Market Challenges

  • Avian influenza, or bird flu, poses a significant challenge to the global egg tray market. This disease, which primarily affects poultry, increases in risk during bird migration. Since 2015, over 40 million birds have been lost to bird flu, with countries like China, Cambodia, Lao PDR, and Vietnam still experiencing outbreaks. When bird flu strikes, culling becomes necessary to prevent virus spread, leading to reduced egg production. This results in losses for packaging companies due to decreased egg production. The rapid spread of infections among chickens in confined spaces limits the growth of the egg tray market.
  • The egg tray market faces several challenges. Production costs are a significant concern due to the need for durable and sanitary materials. The use of plastic trays has been common, but sustainability concerns are growing. Therefore, egg producers and consumers are looking for alternative materials like paper or biodegradable plastics. Another challenge is ensuring the trays can withstand the weight and shape of eggs without crushing them. Additionally, logistics and transportation can be complex due to the fragile nature of eggs. Producers must find efficient and cost-effective ways to distribute their products. Lastly, consumer preferences for free-range or organic eggs add complexity to the market, requiring specialized trays to meet their needs.
