Global Smart Packaging Market is segmented by technology into active packaging, modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) and intelligent packaging (IP). Among these Technologies, active packaging accounted for largest share in the global market. This segment accounted for a significant share of demand in industries including food and beverage, pharmaceutical and personal care owing to its superior moisture control and corrosion protection properties. Also, growing application scope on account of availability in various forms including plastic, fabric, and plastic films is expected to be the key driver for the industry. Active packaging can be defined as a system in which the product, package and the environment interact in a positive way to extend the shelf life or to achieve some characteristics.

 

Active packaging includes additives or freshness enhancers that are capable of scavenging oxygen; adsorbing carbon dioxide, moisture, ethylene and flavor/odour taints, releasing ethanol, sorbates, antioxidants and other preservatives to maintain temperature control. Active packaging provides functions beyond product protection and identification, such as moisture control; intelligent packaging incorporates features that indicate status or communicate product changes and other information. While many active and intelligent packaging products, such as packaged desiccants and volatile corrosion inhibitors, have a well established presence, emerging products include antimicrobial packaging, advanced time-temperature monitors, and Smartphone-enabled interactive packaging products.
