Rigid Plastic Packaging Market Size, Share & Growth (2021 - 2026)

The global Rigid Plastic Packaging Market was valued at $ 202.83 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $ 262.68 billion by 2026, with a CAGR of 8.61%. The base year considered for the study is 2020, and the market size is forecast from 2021 to 2026.

The growing demand for polypropylene from the packaging industry is estimated to drive the market demand during the forecast period. Superior barrier properties, high tensile strength, better surface finish, and low cost make polypropylene ideal for many packaging applications. Polypropylene films have exceptional optical clarity, and low moisture/vapor transmission makes them suitable for use in food packaging. In addition, polypropylene is blow molded to make bottles, cans, and jars. Thin-walled polypropylene containers are typically used for food packaging. In addition, PP has wide application in the manufacture of medicine bottles, bottle caps and closures, and jars for tomato sauce and syrup. According to a report by the PlastIndia Foundation, India has a manufacturing capacity of 4,870 kilotons per year (KTA) of polypropylene (PP). According to IBEF, India is advancing in terms of plastics industries with 35,000 plastics processing units, and around 5 million people are employed in these industries.

 Rigid Plastic Packaging Market Drivers 

The increasing demand for biodegradable rigid plastic packaging is expected to drive market growth in the future. In addition, people who turn to drinks and other household cleaning products are positively impacting the rigid plastic packaging market. In addition, the rapid increase in urbanization is also contributing to the growth of the market. In addition, the increase in the disposable income of individuals will have a positive impact on the growth of the market in the near future. The growing demand for rigid plastic packaging from the healthcare industry is also one of the critical factors that will trigger market growth in recent years. Rigid plastic helps healthcare companies protect drugs from contamination. The packaging of the medical product must comply with international regulatory safety standards.

Therefore, the properties of rigid plastic and its durability, lightness, cleanliness, and transparency make it the ideal choice for the storage of medical products. Improving packaging recycling rates are driving the growth of the global rigid plastic packaging market. Recycling reduces the consumption of raw materials, which reduces water and air pollution. Therefore, it helps to reduce greenhouse gases. Rising global consumption of consumer goods is fueling demand for rigid plastic packaging. The consumer-packaged goods (CPG) industry has experienced significant growth over the past quarter-century, which has been largely driven by market development due to growth in consumer spending.

Rigid Plastic Packaging Market Restraints

Strong competition for advanced rigid plastic packaging may hamper the growth of the market to some extent. Furthermore, the increased use of bisphenolA (BPA) in the manufacture of plastic products is also presented as a major constraint for the general rigid plastic packaging market. The increasing transition of end-users to flexible packaging and uncertain raw material prices are hampering the growth of the rigid plastic packaging market.

Opportunities in the Rigid Plastic Packaging Market

The increase in online sales globally offers lucrative growth opportunities for market players. This e-commerce boom offers enormous potential for future growth in global retail, which in turn is accelerating the growth of the market.

Challenges in the Rigid Plastic Packaging Market

The high cost of initial setup is a major challenge while fluctuating demand and advancements in alternative technologies are expected to be the burning issues in the market. Recycling and environmental concerns are also a challenge for rigid plastic packaging manufacturers.
