The global specialty paper market is expected to post a CAGR of over 3% during the period 2018-2022, according to the latest market research report by Technavio.
A key factor driving the growth of the market is the increasing environmental awareness. Plastic emerged as the easy solution for most of the packaging requirements, especially for packaging food and beverages. Plastic is economical and offers benefits such as robustness, lightweight, chemical resistance, and non-porosity. Owing to these factors, food and beverage manufacturers prefer using plastic over any other packaging material. However, plastic is virtually nondegradable and poses a serious threat to the environment. Thus, with increasing awareness of the environment and plastics unsustainability, plastic packaging is being replaced with specialty paper.

Global specialty paper market: Advent of smart packaging
Smart packaging is an emerging technology in the field of food packaging. It has more functions beyond the traditional inert and passive packaging. Smart packaging is useful in increasing the shelf life of products and reduces product wastage and damage, thus resulting in a cost-effective supply chain. The latter can be attributed to improved properties such as better moisture control. Smart packaging has advanced features such as antimicrobial and anti-oxidation enabled packaging, which enhances usability and safety of packaging solutions and products.
As smart packaging provides a better customer interface and extensive information about the products, it enhances consumer empowerment. This creates a perceived level of differentiation about the purchased brand. Smart packaging improves the quality control from the perspective of a brand. This incorporation of cutting-edge technologies is expected to drive the market during the forecast period, says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on specialty chemicals.
