Sealer stick has paved its way in the packaging industry. It facilitates air tight packaging without much efforts. Also, it is easy to use and carry. The property has resulted in wide scale adoption in food packaging industry.
Although, use of party packs is economical, it does not provides the provision of easy portability or reclosure. Likewise, packaged food ordered from restaurant carries the same issues. Hence, people are opting for sealer sticks packaging. The packaging allows easy transfer and storage of the leftover food. In addition, it can be stored in refrigerator or carried over distance. Reusability of the sealer sticks is one of the key factors contributing to expansion of sealer sticks market.
Lately, sealer sticks are used on large scale for snacks packaging. The segment has become one of the major contributors to the expansion of sealer sticks market in recent years. The growth is attributed to surge in demand for flexible packaging.
Light weight and low cost are two defining factors of sealer sticks. These properties have kept it favored over other packaging options.
Moreover, it is easily manufactured by plastic processing unit. Thus, it is widely available.
On the other hand, rising concerns pertaining to harmful effects of plastic usage are likely to slow down the adoption rate of sealer sticks in coming years. Further, this will impede the growth of global sealer sticks market.
The global consumption of packaged food is rising at an attractive pace, with snack food items packed in flow packs as a prominent segment and growth contributor. The party packs or relatively large bags of food products are highly preferred due to its economy over small pack sizes but also result in food leftovers for most of the times. As flow packs are not reclosable packaging format, the food cannot be preserved for later use in the same pouch, or else the consumer needs to transfer the food content into some airtight rigid container. Sealer sticks resolve this issue with the handling of food packed in non-reclosable bags and pouches by providing an airtight seal to any type or any size of bags and pouches. Increasing demand for flexible packaging and rising food packaging industry have attributed to the growth of sealer sticks market across the globe.
Increasing preference for unit dose packaging among consumers to restrain the global sealer sticks market
The sealer sticks market performance is majorly dependent on the preference for the large pack sizes by the consumers. On the contrary side, the consumers have found unit dose packaging as a highly convenient packaging solution which need not be carried for multiple usages. This has restrained the market for sealer sticks globally. Although, the consumption of food products packaged in bags and pouches is significantly high, while the adoption of sealer sticks is majorly limited to developed economies. Thus, the sealer sticks market has a large scope of expansion in the developing countries. Moreover, the manufacturing of sealer sticks is relatively easy such that even small plastic processing companies are capable of producing sealer sticks with strong efficacy. As the design and production of sealer sticks are relatively easier, even small plastic processing firms are capable of introducing innovative designs. Initially, the clip type sealer sticks were introduced to the consumers, while now the grip stick type sealer sticks are gaining high traction on the backdrop of low cost and lightweight. The Gripstic, a U.K. based plastic processing company, is specially engaged in the production of grip stick type sealer sticks.
