In terms of volume, the market was valued at 1,56,448 Mn units in 2021 and is projecting a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period. The growth in revenue is attributed to flexible packaging options offered by spout pouches to pack liquid, non-liquid, powdered or granular products. Due to the flexible packaging solutions in spout pouches, products take up less space during dispensing, thereby, eliminating the empty air occupied by a rigid package. However, plastic packaging for spout pouches is hazardous to environment as they lead to increased waste, landfills, marine pollution leading to death of aquatic animals.
