Rigid Plastic Packaging Market: Drivers & Restraints

The rigid plastic packaging market is driven by the increasing demand from the food and beverages industry, which is one of the prominent end users of rigid plastic packaging. The eating habits of consumers globally are changing as the consumers are increasingly opting for packaged foods, which in turn is further driving growth of the market for rigid plastic packaging. However, the non-biodegradable properties of rigid plastic packaging have been observed to have a serious impact on the environment, which can pose as a restraint for growth of the rigid plastic packaging market over the forecast period. Hence, some manufacturers are using natural raw materials over synthetic materials for manufacturing of rigid plastic packaging types. This trend is expected to help counter the environmental issues related to rigid plastic packaging. Expansion of plastic recycling units is another alternative for countering the environmental restraint. On the other hand, the competition from flexible plastic packaging may have a negative impact on growth of the rigid plastic packaging market over the forecast period.
