Packaging plays an essential role in preventing products from contamination by bacteria. Dairy products need special care as they are perishable, and suitable packaging protects them during transportation and helps drive the growth of the dairy packaging market. The rapidly increasing demand for natural calcium-rich drinks will contribute to the growth of this market. In addition, the rising demand for flexible packaging due to its highly customizable and easily recyclable nature drives the growth of this market. Various types of flavored milk and increasing consumption of cheese among the young generation will foster the growth of the dairy packaging market.

  • For instance, in June 2021, Mondi collaborated with Hazeleger Kaas, a cheese packaging company, to launch new recyclable packaging for cheese. Packaging comprises recyclable mono-material polypropylene (PP), and the packaging label is also made up of PP, which helps recycle the product in one go.

The recent trends of achieving product differentiation through eye-catching and transparent packaging to increase the customer base will fuel the growth of the dairy packaging market. The growing health consciousness among people and consumption of dairy products aids market growth. The increasing number of substitutes for plastic for packaging since plastic is banned in many countries will bring new opportunities for the dairy packaging market. People's changing lifestyles and food preferences led to an unhealthy diet and deficiency of essential protein. Thus, raising the consumption of eggs as a rich source of protein is also boosting the growth of the dairy packaging market.

Milk and dairy products contain saturated fat, which is considered unhealthy fat and leads to heart-related and diabetic diseases, which will hamper the growth of the dairy packaging market. Plastic packaging of dairy products can contaminate products in excess light or high temperatures, restricting the growth of this market. The lack of recycling units and equipment for recycling plastic in developing nations will harm the growth of the dairy packaging market. Milk and dairy products are easily perishable, and they get rotten, raising the question of the packaging hindering the growth of the dairy packaging market.


COVID-19 has impacted all industries positively or negatively and changed people's living and eating preferences. Restaurant closure and lockdown contributed to the rising number of meals cooked at home and increased the demand for butter, cheese, and other products. After the pandemic, the dairy packaging market grew as the demand for a healthy diet and drinks increased the concern for safe packaging. The rising environmental concern raised the trend of sustainable packaging, which led to innovation in the packaging and growth of the dairy packaging market.

Based on the material, the market is segmented into plastic, glass, metal, paper & paperboard, and others. Plastic holds the largest market share in the dairy packaging market. Plastic is durable, lightweight, and easy to handle during transport. It is cheaper than its substitute, making it a better raw material choice. The use of recyclable plastic will drive the growth of this segment.


Based on the packaging type, the market is segmented into bags & pouches, boxes, jars & containers, films & wraps, bottles & cans, and others. Bags & pouches dominate the market of the dairy packaging market. Pouches are widely preferred as they are flexible and occupy less space during transportation. Pouches also resist the vapor and air from coming in contact with products. Bags generally use less material than boxes and cartons and are reusable, driving the growth of this segment.


Based on the application, the market is segmented into milk, cream & yogurt, eggs, cheese, ice cream, ghee & butter, and others. Milk holds the largest share of the dairy packaging market. Milk is rich in nutrients, and the consumption of milk products like tea and coffee is increasing worldwide, fuelling this segment's growth.
