Eggs are highly fragile and delicate food items. This makes it imperative to carefully pack eggs, to ensure their protection from partial or complete physical damage during storage, handling, and transportation. Egg packaging has earned the utmost importance in recent times, due to the increasing in egg consumption and rising need to transport eggs over longer distances than before. The foremost driving factor of the global egg packaging market is the delicate nature of eggs, as they require extremely careful packaging order to prevent any type of losses. Conventionally used cartons and trays are meant to sustain shocks during transportation and handling. Moreover, their outer surfaces form an additional fitting that safeguards eggs from dislocation and prevents physical damage. The exponential growth in the global egg production is also driving this market. Furthermore, consumers are preferring eggs over meat as a safe and inexpensive source of protein, which is also boosting this market. The flourishing food industry across the globe, especially in emerging economies of China, India, Brazil, and Indonesia others has also aided the egg packaging market. However, the volatile raw material costs lead to fluctuation of packaging material, intense competition among manufacturers, and increasing prohibitory regulations over plastic may restrict the of the egg packaging market.

The egg packaging market is fragmented on the basis of material and product. On the basis of material, the market is classified into paper and plastic. Paper is further sub-divided into paperboard, recycled paper, and molded cup. The plastic segment further includes polyethylene terephthalate and polystyrene. In 2018, the paper segment held a major share of over 50% of the total market and is projected to dominate the market globally in the years ahead. This can be attributed to the growing preference for paper material preferred over plastic due to the former’s competitive advantages like low cost, high heat resistance, and environment-friendly nature. Alternatively, plastic packaging is projected to exhibit a significant CAGR of around 5.8% in the years ahead, due to its advantages like leak-resistance and transparency that enables inspection without physical handling. PET plastic holds a major share of the plastic segment, due to its cleaning and reusability properties. Furthermore, most of the plastic packaging is used in trays.
