DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 2, 2021--

The “Molded Pulp Packaging Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Source (Wood, Non-Wood), Molded Type (Thermoformed, Transfer), Product (Clamshells, Trays), Application, and Segment Forecasts, 2021-2028” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The global molded pulp packaging market size is expected to reach USD 6.1 billion by 2028., expanding at a CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast period. Growing demand for eco-friendly sustainable packaging from the end-user segments owing to growing awareness regarding the adverse effects of plastic pollution is expected to be the key driver for the market.


The Covid-19 pandemic has benefitted the molded pulp packaging owing to increased demand for eggs from the retail segment. In addition, increasing demand for home deliveries of fresh food, vegetables, and other grocery items owing to restrictions on the movement of the public also supported the market growth. However, shortages of raw material owing to supply chain disruption have increased the prices of the packaging products.

Molded pulp packaging usage was limited to the transportation and distribution of eggs but owing to increased demand for recyclable, eco-friendly packaging, the penetration of these products in electronics, healthcare, and other industrial applications is also on the rise, which is expected to drive the market over the forecast period.

Molded pulp products are made of pulp obtained from virgin wood, discarded corrugated & folding boxes, recovered or wastepaper, and other sources. The aesthetic appeal and geometry of molded pulp products are not consistent when compared with plastic products. whereas plastic molded products offer excellent finishing & product appeal and shape consistency. Rapid development in bioplastic and biodegradable plastics is expected to create challenges for the market players.
