Companies in the rigid packaging market rely on constant innovation to drive sustainability; Global market valuation to reach US $ 755 billion by 2024: TMR study


– Countries focus on increasing recycling rates for rigid plastic and glass packaging materials; Europe at the forefront to achieve recycling targets

– Environmental sustainability makes the demand for rigid packaging competitive with respect to the flexible packaging format; Asia Pacific emerge as a substantially lucrative market with massive investments in rigid packaging solutions

ALBANY, NY, September 24, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Sustainability has become a key quotient in assessing the benefits of packaging among end-use industries, and the constant attention to adopting environmentally friendly packaging materials has propelled the outlook for the rigid packaging market. Rigid packaging solutions, especially plastics, are considered to be robust packaging to meet a wide range of needs in the food, pharmaceutical, chemical and healthcare industries.

Rising spending on consumer packaged goods is a key trend that strengthens the outlook for the rigid packaging market. They have gained preference over many flexible packaging solutions due to their better protective capabilities and recyclability. For example, glass and plastic packaging used for F&B products is highly recyclable. The increasing adoption of biodegradable materials further increases the sustainability quotient. The global rigid packaging market is expected to reach a valuation of $ 755 billion by 2024.

Advances in production technologies, along with initiatives by governments and industry players to strengthen plastics recycling infrastructure, have enabled manufacturers to increasingly adopt recyclable materials. A notable example is the revision of the Directive on packaging and packaging waste by Europe which aims to improve recycling targets for glass packaging by 2030.

Key Findings from the Rigid Packaging Market Research

  • Superior protection capacity and ease of recycling to propel popularity, cans and containers to increase demand: In recent decades, young consumers have become increasingly aware of the carbon footprint of the packaging that accompanies the products they buy. The shopping trend has favored the choice of brands to actively promote the use of recyclable materials in their packaging, thus propelling the demand for glass and plastic packaging. The rigid packaging also offers robust protection against puncture, compression and the penetration of foreign materials during the supply chain and logistics.
    Personal care and food manufacturers are leveraging the sustainability quotient as a key fulcrum to innovate the packaging solutions they adopt. This has significantly broadened the horizon for packaging companies, notes the TMR study on the rigid packaging market. However, rigid packaging materials face stiff competition from the widespread use of flexible packaging for some companies in major end-use industries. Nevertheless, there is an inadequate recycling infrastructure for flexible packaging materials, which has benefited players in the rigid packaging market.
  • Stakeholders are working together to increase recycling rates: In recent years, developed countries, particularly in Europe and Asia Pacific, recyclers, raw material suppliers, packaging companies, companies in end-use industries and distributors all collaborate to improve the quantity as well as the quality of recycled materials used in various rigid packaging solutions. Cans and containers made from largely recycled plastics are likely to gain traction due to their high environmentally friendly quality. In addition, their requirements have gained popularity due to their versatility of use for packaging a wide range of products. All these factors are boosting the revenue potential of the rigid packaging market.
