The moulded fibre pulp is widely used as primary and secondary packages in various end-use industries. The strong protective cushioning properties coupled with cost effective packaging solutions, drives the global moulded fibre pulp packaging market. Easy reprocessing and biodegradable offerings results in boosting the demand for the moulded fibre pulp packaging. Furthermore, products made from moulded fibre pulp saves storage space by almost 60%-70% when compared to EPS and other foam products which in turn lowers the logistics costs. Moulded fibre pulp packaging is used as green packaging solutions thus making them most sought by companies projecting positive eco-friendly image.

Transfer moulded type accounts major share among the molded pulp type and offers products with wall thickness of 3mm to 5mm with smooth surface finish on one side. Some of the factors such as high volume production with uniform density and short cycle time drives the transfer moulded pulp type segment.

Asia Pacific, accounts major share in the global moulded fibre pulp packaging market, attributed by the continued growth in the food & electronic packaging. The key global players are capitalizing on these opportunities by increasing capacities and offering regional innovative products. The market is Asia Pacific is fragmented with presence of various mid-small players, especially in China.

Despite challenges in recycling capability as weaker and short fibres are generated, the manufacturers are developing innovative as well as competitive pulp products, with addition of virgin fibres. This inclusion of virgin fibres is to offer high strength to avoid damage while transportation as well as performance improver to outperform its substitute EPS. Some of the key players present in this market are HUHTAMAKI GROUP, UFP Technologies, Inc., Brødrene Hartmann A/S, Pactiv LLC, Celluloses De La Loire, KEIDING INC., EnviroPAK Corporation, KEYES Packaging Group, Robert Cullen Ltd., and Hawk Group among others.

The development of environmentally responsive packaging coupled with reduced costs for various end-users was a challenge dealt by packaging professionals. The moulded fibre pulp packaging is a solution towards this challenge with high efficiency in nesting and stacking of the products. Moulded fibre pulp offers as an alternative to the expanded polystyrene (EPS) in terms of cost and product performance and thus most preferred choice by various end-users. Food & Beverage (F&B) is the largest segment with more than 25% value share, owing to the retail friendly packaging. The end use segment is expected to dominate the market, as the moulded fibre pulp packaging is primarily used in egg and fruit packaging.

The consumer durables & electronics goods segment is expected to grow considerably over the forecast period, marking as second largest segment after F&B. This is attributed by the growing demand for less space and inexpensive yet superior protection packaging for electronic goods.
