Packaged foods primarily include Ready-To-Eat (RTE) meals, RTE convenience foods, frozen meals, cake mixes, snacks, and desserts, among others. The growing demand for these products is expected to force manufacturers to enhance production capacities, which, in turn, will fuel the demand for food containers over the forecast period.

Raw material shortage due to supply chain disruption resulted in the reduced production of food containers. Several major players witnessed a decline in their annual revenue in 2020. For instance, the annual turnover of Amcor plc reduced by approximately 6% in 2020 compared to 2019.
