At TGW International, we’re a top supplier of machine knives for the meat and seafood packaging and processing industries, so we’re always staying up-to-date on the latest trends. Let’s discuss a few things you should know about the industry in 2021 and how they may impact the world of meat and seafood packaging in the future.
Fish & Seafood Production Is Forecasted To Grow By 18% Over The Next Decade
The seafood packaging market is poised to grow significantly over the next 10 years, with reports estimating an overall growth of 18% for the seafood market.
Driving today’s trend in seafood packaging is demand for more effective seafood packaging that will protect the integrity of the product over long distances, and ensure the quality of the meat is preserved. For example, Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) and vacuum packaging are becoming more popular and in-demand by consumers who are interested in frozen fish and seafood products.
This is particularly important as the Asia Pacific region continues to grow as a major producer of fish. Seafood packing and processing companies need to anticipate this demand and develop innovative solutions to preserve the quality of the food as it travels to other markets like the US and Europe. Overall, the seafood packaging market is expected to grow to at least US $6.5 billion by the end of 2027.
The Overall Meat & Frozen Food Market Is Growing, Too
Demand for high-quality meat and frozen foods is not limited only to fish and seafood. The overall global meat, poultry, and seafood market is expected to grow at a rate of 3.8% annually, and the market for frozen meat and seafood is expected to grow at an even higher rate of 5.3%.
More customers than ever are demanding high-quality packaging, flash-frozen meats, and products that have a long shelf life while maintaining product integrity. And if you operate a fish or meat processing and packaging facility, you must keep this in mind while investing in the future of your business.
