London, 04 August 2015: Technavio, the independent tech-focused global research firm, has published a report on the stand-up pouches market in APAC 2015-2019, which is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.56% during the forecast period of 2014-2019.

The stand-up pouches market in APAC is expected to grow rapidly driven by increased demand from non-food manufacturers for packaging for cosmetics, household products, and agricultural products. Manufacturers and consumers prefer stand-up pouches, as they are easily portable, lightweight, and cost less to transport. Also, the introduction of new features, such as spouts and fitments, zip seal closures, and pour spouts, and an increase in the adoption of stand-up pouches among alcoholic beverage manufacturers, will increase sales of stand-up pouches in the APAC market.
