh produce sales increased by USD 4.5 billion in the U.S. between January and August 2020 as compared to the same period in 2019. According to a survey conducted in July 2020, a majority of contemporary consumers preferred the purchase of fresh food and are willing to pay a premium price for the same.

Plastic resins such as polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polystyrene (PS), and others like paper pulp, metals, and glass are mainly used to package produce products. These plastic resins are derived from crude oil. In addition, materials like steel, aluminum, and glass are energy-intensive materials. Therefore, continuous fluctuation in crude oil prices leads to uncertainty around the availability of raw materials at lower or economical prices creating challenges for fresh food packaging.

Furthermore, to curb the humongous amount of plastic waste generated annually, many regulatory bodies and governments around the world have imposed restrictions on the generation of primarily plastic waste over the years. The regulatory bodies are emphasizing the circular economy under which higher importance would be given to the reusability of packaging products and strengthening of recycling activities which is expected to create challenges for the plastic material and opportunities for paper and paper board, bagasse, and polylactic acid.
