The inclination of end users is more toward eco-friendly materials; therefore, the adoption of non-biodegradable material-based punnet trays will rapidly see a downfall in the near future. As per the TMR analysis, Germany is anticipated to hold a share of more than 10% of the Europe punnet trays market in 2027.

Increasing Concerns over Hygienic & Convenient Produce Packaging to Impact Sales

The demand for packed fruits continue to increase due to changing preferences of the urban millennial population. Consumers are very much concerned about hygiene when it comes to food and its packaging. This is expected to play a pivotal role in fueling the adoption of punnet trays in the packaging of fresh produce.

As these products are mainly made of plastic material and cardboard, they help to reduce food contamination, and maintain food hygiene and freshness. Moreover, these are most cost-effective as compared to non-disposable fresh produce packaging solutions. The aforementioned properties leads to an increased adoption of punnet trays by players operating across the fresh produce supply chain.
