According to a recent business intelligence report by Transparency Market Research (TMR), the demand in the global edible packaging market will increment at a notable CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period of 2016 to 2024. In terms of revenue, the analyst of the TMR report has estimated the opportunities in the edible packaging market, across the world, to translate into US$1.30 billion by the end of 2024, swelling up substantially from its evaluated worth US$0.77 billion as of 2016.
The TMR report notifies of a fairly opportune competitive landscape in the edible packaging market, with only a handful of players venturing into this relatively niche segment of the packaging industry as a whole. Currently, the shares are significantly consolidated within a small group of players such as JRF Technology LLC, Tate and Lyle Plc., MonoSol, and WikiCell Designs Inc. These players are among the pioneers in the field and are expected to retain their prominence with consistent emphasis on research and development.
However, some of the other major players from similar fields with financial might are expected to make a foray into this lucrative market for edible packaging and eat into the global shares. The threat from local and domestic vendors is expected to be moderate to negligible over the course of the aforementioned forecast period.
