Companies Replace BPA with BPS for Epoxy Lining in Canned Packaging

The infant formula packaging market is largely fragmented with tier 3 local and regional players accounting for ~68% – 77% of the global market share. Hence, packaging companies are increasing their production capabilities to develop detachable tamper-evident systems. However, risks of toxic chemicals entering through food packaging are some of the barriers that manufacturers in the market for infant formula packaging need to tackle.

For instance, bisphenol (BPA) compounds are used to make epoxy lining in metal cans. As such, the revenue of cans is anticipated for aggressive growth and highest revenue among packaging formats in the market landscape. However, BPA compounds are associated with endocrine disruption and reproductive toxicity among consumers. Hence, manufacturers are now replacing BPA with Bisphenol S (BPS) for infant formula packaging. Ongoing research is being conducted to validate whether BPS is an effective replacement for BPA. On the other hand, manufacturers in the infant formula packaging market are increasing the availability of innovative packaging solutions to help companies prepare baby formula that are safe and hygienic.
