Being eco-friendly and safe for food packaging, parchment paper has become a popular choice among consumers. The growing trend of home cooking and baking, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, has further boosted the demand for parchment paper.

Additionally, leading companies in the market focus on developing and offering eco-friendly parchment paper to meet the changing consumer demands. For instance, If You Care, a leading brand offers unbleached, chlorine-free parchment paper that is non-toxic and safe for food packaging. Reynolds Consumer Products, a global leader in consumer products, offers unbleached parchment paper that is compostable and made from responsibly sourced wood fibers. The brand promotes its parchment paper as a sustainable and safe option for baking and cooking purposes.

The COVID-19 pandemic has harmed the parchment paper market, reducing demand from the food service industry and increasing raw material and transportation costs. However, the pandemic has also shifted towards sustainable and eco-friendly packaging solutions, benefiting the market. Companies like Georgia-Pacific and Nordic Paper have adapted to the challenges posed by the pandemic by ramping up production, implementing safety measures, and continuing sustainability efforts. Despite these challenges, the parchment paper market is expected to continue its growth trajectory in the coming years, driven by increasing consumer demand for sustainable and eco-friendly packaging solutions.
