The global market, based on type, is segmented into physical, chemical, and microbiological. The physical segment dominated the market with the largest share in 2016 since the determination of physical properties of a product is an essential application for packaging testing. This is followed by chemical testing of packaging which is conducted for the determination of chemical properties such as corrosion level and overall composition of the material, monitoring product quality, toxic detection, contaminants detection, and to meet other regulatory standards.
The packaging testing market, based on material type, is segmented into glass, plastic, paper & paperboard, metal, and others which include wood, polystyrene, bioplastic, cloth, and other flexible packaging. The plastic segment accounted for the largest share of this market in 2016. The paper & paperboard segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022. The market for paper packaging testing is growing with an increase in the use of paper & paperboard due to their easy and abundant availability, lower cost, and environment-friendly nature.
The global market, based on technology, is segmented into physical tests, spectroscopy & photometric-based, chromatography-based, and others which include chemical test, molecular, and isotope methods. The physical tests segment dominated the market in 2016. The spectroscopy & photometric-based segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022. Physical tests not only assure reliability, quality, and performance of packaging products but also help improve the efficiency of product performance, thereby resulting in cost savings.
The global market, based on end-use industry, is segmented into food & beverage, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, personal care, and others which include various industries such as textile, automobile, transportation, environmental, and other consumer goods.
