With COVID-19 and lockdown restrictions, e-commerce sales have gone through the roof with e-commerce companies reporting sales worth USD 4.1 Million across platforms during the festive week of October 2020 in India. Such wide and rapidly growing e-commerce sales have led to the growth of the food storage container industry as the sales of products using food storage containers have also increased. According to the National Confectioners Association, overall sales of candy and chocolate have increased 3.8%. Between March 15 and August 9, 2020, chocolate sales increased by 5.5% and luxury chocolate sales increased by 12.5%.

Plastic packaging, such as containers, jugs, and plastic film, is mostly used in the food industry because it can be easily shaped and molded to fit the end applications.Due to its high demand, reusability properties, and cost efficiency, plastic accounts for the majority of consumption in the production of food containers. Over the forecast period, the glass segment is also expected to rise in market share. A plastic lid is normally attached to glass storage containers to keep them airtight. Glass jars are in high demand due to their ability to hold food fresh for longer than other types of containers.
Global Food Storage ContainerMarket Forecast and Trends
Driver: Growth of theE-Commerce Sector
The term e-commerce refers to the activity of buying and selling goods online. The internet has provided people with a platform to legally buy and sell anything via e-commerce platforms. e-Commerce is used for selling and purchasing a range of items such as books, electronics, clothing, applications, and furniture. It has helped several businesses and markets grow over the years.
With the rise of the internet, the e-commerce market has grown significantly over the years. According to the United Nations Conferenceon Trade and Development (UNCATD), global e-commerce sales were worth a massive USD 25.6 trillion in 2018 with the US, Japan, and China accounting for the three biggest e-commerce markets worldwide. The e-commerce sector in the U.S. registered an enormous jump of 44%, almost tripling the 15% increase registered in 2019. With such a large global market and rapid growth in sales, the e-Commerce market offers the ideal platform for the growth of the food storage container market. Companies can easily market their products on e-commerce platforms and grow their business. For instance, in 2018, e-commerce giant, Amazon held a 49% market share in entire e-commerce sales in the U.S. That is more than the combined market share of Amazon's top three competitors, eBay, Apple, and Walmart, with each having 6.6%, 3.9%, and 3.7% share respectively.
Energy consumption is one of the most pressing issues in today's world. With the constant demand for controlled use of existing energy resources and the need for new sustainable energy resources, companies are keen to move away from energy-intensive processes. Various processes, such as Aluminum smelting, and the production of iron and steel materials, are some of the most energy-intensive processes in the industry. The carbon footprint of a one-way glass bottle has been estimated to be 0.94 kg CO2 per kg. For an aluminum can, considering the 50% recycling rate, the carbon footprint has been calculated as 8.96 kg CO2 per kg. Furthermore, plastics such as LDPE or PET, polyethene have a carbon footprint of around 6 kg CO2 per kg of plastic.
These energy-intensive processes pose a huge challenge for the companies as governments and other regulatory bodies are pushing businesses to reduce their carbon footprint, and energy consumption by implementing strict regulations over carbon emission. Some companies are working towards reducing the carbon footprint by moving away from conventional energy sources to renewable energy sources such as hydroelectricity, solar energy, wind energy, and others. On the other hand, several businesses are switching to more energy-efficient systems. With carbon emission and energy consumption regulations becoming strict with every passing day, factors such as energy-intensive processes and the need to minimize carbon footprints are likely to limit the global food storage container market's growth during the forecast period.
Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Food Storage ContainerMarket
The food storage container market has been witnessing an increase in demand owing to the exponential growth in the demand for food products. The worldwide lockdowns and travel bans imposed by the governments of different countries to tackle the raging pandemic hampered the supply of fresh produce, leading people to stockpile processed food items, along with frozen food. This directly contributed to the increased demand for food storage containers. Flexible food storage containers, along with plastic and paper & paperboard food storage containers registered exponential growth while rigid food storage containers, along with steel and aluminum food storage containers registered a decrease in demand. Plastic food storage containers were slowly being phased out of the industry, but the pandemic has acted as a revitalizing medicine for plastic food storage containers. During the pandemic, demand for flexible food storage containers skyrocketed, resulting in a surge in demand for plastic food storage containers.
