Report Summary

The global insulated packaging market was valued at USD 13.30 billion in 2017 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period. Insulated packaging is used in the logistics of thermally sensitive products. It helps to maintain the inside temperature of the packaging, while reducing the outer heat leaking in. This enables the product to reach the desired destination, nationally or internationally, in the desired state and quality. These products usually are pharmaceuticals, seafood, meat, wine, flowers, and chocolates among others.

The insulated packaging constricts heat dissipation via convection, conduction and radiation. Lower heat transfer rates help in controlling any deterioration caused by transit. Polystyrene Foam, also known as Styrofoam, was earlier used as an effective packaging material for thermal insulation. However, these materials were increasingly becoming unpopular due to their environmentally hazardous properties. The newer materials are usually made of natural fiber and hence are cost effective and environmentally sustainable. As compared to foam, these materials are recyclable, biodegradable and compostable.
