Awareness of Sustainable Packaging Solutions Generating Revenue Streams

There is an increasing awareness in consumers about rapidly growing environmental hazards due to harmful pollutants. People are giving preference to products that are packaged with sustainable raw materials over those that are packaged with non-recyclable raw materials. This gives potential growth opportunities for manufacturers of rigid plastic packaging. Bio-based materials are being used in the packaging industry, as they are created entirely or largely from biological resources that are renewable, such as sugarcane. Bio-based packaging materials can decompose in the open air or at an industrial composites plant. Rigid plastics can be used for making various products, as these materials are extremely lightweight and contribute to energy conservation.


Increasing Adoption in Food Industry Offering Revenue Benefits for Manufacturers

Rigid plastic packaging can be increasingly used in various end-use industries for packaging purposes. The increasing adoption of sustainable and lightweight packaging material in food, pharmaceuticals, personal care & cosmetics, and consumer goods is creating value-grab opportunities for market players. Of these, the food industry is the most lucrative market for rigid plastic packaging solutions. The popularity of consuming ready-to-eat food items and frozen food is rising across the globe, thus creating beneficial opportunities for manufacturers. Increasing spending capacity, changing lifestyles, and rising need of convenience food items is driving the demand for rigid plastic packaging solutions. These lightweight packaging solutions are used for packaging of food items such as bread, poultry & seafood, ready-to-eat foods, dairy products, and packaged goods. The growing popularity of these food products in developing and underdeveloped countries is contributing to market growth.

Growth of eCommerce Industry and Food Chains to Drive Rigid Plastic Packaging Market

  • In the recent years, eCommerce and Internet commerce have experienced significant growth. Safe packing solutions are used to transport items and offerings from one region of the world to another.
  • Due to the necessity for a high barrier packaging solution that keeps commodities safe from any sort of adulteration during transit, rigid plastic packaging has seen an exponential increase in demand
  • International food chains are also driving the demand for hard packaging solutions such as bio-based polymers and synthetic polymers to help them expand into previously unexplored markets. It has a favorable impact on the worldwide rigid plastic packaging market's overall growth.
  • Innovative rigid packaging solutions are being used by manufacturers and end users to access developing markets. To compete in the market, many end users in fast-growing regions are forced to upgrade from antiquated rigid packaging solutions to the most up-to-date rigid packaging solutions.
  • High grade plastic-based products employed for rigid packaging are eco-friendly and bio-degradable. Such products can be landfilled, composted, or recycled without harming the environment.
  • Plastic-based products for rigid packaging can be reused many times, making them a sustainable form of packaging and on the contrast, most flexible forms of packaging are not eco-friendly and cannot be reused
  • Recycling of plastic-based products is common while recycling of flexible packaging products is not feasible due to its differential layers. More than 2.5 billion lbs. of plastic bottles of PET and HDPE plastic are collected each year. This reduces greenhouse gas emission comparable to taking 360,000 cars off road and saves energy cost equivalent to the annual energy consumption of 750,000 U.S. homes.
