“Increasing demand from the food & beverages industry to drive the antimicrobial packaging market”

The antimicrobial packaging market size is estimated to grow from USD 7.28 billion in 2015 to USD 10.00 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.54%.

“Controlled release packaging technology to gain maximum growth during the forecast period”

It is also projected to have the largest market share due to increasing commercialization and increased demand for packaged goods in the region.

The health-related benefits offered by antimicrobial package ingto various industries are also seen as a driving force of growth in this region.
