Egg packaging refers to a packaging material specifically designed for safe storage and transportation of eggs. The delicate and porous nature of egg shells demands tough and secure packaging solution. Cartons, trays, baskets, and containers are a few of the most commonly used egg-packaging solutions. They are manufactured by using paperboard, recycled paper, polyethylene terephthalate, or polystyrene. These materials provide convenience and also help absorbing the stress or shock exerted during handling or transporting the eggs. Nonetheless, the egg packaging preserves the eggs from bacteria, tainting, natural predators, and loss of moisture. Also, possible crushing during handling, storage, or transportation of the eggs is protected by the egg packaging. Numerous eggs are broken during transportation as compared to any other step during processing and distribution. Hence, the economic damage causes due to broken eggs as the occurrence of cracks increases the risk for bacterial contamination of the broken eggs, which reduces the quality and causes food safety issues. Therefore, egg packaging in the form of trays, cardboard boxes, or cartons is majorly used for packaging the eggs. The cartons can give the most excellent mechanical protection for the eggs. The cartons have a dimpled form and the structure helps in protecting the eggs against stresses and shocks exerted during storage and transportation thereby, curbing the possible damage or crushing of the eggshells. Hence, the manufacturers are introducing egg boxes of multiple shapes and sizes to provide convenience for storage and transportation of the eggs. Thus, the rising preference for egg packaging products in the form of trays, cardboard boxes, or cartons for transporting eggs is driving the egg packaging market growth.


Sonoco Products Company.; Placon; MAUSER Group; Jin Fu Hua Packaging Industrial Co., Ltd; Huhtamaki Oyj; CKF Inc.; Cascades Inc.; Hartmann; Reynolds Group Holdings Limited; and Cellulose de la Loire are among the well-established players in the global egg packaging market.

For instance, China is the global manufacturing hub and largest raw material supplier for various industries and it was among one of the worst affected countries. The lockdown of various plants and factories in China have restricted the global supply chains and disrupted the manufacturing activities, delivery schedules, and various products sales. Various companies have already announced possible delays in product deliveries and slump in future sales of their products. In addition, the global travel bans imposed by countries in Europe, Asia, and North America are hindering the business collaborations and partnerships opportunities. All these factors are hampering the food and beverage industry and thus acting as restraining factors for the growth of various markets related to this industry.
