Market Opportunities

  • awareness regarding waterborne diseases
  • introduction of innovative solutions

Market Definition

Plastics are used to package goods such as food, beverages, oil, and other liquids. Plastics are widely used due to their high performance, low cost, and long durability. Plastics can be of various grades and material combinations depending on the type of material being moved, such as polyethylene, polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride, among others.

Plastic Packaging Market Dynamics

This section deals with understanding the market drivers, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:

Drivers

  • Advantages of Plastic Packaging

The high demand for handy products has increased as a result of busy lifestyles, resulting in an increase in demand for flexible packs. Flexible plastic packaging uses fewer resources and energy to package; as a result, flexible packs are less expensive and take up 35% less retail shelf space, making them more cost-effective than other types of packaging. Plastic packaging decreases product waste while also extending shelf life. For example, bananas wrapped in flexible plastic packaging ripen more slowly, extending shelf life. This sort of packing can be done with the least amount of packaging feasible, reducing warehousing and transportation costs while preserving or improving product protection.

Furthermore, factors such as the low cost and excellent printability associated with plastic will further propel the growth rate of plastic packaging market. Additionally, the high consumer income coupled with the acceleration in e-commerce activities, especially in emerging economies, are other market growth determinants projected to bolster the market's growth.

Opportunities

  • Innovations and Awareness

The introduction of innovative solutions, such as active packaging, modified atmosphere, edible, and bioplastic packaging extend profitable opportunities to the market players in the forecast period of 2022 to 2029. Additionally, the awareness regarding waterborne diseases will further expand the future growth of the plastic packaging market.

Restraints/Challenges

  • Surge in Demand for Alternative Packaging

Alternative packaging materials that are more environmentally friendly are becoming increasingly popular among consumers. Aluminum and glass have high acceptance rates due to their environmentally beneficial nature and high recyclability. As a result, people are becoming increasingly wary of plastic. Furthermore, increased consumer knowledge of excellent health and bio-based packaging materials is encouraging people to use biodegradable materials instead of plastic. This is projected to limit the global plastic packaging market's growth during the forecast period.

  • Poor Infrastructure and Recycling Facilities

Plastic packaging waste recycling is a complex process that necessitates cutting-edge infrastructure. It's a time-consuming procedure that necessitates staff knowledge. However, some portions of the world lack recycling facilities. Even in wealthy countries like the United States, the problem of inadequate recycling infrastructure exists. Due to a shortage of recycling facilities, more than USD 11 billion in recyclable containers are thrown away each year in the United States alone. The United Nations Environment Programme estimates that the world creates 330 million tonnes of plastic waste per year. Only 9% of all plastic garbage produced has been recycled to date, and only 14% is currently collected for recycling. Because most recycling facilities are old, they are unable to cope with changes in waste sources. Even if the amount of paper trash has decreased and the amount of plastic waste has increased, present gear is ill-equipped to handle such shifts in packaging waste trends. As a result, this factor will challenge the plastic packaging market growth rate.

COVID-19 Impact on Plastic Packaging Market

The recent outbreak of coronavirus had a negative impact on the plastic packaging market. The main cause for this is the shutting down of production units brought in by the government's imposition of lockdowns in various countries. Because of the fear of a lockdown, individuals are restoring objects and, as a result, are panic-buying and stockpiling vital goods and deliverables in large quantities. Online portals are used to place bulk orders for everything from staple foods to fresh foods. The distribution of the same is handled by a variety of sources and is packaged in plastic. Governments are taking large-scale initiatives to ensure a smooth flow of products between various locations within and outside of their countries.

On the brighter side, the demand for plastic packaging is increasing in the pharmaceutical business, and it is predicted to continue to grow among various pharmaceuticals, hospitals, and PPE kit producers. The need for plastic packaging is on the rise as a result of the COVID 19 healthcare crisis. There is also a demand for domestic supplies, healthcare, medical goods, and retail distribution of these items. The market is predicted to increase at a growing rate by the conclusion of the global forecast in 2022, thanks to the adoption of online delivery platforms.

However, based on current market trends, the industry is expected to see increasing demand for packaging of products during the pandemic across various industries such as pharmaceutical, food, and beverage applications.

Recent Development

  • In February 2020, Amcor became a member of the Healthcare Plastics Recycling Council (HPRC), a group of peers from the healthcare, recycling, and waste management industries. The business will assist the alliance with its expertise in package design for medical devices and applications in hospitals and other treatment settings. From packaging design to collection methods and end markets, the industry group intends to address all aspects of the packaging value chain.
  • In March 2020, Berry Global Group, Inc. announced a USD 30 million investment to expand its ultra-high performance stretch film production capacity. In nine of the company's North American locations that now make stretch films, the funds will be used to add new lines and upgrade existing assets.
