Growth Drivers

The growing investments in product innovations

The changing needs in the global marketplace are facilitating key market players to modify their production processes and invest in the efficient production of machine-glazed paper. For instance, in December 2023, Mondi announced the upgrade of production mills for superior and accessible saturating kraft paper. These types of initiatives are expected to fuel the growth of machine-glazed paper in the coming years.

Increase in the need for sustainable packaging equipment

The rising global initiatives to cut down greenhouse gas emissions are optimally facilitating tremendous growth opportunities for the machine-glazed paper market. According to the available data, plastics account for approximately 3.3% of global emissions. This trend is necessitating companies to shift their plastic packaging material to biodegradable and recyclable packaging, where machine-glazed paper comes in as a prominent alternative.

Restraining Factors

Instability in raw material prices

The presence of significant fluctuations in the raw materials used in the production of machine-glazed paper is making it difficult for the producers, leading to price instability. The presence of compatible, cost-effective alternatives for the machine-glazed paper is likely to hamper the growth of the market in the years to come.

For instance, in India the average import cost of wood pulp stood at USD 885/ton, showing a rise of around 17%, over previous year.

By Grade Analysis

Bleached segment is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period

The bleached segment is projected to grow at a CAGR during the projected period, driven by its potential use in the pharmaceutical industry. The bleached machine-glazed paper is widely employed in the healthcare segment as it usually requires sustainable packaging rather than any kind of promotional or branding. The ongoing government restrictions on the use of plastic bags are positively driving the use of bleached paper in the marketplace, which is expected to register higher growth in the foreseeable future.

Unbleached segment garnered the largest share in 2023, due to its ability to offer printing facilities, which is highly important for food-producing companies as it works as a branding initiative. Furthermore, it is gaining adoption in the manufacturing industry for the packaging of dry foods, including sugar, cereals, and others.

By Application Analysis

Bags and pouches segment accounted for the largest market share in 2023

The bags and pouches segment accounted for the largest market share in 2023 and is likely to retain its market position throughout the forecast period. This is highly attributable to the rising use of eco-friendly bags and pouches in the food packaging domain. As the government steps forward to lower the use of plastic in the marketplace, several players are showing interest in adopting sustainable bags and pouches without compromising their services or consumer satisfaction. These ongoing strategic decisions are playing a vital role in promoting the use of machine-glazed paper in the global market.

Furthermore, the rising utilization of these papers in the packing of clothes as a wrapper is likely to drive its demand in the next few years. Consumers are purchasing machine-glazed paper sacks for carrying vegetables, driven by their convenience due to their lower weight and rigidity.

By End User Analysis

Food & Beverages segment held the significant market revenue share in 2023

The food and beverage segment held a significant market share in revenue in 2023, which is highly accelerated due to the growing concerns about chemical-free packaging in the food and beverage industry among consumers. The rapid shift from plastic to sustainable packing solutions is the main contributing factor for registering a larger revenue share, which is projected to continue its growth trajectory over the forecast period.
