Europe Hologram and Smart Packaging Market Segment Analysis - By Type

Active Packaging held the largest share of 64% in the Europe Hologram and Smart Packaging Market in 2020. Active packaging is an opening alternative to traditional packaging methods. It refers to an inventive food-packaging concept presented in response to continuous changes in consumer demands and market trends. The benefits of operating active packaging for unpreserved goods comprise lessening of the amounts of active substances, cutback of localisation activity and relocation of particles from film to food, and removal of needless industrial courses that might present bacteria into the product. The components frequently used in active packaging systems include oxygen scavengers, ethylene scavengers, flavour and odour absorber/releaser, antimicrobial and antioxidant. These developments in active packaging led to fuelling in many areas including controlled respiration rate in horticultural products,elayed oxidation in muscle foods,  moisture migration in dried products and microbial growth which enhance the development of Europe Hologram and Smart Packaging Market in the forecast period.

Europe Hologram and Smart Packaging Market Segment Analysis - By Material

Plastics held the largest share in the Europe Hologram and Smart Packaging Market in 2020. Plastic is the most preferable choice in smart packaging as it survives extreme environments and don't easily degrade in hot and cold temperatures, especially when it comes to food packaging, it preserves the integrity of the food inside it. It also guards products from dust, odours moisture, oxygen, and light. Plastics comprise surplus elements such as antioxidants and processing aids which also aid in its demand. Active packaging implicates an intimate contact concerning the food and its package so it is the layer contiguous to the food that is often chosen to be active. Thus, the rising demand and constant growth in the plastic industry will contribute to the growth of Europe Hologram and Smart Packaging Market.

Europe Hologram and Smart Packaging Market Segment Analysis - By End-Use Industry

Food and Beverages held the largest share in the Europe Hologram and Smart Packaging Market in 2020 and is growing at a CAGR of 8.3% during 2021-2026. Increasing per capita income of individuals coupled with the increasing population is accelerating the demand for food and beverages in various regions. To pick up with the demands, different countries are trading their food products across the world. This has given rise to packaging companies that are delivering solutions that expand the shelf life of the food products being exported. Traditional packaging products cannot meet the requirements of food products like meat and frozen foods. These limitations have developed to new technologies like active and intelligent packaging which provide longevity and freshness to the food products being exported. The gradual increase in the food industry, especially in the frozen food sector where smart packaging is highly growing will certainly enhance the growth of Europe Hologram and Smart Packaging Market.
