“Flexible protective packaging segment, by type, to gain maximum share during the forecast period”
The flexible protective packaging segment is projected to account for the largest share in 2022, mainly because of the growth in consumption of food & beverage, dairy, and cosmetic products.
Flexible protective packaging is appealing as well as functional as it offers convenient packaging, which can be easily wrapped according to the size and shape of the product.

“Foam plastics segment, by material, to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period”
Raw materials such as foam plastics, paper & paperboard, and plastics are used for protective packaging. The foam plastic segment accounted for the largest market share in terms of value, in the protective packaging market.
Foam plastics are lightweight and provide thermal insulation and offer shock-dampening properties; this segment is thus projected to be the fastest-growing in the protective packaging market.
“Cushioning segment, by function, is projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period”
The main function of protective packaging is to protect the product from any kind of damage such as physical or environmental. It is required in order to withstand damage such as external shock, vibration, compression, and climatic conditions during shipping, handling, and storage.
The cushioning segment is projected to grow at the highest rate in the protective packaging market owing to its soft or resilient material used to fill gaps, render shape, and provide protection to the product. It restrains the movement of the packed product and prevents damage from shock and vibration during transportation.
Cushioning protects fragile and lightweight items from damage during transportation and warehousing.
