Modified Atmospheric Packaging Market Segmentation

The global modified atmospheric packaging market segmentation comprises of application, gases, materials, and region. The application-based segmentation covers bakery & confectionary, convenience food, dairy products, fruits & vegetables, and others. Bakery & confectionery segment holds the largest share in the market as confectionery items are perishable items they require packaging that can increase their shelf life.
