Leading companies are investing in Innovative after-pressing capabilities to manufacture retail-friendly packaging solutions.

Renewal molded fiber packaging products customized to the consumer’s requirement are widely being marketed, with varying strength, durability, appeal, and price parameters.

Further, investments in widening the type of materials used for packagings such as natural fibers including sugarcane bagasse, bamboo, wheat straw, and others are widely observed.

Further, technological advancements in terms of reduced steps in manufacturing, energy efficiency, and overall cost and time reduction are also widely observed.

Widening the applications of molded fiber packaging solutions across end-user verticals, in particular, in the healthcare and food packaging industries.

 

Molded Fiber Packaging Market Share Analysis- The transfer molded segment stood as the largest revenue generator

The report analyzes four distinct types of molded fiber packaging based on the thickness range and the manufacturing process. To differentiate between types, we consider the standard definition as provided by the International Molded Fiber Association (IMFA)

Transfer Molded, Thick Walled, Thin-walled (Thermoformed), and Processed types of molded fiber packaging are analyzed in the report. The chart below provides the market share analysis of the global molded fiber packaging types, 2022-

Molded Fiber Packaging Market Share- Food packaging, Service, Electronics, Pharmaceuticals, Industrial

Below are the differences between the four types-

  • Thick-Walled Type: It is manufactured using only a single mold. The wall thickness ranges between 3/16 inches and 3/8 inches.
  • Transfer Molded Type: It is manufactured using one forming and one transfer mold. The wall thickness ranges between 1/8 inches and 3/16 inches.
  • Thin-Walled Type: It is manufactured using several heated molds. The wall thickness ranges between 3/32 inches and 5/32 inches.
  • Processed Type: It is manufactured with a secondary or special treatment process.
