The Global Package Testing Market was valued at USD 9.88 billion in 2021 and is expected to register a CAGR of 12.43% over the forecast period (2022 - 2027). The packaging of consumable products has witnessed a drastic transformation over the past few decades, with a higher focus on enhancing the shelf life to reduce the costs associated with damaged goods. This emphasis has created a robust demand for effective package testing in the package testing market.

- Package testing plays a prominent role in almost every supply chain. Package testing ensures the business’s packaging is up to specifications and avoids costly product damage, legal situations, and poor user experiences. Package testing identifies opportunities in several areas, such as savings on packaging costs, the performance of packaging materials in realistic environmental conditions and transportation scenarios, quality control insights, scalability of packaging, and compliance issues, such as certifications, specifications, and regulations.
- Globalization increased owing to trade liberalization, improvements in transport infrastructure and communication technologies, and the growth of multinational companies in the food retail sector. This boosted international trade in perishable foods like dairy, fruits, and vegetables.

The reliability of the package is tested by performing numerous tests, such as drop, vibration, and shock tests, directed by standard institutions, such as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the International Seed Testing Association (ISTA).
- However, the costs associated with packaging testing are quite high, making it harder for small-scale manufacturers and industries to invest in this process, thereby hindering the growth of this market.
- Moreover, the COVID-19 outbreak positively impacted the market studied. The COVID-19 outbreak increased demand for packaging testing services because partial or complete lockdowns implemented across the country forced end users to use parcel services. This necessitated proper packaging.
- The pharmaceutical industry has grown dramatically since its peak during the COVID-19 pandemic. This vertical is being driven by ongoing medical advancements, which is not new in the case.
