According to the new market research report “Flexible Plastic Pouches Market by Material (PE, PP), Type (Flat Pouches, Stand-up Pouches), Application (Food, Beverage), and Region (APAC, North America, Europe, South America, and the Middle East & Africa) – Global Forecasts to 2026,” published by MarketsandMarkets, the flexible plastic pouches market size is estimated at USD 53.7 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 73.5 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 6.5%.

The flexible plastic pouches market is witnessing high growth due to the increased demand for lightweight, convenient, and cost-effective packaging products and food and beverage applications solutions.

The flexible plastic pouches market is segmented on type into flat pouches and stand-up pouches. The flat pouches segment led the market in terms of both value and volume. In addition, its cost-effectiveness and aesthetic display in stores contribute toward its leading share in the flexible plastic pouches market.

What materials are taking centre stage?

We provide the pouches in polyethylene (PE/PE) and polypropylene (CPP/OPP) mono material structures. This makes them more sustainable and attractive with the same properties, strength and durability as existing non-recyclable options.

Our Pouches are more than just recyclable.

Like our BOPP bags, these pouches take existing packaging technology to the next level, not just because they’re recyclable. A while ago, the consensus in our industry was that PE/PE was too ‘stretchy’ to print on at any speed. However, our new PE/PE pouches allow top-quality gravure printing and handle the heat during conversion.

Forever at the forefront of innovation, we realise that there must first be demand for the recycling service to get relevant authorities to invest. So that’s something we’re working on, but it’s important to realise we are all responsible and there’s power in numbers.

What can set my pouch apart from the rest?

We understand the importance of shelf appeal, especially when it comes to more premium products. The laminated top layer means that we can get gravure print up to 9 colours and provide that quality finish that many recyclable materials can’t. No longer do you have to choose between recyclable and attractive packaging.

With our high-quality pouches by your side, you can ensure that your product and brand name always stand out, no matter the placement! In addition, the graphic panels on the bags are an excellent place for your branding and help set the canvas for eye-catching branding.

Bags are opened and closed up to 100 times during their lifespan, which is why it’s paramount that our closure options can withstand this amount of use. Reseal grip zippers, pocket zippers, and Aplix systems are available. These offer great convenience for the consumer, allowing accessible open and close and preserving the product within.

Easy-open cuts or tear notches are suited to products that require quick and easy opening, perfect for protein, pet food and more! 

We encourage you to contact our sales team for an in-depth chat about choosing pouches for your product. As you can see, the demand is there, regardless of which country you are in. We are a global supplier, so we guarantee you’ll be pleased with our service and reputation, whether USA-based, UK-based or even Australia-based. 

If your brand wants to invest in quality packaging, we will guide you through the entire print process. In addition, we are providing recommendations along the way to improve efficiency, reduce costs and add untold value to the end product.
