It offers features such as thermal & electrical insulation, shock dampening, fireproofing, and atmospheric protection to packed products.

Foam plastics is the largest material segment of the protective packaging market

The protective packaging market is segmented on the basis of material into foam plastics, paper & paperboard, plastics, and others. The foam plastics material segment accounted for the largest market share. The large market share is attributed to its lightweight, good thermal insulation, and shock-absorbing properties, which are suitable for protective packaging.

Flexible protective packaging is the largest type segment of the protective packaging market

The global protective packaging market is segmented on the basis of type into flexible protective packaging, rigid protective packaging, and foam protective packaging. The flexible protective packaging segment is expected to account for largest market share. This is attributed to the increasing demand for recyclable and cost-effective materials.

Cushioning is the largest function segment of the protective packaging market

The global protective packaging market is segmented on the basis of function into cushioning, void fill, wrapping, insulation, and blocking & bracing. Cushioning is projected to account for largest market share, as it protects fragile and lightweight items from damage during transportation and warehousing. Also, it restrains movement of the packed product and prevents damage from shock and vibration during transportation.

Industrial goods is the largest application segment of the protective packaging market

The global protective packaging market is segmented on the basis of application into industrial goods, food & beverage, healthcare, consumer electronics & appliances, automotive, household appliances, and others. Industrial goods accounted for largest market share. This is attributed to the rapid growth of industrial sector and transportation of intermediate goods for aerospace, electrical, and machinery goods for manufacturing.

APAC is the largest market for protective packaging market

The APAC region is the largest and fastest-growing protective packaging market. China is the largest and fastest-growing market in the region and is projected to dominate the regional market in the next five years. Key factors such as industrialization, rising internet penetration, growing manufacturing activities, increasing disposable income, rising consumption level, and the growing e-retail sales will drive the market during the forecast period.
