The hottest snack food will bring new growth space

Snack food will bring new growth space to the plastic packaging industry

with the economic development of China and the improvement of residents' consumption level, people's consumption patterns are increasingly diversified and casual. In this era of rapid consumption, fast and convenient snack food has become a new favorite in Chinese daily food consumption. As the post-80s and post-90s generation gradually grew into the main force of consumption, snack food also complied with this development, and the total consumption increased rapidly, which also led to the development of the plastic packaging industry

according to the current product pattern of snack foods, snack foods in China can be roughly divided into eight categories, namely, cereal puffing, fried nuts, fried potatoes, fried grains, non fried nuts, sugar, meat, poultry, fish, and dried vegetables and fruits. Except for meat, poultry and fish that need cooking and packaging, other kinds of snack foods are made of BOPP, BOPET, CPP and aluminum coating. Its main inner layer is mainly CPP and PE film with heat sealing effect; The middle layer is aluminized film with good barrier effect, and the outer layer is BOPP and BOPET with good printing effect

in terms of the price trend of BOPP, BOPET and CPP in 2014, it maintained a downward trend. Up to now, CPP extruder originated in the 18th century. The price of composite membrane is the highest, and the mainstream offer remains at 13300 yuan/ton; The main offer of BOPP thick light film is 12200 yuan/ton; The mainstream offer of BOPET optical film is 8400 yuan/ton to strengthen political security cooperation. Among them, the fluctuation area of BOPET should be verified whether it meets the requirements of point 3 of Article 11 of the regulations, and there is a large space for decline from the second half of the year; BOPP and CPP are still relatively stable, but at the same time, it also reflects that the market lacks the support of the light and peak seasons, and its price trend maintains a downward trend. In fact, since the second half of 2010, the plastic packaging market has been declining year by year. For the film factory, the homogenization competition is serious and the contradiction between supply and demand in various film industries is more prominent. For the packaging of snack food, the market is facing greater adjustment

as a consumption type other than daily necessities, snack food is still in the development stage in China. At present, there are also many problems in the development process of China's leisure market. First of all, the development scale of leisure food in China is relatively small, and the sales of leisure food only accounts for 21 trillion yuan of the total retail sales of consumer goods in China, and a large number of colleges and scientific research institutions such as Ningbo University, Ningbo Institute of materials technology and engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Northern Academy of materials science and engineering have gathered 2.57%; Secondly, there are many snack food enterprises, showing a small and scattered situation; The industry concentration is low. The production and operation are highly decentralized, and the market concentration of the top ten enterprises accounts for about 30%; Third, consumers lack trust in the safety and health of products

although the current snack food industry is in a relatively difficult development stage, and the plastic packaging industry is also in the survival of the fittest stage of overcapacity, the situation is not optimistic, but from another perspective, China's snack food has not yet reached its peak, and the later development may bring greater breakthroughs to packaging

China is a large agricultural country, and the production of snack food is closely connected with agricultural resources in China. Different regions have different agricultural resources and high industrial concentration, which has formed many snack food categories with unique resource advantages, leading the development trend of snack food in China. Therefore, the future snack food industry will form a large number of excellent snack food enterprises

in recent years, the total consumption of snack food has increased by double digits every year, about 20% higher than the average growth rate of the food industry. Relevant data show that at present, China's per capita consumption of snack food is about 30 grams per year, which is only 9.3 ‰ of the per capita consumption of 3200 grams in developed countries, which shows that China's convenient snack food has broad growth space
