  • Flexible packaging
  • Rigid metal packaging
  • Rigid plastic
  • Paperboard
  • Other

Global pet care packaging market by flexible packaging

The global pet care packaging market by flexible packaging is expected
to reach USD 5.4 billion by 2020. The demand for bags and pouches in the
global pet care packaging market is increasing at a rapid rate compared
to the other packaging materials. Bags are increasingly being preferred
for their light weight, low cost, and availability in various designs
and materials.

“Vendors are introducing biodegradable and sustainable forms of flexible
packaging to meet the needs of food manufacturers for eco-friendly
packaging,” says Sharan Raj, a lead analyst at Technavio for packaging
research. Packaging companies have introduced the flat-bottom pouch,
which allows the pouch to stand up and increases the shelf appeal of the
product. Also, there is an increase in the adoption of stand-up
re-closable pouches, flat-bottom side-gusseted box pouches, and
pinch-bottom box pouches in the market.

Global pet care packaging market by rigid metal packaging

The global pet care packaging market by rigid metal packaging is
expected to reach USD 1.8 billion by 2020, growing at a rate of 3%.
Metal packaging is temperature resistant and provides a long shelf life
for products. However, increased demand for rigid and flexible plastic
packaging products such as pouches and bags poses a major challenge for
this segment. This is because companies prefer low-cost plastic
packaging, since most of the functions and features are similar to those
of metal packaging. However, the demand for metal cans in the pet food
packaging market in the US is expected to increase at a moderate pace
during the forecast period.

Global pet care packaging market by rigid plastic

The global pet care packaging market by rigid plastic is expected to
reach USD 1.3 billion by 2020. Rigid plastic refers to plastic material
that can hold its original shape and does not change form with changes
in temperature. The demand for rigid plastic is less compared to other
packaging materials such as bags and pouches. The demand for lightweight
and comparatively lower cost flexible packaging is limiting the demand
for plastic bottles to only limited end-users.

The increasing demand from customers for sustainable,
environment-friendly packaging is increasing the pressure on rigid
plastic packaging manufacturers to introduce recyclable options for

Global pet care packaging market by paperboard

The global pet care packaging market by paperboard is expected to reach
USD 0.65 billion by 2020. The global pet care packaging market by
paperboard is expected to experience sluggish growth during the forecast
period compared to the other packaging solutions. The use of folding
cartons in packaging solutions or products is becoming obsolete with the
emergence of various other packaging materials that are easier to carry,
distribute, store, and dispose.

Global pet care packaging market by other packaging

The others segment accounted for 9.78% of the pet care packaging market
in 2015. Its market share is expected to decline slightly during the
forecast period, accounting for 9.06% of the market by 2020.

The other packaging products include materials such as tubes, cups, and
crates. This segment also includes customized packaging solutions. The
need for convenience and lightweight features will continue to generate
demand for tubs and cups in pet food packaging. “Moreover, tubs and cups
will continue to replace metal containers in the wet food segment, and
also are expected to grow because of the peel-able lid feature, which is
easier to open,” says Sharan.
