Global flexible plastic packaging market is expected to grow at a steady rate during the forecast period. The global flexible plastic packaging market is driven by the increasing demand from various end user industries such as food & beverage, healthcare, cosmetic & personal care, among others. Additionally, associated benefits such as affordability, convenience, durability, light-weight, among others associated with flexible plastic packaging are further expected to propel the market growth through 2025. Furthermore, increased adoption of sustainable packaging solutions along with new product launches by the major players operating in the market is expected to create lucrative opportunities for growth over the next few years. However, stringent regulations pertaining to use of plastics in certain countries can hamper the market growth during the forecast period. Also, the sudden outbreak of pandemic COVID-19 has led to the shut down of the manufacturing, production and processing of plastics thereby negatively impacting the market growth.

The global flexible plastic packaging market is segmented based on type, base resin, printing technology, end user industry, company and region. Based on type, the market can be fragmented into stand-up pouches, flat pouches, rollstocks, gusseted bags, wicketed bags, wraps and others. The stand-up pouches segment is expected to dominate the market since they are portable, easy to use, offer high clarity and act as excellent barrier to outside environment.  Based on end user industry, the market can be categorized into food & beverage, dairy products, healthcare, personal care, pharmaceuticals and others. The food & beverage segment is expected to dominate the market since flexible packaging solutions help increase the shelf life of food products and protect the food items from any type of contamination risk.

Regionally, the flexible plastic packaging market has been segmented into various regions including Asia-Pacific, North America, South America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, North America is expected to dominate the market share in the overall flexible plastic packaging market owing to the well established flexible plastic packaging market in the region. While, Asia Pacific is expected to register significant growth in the market owing to the increasing demand from various end user industries in the region.
