leaving conventional packaging
behind. Markets & Markets has
recently predicted a market worth of
$316.61 million by 2020, growing at
a CAGR of 6.26% during the review
period. The growth is driven by
growing customer demands for
convenience, quality assurance and
portability that stick packs offer.
For airlines, food chains and the
hospitality industry, stick packs offer
unmatched convenience, hygiene and economy. They’re easy to store,
dispense and carry; they provide serving accuracy and reduce wastage.
On a global scale, sticks are replacing sachets as they use up to 40% less film
than rectangular sachets, which translates into significant per-unit savings.
They offer ease of use by controlled opening and dispensing without spillage,
and since the stick pack is smaller, the carbon footprint is lesser compared to
other forms of packaging. The small size also means that stick pack equipment
tends to run at higher production speeds than sachet making equipment.
