Moreover, insulated packaging made of corrugated cardboard protects delivered goods. The combination of stiffness and cushioning properties makes them physically strong to withstand impact during transit and movement. Additionally, they are very cost-effective because the raw materials needed to produce corrugated cardboard are inexpensive and widely accessible.

On the other hand, the metal segment is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. Foam is sandwiched between the two metal sheets that make up the Metal IP. Metal sheets can be altered as needed depending on the application. The metal panels used in the production of IP products operate as a moisture and air barrier and produce a vapor that improves the thermal stability of the stiff core. These metal panels are quite strong and come in a variety of hues and shapes. Thus, these facts drive the market expansion during the forecast period.

Based on type, global insulated packaging is categorized into rigid, flexible, and semi-rigid. The flexible segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2021 and is expected to show its dominance during the forecast period. Flexible packaging is increasingly in demand because of its appropriate shape, simplicity of use, ability to be resold, lightweight, and reduced environmental impact. Additionally, the expansion of the market is fueled by the usage of flexible packaging in ready-to-eat food products and vegetables. According to the Flexible Packaging Association (FPA), flexible packaging accounted for nearly 59 percent of shipments in the United States $170 billion packaging market in June 2019. Besides, the rigid segment is anticipated to grow at a fast rate during the forecast period. Paperboard, fiberboard, plastics, corrugated cardboard, and paper are all used to make rigid packing goods. Rigid items like cases, trays, bottles, cans, cups, pots, and cartons are made from the materials. Using tapes, staples, and adhesives, rigid items are sealed. RFID and different color printing techniques can be used to make the items.
