DUBLIN, Oct. 15, 2020 /PRNewsCentre/ — The "Plastic Packaging Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Product (Bottles, Bags, Wraps & Films), by Type (Rigid, Flexible), by Application (Food & Beverages, Industrial), and Segment Forecasts, 2020 – 2027" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
The global plastic packaging market size is projected to reach USD 320.94 billion by 2027, registering a revenue-based CAGR of 4.0% over the forecast period.
The market is majorly driven by the growing demand for plastic packaging from the food and beverage and industrial packaging industry. The demand for new houses, cars, and apartments is expected to grow with the rise in the disposable incomes in countries such as U.S, India, and China.
Rapid industrialization coupled with increasing employment opportunities is expected to result in expansion of cities, particularly in emerging economies such as China, India, and the countries from South East Asia. Lack of time and increasing purchasing power of consumers has also resulted in driving the demand for packaged foods and the trend is expected to continue over the forecast period.
Moreover, well-known companies such as McCain, ConAgra, and Unilever have been developing their presence in the global market by making their products readily available in small retail stores as well as hypermarkets. These factors together are expected to drive the demand for packaged food. The positive outlook for the packaged food market is expected to have a positive impact on the demand for safe and effective plastic food packaging product demand.
One of the key drivers for the plastic packaging industry is pharmaceutical industry growth. Owing to advances in science and technology, the pharmaceutical industry has been growing at a rapid pace over the past few years especially in emerging counties such as China, India, and Brazil.
Innovation in the pharmaceutical industry is primarily driven by progress in the field of medicine. This industry acts as a key asset to the European economy as it is one of the country’s top performing high technology sectors. This in turn is expected to fuel plastic packaging demand in Europe over the forecast period. However, the pharmaceutical industry faces challenges such as additional regulatory hurdle and escalating R&D costs. These factors are expected to restrain the market which may in turn have a negative impact on the flexible packaging market over the forecast period.
