BCC conducted this study of the advanced and smart packaging industry to evaluate, investigate and predict the market for active, controlled and intelligent packaging solutions for food and beverages. In addition, the report also analyzes the market for advanced packaging components. The report examines the present situation in the global market as well as the prospective trends. Advanced and smart packaging is an area of food technology that already has some interesting innovations and is progressing further to provide better food preservation and security for consumers.

A summary of present and projected market size, sales estimations, market leaders, market shares, advanced packaging product categories, and factors and drivers influencing the market for active, controlled and intelligent packaging and its applications is presented. In addition, the report offers precise information concerning the following: integrated technology for the present and future market; food packaging distribution trends; patents; food packaging safety concerns; trade and transport evolution; and advanced packaging regulations. Challenges, advantages and disadvantages are discussed to the extent of the scope of the study, along with prospects for advanced packaging technology manufacturers, retailers and distributors.

The report is a presentation of the market economics from the best available data from companies that implement active, controlled and intelligent packaging solutions. Many of the smaller companies to date have stayed with conventional packaging technologies, due to either fund issues or lack of knowledge about advanced packaging techniques or implementation procedures.

Sales data analysis of active, controlled, intelligent packaging and components has been conducted and presented by category and subcategory wherever relevant for the period of 2010 to 2012, with a projection given for 2017. The report presents region-wise sales data for North America (U.S. and Canada), Europe, and emerging markets for the same years.


As with any technology on the rise, advanced packaging—including active, control and intelligent packaging technologies—should be appraised intermittently to obtain the latest industry information. For the advanced packaging industry, updates on financial, technological, product-related, food distribution, and retailing information are important. Advanced packaging is now almost mandatory, especially for retail food chains and other super stores. This report gives companies an analytical perspective on the consolidated aspects of advanced packaging for food and beverages.

Since advanced packaging technology is mostly integrated with other packaging technologies, this report, in essence, attempts to offer the best possible data available on market players, segregated sales, mergers and joint ventures, specific regulatory aspects, and other innovatory factors. Innovatory factors are driving advanced packaging manufacturers to adopt scientific and creative approaches for both attracting customers and providing safe and tenable food packaging solutions. As an example of the many aspects of these solutions, active and controlled packaging may focus on food freshness and quality during shipment, while intelligent packaging may offer protection of food items from shoplifting along with other advantages. Thus, this study is based on quantifiable data concerning diverse packaging requisite factors, offering insights on the market segment of active, controlled and intelligent packaging for food and beverage.


This study examines the need for advanced food packaging for purposes of better and controlled food protection for reasons related to freshness, quality, environmental impact, theft, or other issues. The study would offer interesting insights to those in the food and beverage industry, the related packaging industry, organized retailers, and other market players.


This report covers the market for active, controlled and intelligent packaging, including advanced packaging components. BCC’s analysis includes an evaluation of the market and market breakdown (including by region and by application) for each advanced packaging type; a breakdown of the market into subcategories as the available data allows; market forecasting; and examination of regulatory aspects, innovations, challenges, patent details, market leaders, and market share of individual packaging types. In addition, the study also discusses scientific advances, consumer behaviors, market vibrancy, and so forth.

Market data is presented to show global market trends and growth. Data are statistically validated for present and future predictions.


Both primary and secondary sources were utilized in preparing this study. BCC examined technical literature such as newsletters, journals, technical blogs, digests, news feeds, latest technical articles, technical articles from companies, research papers, and other sources. Interviews and other communication mechanisms with various food and beverage advanced packaging experts were used to gather data. Market projections reflect the present market economy, the application status, prospective application of the advanced packaging techniques, probable unit prices, consumption power, and market direction.


BCC surveyed a number of relevant companies in the advanced packaging industry for food and beverage to obtain data for this study. These included manufacturers, retailers, distributors, and end users of advanced packaging for food and beverages.
