Global Cheese Liners Market to Grow to Around USD 1700 Million by 2030

07-Dec-2022 | Zion Market Research

The global cheese liner market size was worth around USD 1300 million in 2021 and is predicted to grow to around USD 1700 million by 2030 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of roughly 3.50% between 2022 and 2030.

Cheese is a nutritious food item made from curd which is a semisolid byproduct of milk curdling or coagulation. If fresh milk is not stored under proper conditions or is left unused for a long time, it starts to curdle, making it sour in taste and forming an acidic curd which later produces a watery fluid called whey while also leaving behind semisolid curd or call it cheese. Cheese may be considered unhealthy by a certain section of the population, however, it can be accommodated in any healthy diet pattern. Many cheese forms can be a good source of calcium, Vitamin B12 & A, Phosphorus, and high-quality protein.

Cheese liners are used to protect the physical and nutritional form of cheese by not allowing moisture or any other contaminated product to come in contact with the packaged cheese. It is an innovative packaging solution designed for dairy products, especially cheese. Cheese is extremely popular amongst end-consumers because of its properties like long shelf life and portability along with nutritional aspects. One of the reasons why cheese liners are becoming popular is because with their aid cheese can be stored in a protective environment and can be made available for sale when the market is favorable.

Covid-19 had a considerable impact on the global cheese liner market owing to the levy of transport restrictions and the closure of all non-essential manufacturing units and facilities. The supply of cheese liners was hampered during this duration. However, the global market is showing healthy signs of growth since the demand for cheese and subsequent need for cheese liners has increased after the second half of 2021

The global cheese liner market cap is expected to grow during the forecast period because of a significant rise in demand for cheese and cheese-based products. Owing to the rising awareness about the health benefits offered by cheese, a growing trend of adopting cheese in food items can be witnessed across the globe. In 2019, the United States cheese market generated a revenue of USD 34 billion whereas it is expected to grow to around USD 45 billion by 2027. Europe is known for its variety of cheese along with different flavors.

Global Cheese Liners Market

The growing reach of European cheese manufacturers has propelled the competition in the cheese liner segment thus generating high revenues which are projected to grow further during the forecast period. Another aspect driving the cheese liner market is the growing safety concerns related to food items.

Various rules have been put into place to make food items safe for consumption and contamination-free during all phases. Since all end consumers are now demanding high-quality food items, cheese manufacturers are under pressure to deliver well-packaged cheese thus aiding the global market growth.

The strict packaging guidelines may restrain the global market growth. The emergence of domestic players is expected to provide growth opportunities. The high cost of raw materials may challenge the global market expansion.

The global cheese liner market is segmented based on distribution channel, source, application, type, and region.

Based on distribution channels, the global market is segmented into B2C, B2B, and online retail. The global market is expected to be dominated by the B2B segment because of higher demand from many small-scale and large-scale end-users of the product. In the USA, 23.6% of the total businesses are generally B2B, and the same trend is projected in various other regions as well.

Based on the source, the global market segments are conventional and fiber-based. The global market is expected to be dominated by fiber-based sources because it uses reusable, renewable, and biodegradable materials for manufacturing the end product. In general, fiber-based packaging solutions are expected to grow at a CAGR of 3% in the coming few years.

By application, pharmaceuticals, food & beverage, and health supplements are the global market segments. Food & beverages are the largest consumers of cheese liners given the high demand for cheese in this sector. The Indian cheese market in 2021 is valued at over USD 56 billion which is expected to grow even further during the forecast period.

Based on type, the segments in the global market are poly drum liner, box liner, 640 block liner, and barrel liner. 640 lb block liners are more in demand given their extreme strength along with other mechanical properties that keep the product intact during the packaging process.

North America is anticipated to dominate the global cheese liner market during the forecast period owing to technological advancements in packaging solutions in regions like the USA and Canada. Currently, the USA is the largest provider of high-tech manufacturing systems with a market share of 31%. The favorable government policies may drive regional growth in the coming years.

Asia-Pacific and Europe are also expected to register high CAGR over the projection period because of the growing FMCG sector. Since the pharmaceutical and FMCG sectors are one of the largest consumers of plastic or unsustainable packaging solutions, they are under high scrutiny to adopt more sustainable ways of packaging products which may contribute to regional market share to expand.

The global cheese liner market is dominated by players like WINPAK LTD., PLASTOPIL, Graphic Packaging International, LLC, LD PACKAGING CO., LTD, Arena Products, Inc., Mondi, Kelley Supply, Inc., and Safepack Industries Ltd.

Recent Development:

  • In April 2022, Amcor announced recycle-ready packaging for cheese in Europe. The two newly launched applications will be used with its AmPrima recycle-ready solutions which will offer brands requiring good packaging with other qualities like material stiffness, graphic performance, barrier, seal strength, and other aspects of non-recyclable packaging.
  • In November 2020, Tesco announced its own label of cheese packaging that will save up to 260 tonnes of plastic every year. This is achieved by replacing the conventional packaging solution of square block shape with oblong packaging. To achieve the target of 260 tonnes, the company will also ditch the use of plastic trays that are used to deliver cheese.
