Smaller-Sized, Lightweight Products Drive Growth in Food
Container Market

Growth will be driven by the popularity of smaller, single-serving
containers for convenience and portion control. The container product
mix will continue to shift toward using lighter over heavier containers,
and from rigid to flexible formats.

Key Finding: Snacking Fuels Demand for Smaller

The traditional three meals a day have become less common, with younger,
busier generations opting for smaller snacks throughout the day. This
convenience eating also assists those wanting to control portion sizes,
resulting in increased demand for food containers, particularly smaller,
single-serving cups and bowls. Smaller-sized packages are expanding
snacking possibilities from traditional chips and candy to meet the
healthy eating trends of nuts, yogurt, hummus, fruits, and vegetables.

Other Key Findings
  • Flexible Pouches Continue to Meet Needs of Packagers and Consumers
  • Containers Drawing Shoppers from Periphery to Center of the Store
  • Source Reduction Reduces Cost and Environmental Impact
