Global Airless Packaging Market

he global airless packaging market is estimated to expand at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period, from 2020 to 2026. The growth of the market is attributed to the continuously expanding cosmetic industry.

Airless packaging is a packaging method that eliminates air from the pre-sealing pack. This process involves putting objects in a plastic pack, taking away air from the inside and securing it. The aim of airless packaging is to eliminate air from the container in order to improve the shelf life of food items. It also decreases atmospheric oxygen, minimizes the development of aerobic microbes or fungal spores and prevents evaporation of volatile substances. Another use of airless packaging is to house dry food over a prolonged period of time, such as cured meat, cereals, nuts, cheese, coffee, potato chips, and smoked fish. This type of packaging may also be used to store fresh produce, such as meats and vegetables, since it can inhibit the growth of bacteria. It also enables companies to decrease the use of preservatives, that in turn keep goods more organic. It is therefore extremely favorable for natural ingredients. Get Free Sample Before Purchasing
