Flexible plastic is the main pack type for confectionery, while the thin wall plastic containers format also holds a significant share in this category. In addition, folding cartons have been gaining share in recent years, partly as a result of the trend towards gifting in chocolate confectionery.
Chocolate confectionery recorded rising sales in China in 2021, which benefited the unit volumes of flexible plastic, other rigid containers and aluminium foil used in the packaging of chocolate confectionery in this year. Chocolate confectionery performed much better in 2021 than in 2020, when it recording declining sales and packaging unit volumes, with the epidemic being controlled better and trial vaccines being launched nationwide in 2021.
Increasing awareness of environmental issues on the part of consumers, manufacturers and the authorities will exert a growing influence on the development of confectionery packaging during the forecast period. The impact of plastic waste on the environment is becoming a particularly prominent concern.
The primary constraint on growth in confectionery packaging will be the further development of the health and wellness trend, which will be supported by the Chinese Government’s increasing focus on and greater investment of resources in public health initiatives. Addressing the increasing incidence of obesity is likely to be an important feature of public health policy during the forecast period, encouraging consumers to pay greater attention to their calorie intake, and particularly their consumption of sugar.
