TMR suggests that the high growth in consumption of food & beverages is expected to be the major driving force behind the growth of stand-up pouches globally. Suitability of stand-up pouches for packaging liquid products will create strong demand prospects in the market. Beverage companies are shifting their product packaging from metal cans to stand-up pouches due to low weight and good barrier properties of the latter. Stand-up pouches are also significantly cheaper than other packaging alternatives which, in turn, makes them a perfect choice for the packaging of low-to-medium range products.
Owing to their multiple-layer structure, the recyclability of these pouches becomes practically infeasible. Thus, the huge amount of resin and raw materials that enter into the production process of pouches remain unrecovered. The removal of various layers of lamination from slider zipper pouches require a special process which incurs additional cost, and may add to the landfill problems.

However, large proportion of the demand is still fulfilled by local manufacturers.
Introduction of new design formats is expected to generate high demand for stand-up pouches in the global packaging industry. On the basis of product type, the aseptic stand-up pouches segment accounts for the largest market share due to growing brand awareness and consumer demand for hygienic products. Recycling of stand-up pouches is the key challenge in the stand-up pouches market.
