Tray market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.3% during

NEWARK, Del, May 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Trays are a common primary packaging material because they are inexpensive, lightweight, and durable and can be used by food chains, restaurants, pharmacies, and more. These are the main drivers in the tray market.

One of the major growth drivers of the tray market is its growing awareness of using hygienic packaging solutions for various food packaging applications. The preference for ready-to-eat foods emerged as a key driver for the double sale of trays.

Moreover, hygiene is the main concern of consumers and hence the demand for trays with MAP and packaging based on smart technology is gaining momentum. Ready meal trays ensure a durable and economical packaging material compared to other options.

Trays with a divider help store a variety of products in one package format and eliminate the need for multiple packages. This increases the profitability of packaging for end users.

Based on these factors, the global trays market is expected to set a new benchmark and grow 2.2x until 2032.

Zero waste edible trays creating buzz and spinning At the top Tray sales market

Despite the many advantages of plastic trays, consumers are looking for alternative packaging formats that are sustainable and more environmentally friendly. In the recent past, edible trays are gaining popularity because they generate no waste and are safe for consumption after use. Trays made of sugar cane, palm leaf, corn starch, bagasse, etc. emerge as edible trays that boost the overall sales of the tray market. It is anticipated that these edible trays will lead to an efficient packaging alternative to traditional trays as they meet all consumer packaging requirements.

In addition, paper bins or fiber-based bins are easy to recycle and minimize the waste rate. Paper-based packaging formats can be recycled 7-8 times. Therefore, the volume of waste bin dumps has decreased significantly in the recent past.

By penetrating these sustainable and green trays, the manufacturers plan to create sustainable revenue generation opportunities in the global tray market.
