DUBLIN, July 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The report “Global Edible Films and Coatings Market Size, Market Share, and Industry Trend Analysis by Application, by Material, by Regional Outlook and Forecast, 2022-2028″ has been added to the report. from ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.
The global edible films and coatings market size is expected to reach $4.2 billion by 2028, with a market growth of 7.5% CAGR during the forecast period.
Edible coating is a green technology used to regulate gas exchange, moisture transfer and oxidation processes in a variety of products. One of the most important advantages of using edible films and coatings is that various active chemicals can be included in the polymer matrix and taken with food, thereby improving safety as well as nutritional and sensory properties. Food manufacturers have stepped up efforts to extend shelf life and improve existing packaging technologies, ensuring microbial safety and preserving food from the effects of external variables. As a result, new product developments from producers are expected to contribute to the growth of the edible films and coatings market.
The edible films and coatings market is expected to be driven by greater consumer adaptation to eco-friendly packaging options. This technology can help improve product quality, shelf life, safety and functionality. The increased use of plastic in food packaging and transport is causing concern because it is difficult to break down properly. Edible films and coatings are one of the best potential food packaging alternatives because they can increase food storage, provide an alternative to conventional packaging solutions, are biodegradable and environmentally friendly, and can extend shelf life. preservation of products.
In addition to replacements of packaging compared to artificial packaging, the product has many advantages. The polymer is found in edible materials and has several advantages including low unit weight and excellent tensile qualities. Natural biopolymers have various advantages in the life sciences because they can be obtained from marine life, agriculture or animals, and they are biocompatible and biodegradable. As a result, manufacturing organizations are actively spending on research and development.
Benefits of edible coating include reducing packaging waste, extending the shelf life of fresh and minimally processed produce, and protecting it from hazardous environmental effects by preserving the transmission of oxygen, carbon dioxide, moisture, odor and taste compounds in a food system. Edible coatings improve shelf life, limit water and moisture loss, delay ripening and prevent microbiological growth of fresh fruits and vegetables.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated economies around the world. Many industries are affected by pandemics because their economic flow is slowed. The food packaging industry, like other industries, has hurt their economic growth. Due to the country-by-country lockdown, customer demand for food, fruits and vegetables decreased, which negatively impacted the edible films and coatings market at the time.
Consumer buying behavior and consumption habits have changed dramatically as a result of the pandemic. Reduced production, lower consumer demand, a gap in the supply chain, as well as import and export restrictions. These factors are all hindering the expansion of the edible films and coatings business; Nevertheless, as things return to normal post COVID era, new market opportunities are expected to emerge and the edible films and coatings market is expected to grow.
Market Growth Factors
Natural resources increase demand for edible packaging
Traditional artificial food packaging materials have a number of drawbacks in terms of environmental contamination and the use of non-renewable resources in manufacturing. The search for alternative packaging materials and packaging formats has increased significantly.
Sustainability, environment, ethics, food safety, food quality and product costs are all becoming increasingly relevant aspects for today’s customers when purchasing food products, and a number of these topics are regulated by food packaging laws. All of these issues have influenced the food packaging industry’s growing demand for edible coatings. Since these edible films are made from natural and organic ingredients, such as wheat gluten, whey protein, corn zein, waxes, cellulose derivatives and pectins, these edible films are made from fruits, nuts, grains and vegetables.
Edible packaging is becoming increasingly popular as a substitute for plastic packaging
Oxo-biodegradable plastics are made from ordinary plastics and combined with additives to stimulate biodegradation. The main outcome of oxidation, on the other hand, is the breaking up of the substance or product into small particles that end up in the environment. As a result, some companies are producing edible packaging to extend the shelf life of fruits and vegetables, reduce waste, and improve shelf life. Apeel Sciences, a start-up established in United States, has developed an edible coating for fruit called Apeel to combat food waste and plastic packaging waste, and deliver up to twice the shelf life across the food industry. Apeel is created from the skins, peels, and seeds of plants, which include food components.
Marketing Restriction Factor:
Limits of edible coatings
Despite the obvious benefits of edible coatings, there are some obstacles preventing edible coatings from being used on a large scale. The use of propolis-based edible coatings in the food sector is restricted due to their intense and distinctive odor and taste. Compared to untreated tomato, candelilla wax loaded with active constituents of F. cernua had lower sensory acceptance. According to Tahir et al., a high concentration of edible gum coating can impair sensory perceptions of coated products.
Similarly, Sucheta et al. found that tomatoes coated with composite edible films including commercial pectin, corn flour, and beetroot powder lost their color angle over time compared to uncoated tomatoes. Stability of bioactive components, poor film forming characteristics and surface adhesion may be an additional issue that limits commercial applications of aloe vera gel edibles, in addition to their negative impact on sensory quality.
