The global sachet packaging market size was valued at USD 7.89 billion in 2021. The market is projected to grow from USD 8.30 billion in 2022 to USD 11.97 billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period. The global COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with sachet packaging experiencing lower-than-anticipated demand across all regions compared to pre-pandemic levels. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a decline of -2.2% in 2020 as compared to 2019.

Sachet packaging is a flat three or four-layer pack made from plastic, paper, or aluminum. It consumes less packaging material and storage space, decreasing transportation costs. This is one of the critical factors driving the global market growth. Moreover, as sachet products cost less than products with bulk packaging, consumers with any income group can afford them. Sachets can be used widely for packing powders, liquids, capsules, and wipes.

The market is gaining traction due to the products such as hair oil, tea, detergents, shampoos, cream, lubricants, coffee, sauces, mouth fresheners, and many others. The growing demand for packaging small quantities of products in many end-use industries, such as personal care & cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, food, and beverages, is favoring market expansion. The availability of substitutes for sachet packaging, such as flexible and stick packaging, is expected to hinder the market growth prospects to some extent.


Industry Growth Affected Due to Major Supply Chain Disruptions

The COVID-19 outbreak had a widespread effect all across the world. Many governments imposed strict lockdown measures and social distancing norms to avoid spreading the virus. Manufacturing facilities were temporarily shut down during the initial stages of the pandemic. Moreover, the economic crisis is expected to cause a significant delay in the commercial roll-out of the packaging industry. Many large and small-scale businesses, including the packaging industry, were affected due to the emergence of the virus. Further, key players faced numerous challenges along with disruptions in the supply chain. However, the situation improved in the second half of 2022 as more supplies came online.

Utilization of Active Packaging in Sachets to Emerge as a Global Trend

One emerging trend enhancing the market growth is the utilization of active packaging in sachets. Active antimicrobial packaging integrates with packaged food and headspace for reducing, retarding, or hindering the development and spoilage of pathogenic microorganisms.

Oxygen absorbers are developed using powdered iron or ascorbic acid. Iron-based scavengers cannot surpass the inspections of metal detectors in the packaging lines, whereas ascorbic acid proves beneficial for these events. Sachets that help in absorbing oxygen (O2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) are readily available and can be found in roasted ground coffee packages. This creates profitable growth opportunities and is anticipated to impel market growth over the forecast period.


Augmenting Demand for Small-size and Convenient Packaging to Propel Industry Growth

The growing demand for small-size, hygienic, and convenient packaging is driving the global market expansion. Food manufacturers are increasing their focus on sustaining the impact of virus outbreaks in the future. This has led to a subsequent increase in the demand for sachet packaging. Since the outbreak of coronavirus, the demand for hand sanitizers is growing to implement basic hygiene practices. Most hand sanitizers are packaged in sachets, which fosters the global market growth.

Moreover, sachet packaging is cost-effective for distribution and packaging activities owing to the reduction in product waste and high demand. Additionally, the rapid rise in the utilization of recyclable and sustainable materials for sachet manufacturing creates immense opportunities for market growth over the projected timeframe. The presence of key market players and their focus on innovative product launches also boosts the demand for small-size packaging. The market value is driven by the escalating demand for portable and convenient packaging solutions. Furthermore, the growing sachet packaging demand from the food and beverage sector is another critical factor creating immense opportunities for market growth over the projected timeframe.

Affordability of Sachets for Promotional Uses to Foster the Product Demand

Sachet packaging is an affordable solution for consumers and manufacturers than traditional packaging. The key developments in the materials and machines offer lucrative opportunities for many end users to adopt these products and attract consumers with low-income groups. Sachets are also considered highly cost-effective for sampling and promotional purposes. During product launches, several brands make small quantities of the product (usually 3ml – 5ml) and pack them in sachets for consumer trials. It allows consumers to try the product and move on to larger pack sizes for bulk purchases. It further results in higher penetration of sachets in markets as the ideal packaging solution for product sampling, driving global market growth. 


Shortage and Rapid Rise in the Cost of Raw Materials to Hinder Market Growth

The global market primarily uses plastic, paper, aluminum foil, and cellulosic. The market suffers from a shortage of polypropylene raw materials used in the production of plastic-based packaging materials. The packaging sizes are becoming smaller to meet the lower purchasing power of consumers, making sachet-type packaging a popular solution. However, it also negatively affects the manufacturers, as they cannot manufacture enough sachets due to raw material scarcity. This limits the market growth and is further expected to hamper the demand for sachet packaging. Additional factor hindering industry expansion is the availability of substitutes such as stick packaging and stringent government regulations on the use of plastics.
