SEATTLE, May 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global plastic packaging market was valued at US$ 389.509 Bn in 2021 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.30% during the forecast period (2021-2028).

Key Trends and Analysis of the Global Plastic Packaging Market:

Demand for Single-serve consumer packaging has seen rise in recent years. Growing consumer interest in good health and well-being, as well as increased awareness of waterborne diseases, has fuelled the demand for packaged drinking water around the world. Therefore this factor is expected to fuel market growth of plastic packaging.

Due to intense competition among market, plastic packaging manufacturers are shifting their focus to novel packaging in order to attract consumer interest and provide an effective solution for the storage and transportation of food in bulk. Effective packing protects the quality of food and aids in the absorption of shock and stress during transit, thus lowering the risk of food waste. For instance, in October 2021, Mondi launches RetortPouch Recyclable for a range of food and wet pet food products. The new RetortPouch Recyclable packaging is fully recyclable, offering a solution that protects the product, provides exceptional shelf life for a mono-material solution and reduces potential food waste.
