Market Drivers:

The expansion of production processes in a number of industries, including food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and construction, among others, is what is driving the demand for plastic packaging. The market's rise is being aided by the increase in end-users for packaging solutions, such as the pet-care industry's desire for plastic packaging. Sustainable packaging options that are recyclable, reusable, and kind to the environment are becoming more and more in demand. As a result, new materials and packaging options that satisfy these standards have been developed. The packaging industry's increasing need for sustainable packaging options has compelled industry participants to concentrate on creating such options.

A few additional factors supporting the expansion of the worldwide plastic packaging market include the emergence of food delivery services, rising demand for packaged food goods, and burgeoning e-commerce enterprises globally. In addition, new packaging materials with superior qualities than conventional packaging materials have been developed as a result of technical breakthroughs, such as biodegradable and compostable materials. It has been noted that technological advancements support the expansion of the plastic packaging market.

The increased emphasis on creating recycled plastic packaging across a number of industries, as well as tighter government restrictions aimed at maximizing the production and use of recycled plastic material, are other factors contributing to the growth of the plastic packaging industry. Multiple market competitors are concentrating on the development of recycled plastic packaging solutions to reduce carbon emissions in order to meet the growing customer demand for recycled plastic.

To give an example, Ecolab and TotalEnergies formed a strategic alliance in February 2023 with the aim of creating and launching recyclable plastic packaging material for high-use applications. For concentrated cleaning solutions in primary packaging, the strategic alliance seeks to develop post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic. Both businesses have concentrated on providing eco-friendly packaging solutions as part of the strategic cooperation.

Market Restraints:

It has been observed that the availability of environmentally friendly packaging alternatives such paper, metal, glass, bioplastics, and glass is limiting the growth of the plastic packaging market. The availability of the aforementioned alternatives is expanding as consumer demand for environmentally friendly packaging solutions rises. Sustainable materials are becoming more popular, which is limiting the market's growth for plastic packaging in the packaging sector. The expansion of the plastic packaging market is seen to be hampered by the fact that numerous firms and sectors are beginning to recognize the significance of sustainability in their branding and marketing initiatives. However, market participants in the plastic packaging sector are trying to get around this limitation by responding to shifting consumer demands.

COVID 19 Analysis

The packaging sector was badly disrupted by the interruption of the material supply chain caused by the COVID-19 epidemic. Plastic packaging makers worldwide have been hit by the lockdown in China, which is one of the major producers and suppliers of plastics with more than 30% of the global market share, and the closing of trade borders among the international nations. Due to the shutdown of several large industrial facilities to stop the spread of the pandemic, the supply of plastics from Chinese producers was in low supply, which widened the gap between supply and demand. But the first quarter of 2020 was when the demand-supply mismatch was most prominently seen.
