Walk through the aisles of your favorite grocery store and you’re likely to spot ever-more varieties of flexible pouches containing everything from baby foods to household cleaners to automotive products.

According to Global Market Insights’ new report, Spout & Non-Spout Liquid Pouch Packaging Market, this market will rise at an impressive 7.5% CAGR and surpass $10 billion by 2024.

Behind the growth in the non-spouted category are the following consumer convenience factors:

• The necessity for lightweight and easy-to-carry products, particularly among travelers and tourists

• Ease of consumption

• Rapid urbanization and busier lifestyles enhancing the processed food demand

• Effective storage of high-viscous as well as low-viscous fluids including juices, lubricants and oils, shampoo, and detergents

• Zero leakage and puncture-resistance

• Inclination towards eco-friendly materials along with favorable government regulations on sustainable packaging innovations

• Shifting trend towards raw material cost reduction

The report cites raw material cost variations due to fluctuating petrochemical prices as a growth deterrent.

Meanwhile, GMI predicts the spouted liquid pouch packaging market will witness CAGR above 6.5% through 2024. No spillage along with high-protection layering are among major drivers in food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and industrial applications for these pouches.

Among the more notable overall report findings were the following:

• Non-spout liquid pouch packaging market dominates the industry share

• Extensive durability through flavor retention, nutritional value, and freshness maintenance are substantial positive pouch properties

• The 200-mL size dominates spout liquid pouch packaging market share.
