Honeycomb Packaging Market overview:
Honeycomb Packaging Market size is anticipated to reach USD 16.6 Billion by the year 2027 and register a CAGR of 5.64% over the forecast period of 2027.
Honeycomb packaging is made by conglutination of paper bands into series of hexagons that are similar to honeycomb structure, and are then sandwiched between two sheets. The properties of honeycomb packaging are low material consumption, low weight, difficult to deform, resistant to pressure, shock and bending, good cushioning performance, and recyclable. Increasing demand for lightweight, environment friendly, and low cost packaging by food and beverages, automotive, and other industries, is driving the growth of honeycomb packaging market.
Honeycomb structures are naturally occurring or man-made and have the geometry of a honeycomb. These are used between two thin sheets to make materials for honeycomb packaging. Honeycomb structures aid the material used in packaging in reducing density and increasing shear and compression properties. This enables in minimizing the material usage and maximizes strength. Honeycomb packaging is 100% ecofriendly, lightweight, shock absorbent, and does not change in dimensions with temperature variations. It provides advantages such as easy handling and transportation, easy disposal, and low cost.
Increasing demand for sustainable packaging by various industries such as automotive, furniture, consumer goods, and others, is the major growth driver for honeycomb packaging. Furthermore, the growing demand for e-Commerce sector owing to increasing utilization of smart phones, is propelling the growth of packaging industry, which in turn has augmented the growth of honeycomb packaging. However, increasing demand for flexible packaging is the major challenge to honeycomb packaging market. Stringent government regulations by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other regulatory bodies on the recyclability and environment hazards of the material used in flexible packaging such as plastic and aluminum, is expected to boost growth of the honeycomb packaging market as honeycomb packaging is made from environment friendly material.
