Rigid plastics packaging is a type of packaging technique that involves the usage of plastic material. The material which exhibits no elastic deformation and perfect plastic deformation is known as rigid plastic material. Rigid plastic packaging comprises of cups, closures, cans, pots, and many others. Durability, cost, longevity, absorption of flavors, and lightweight are some of the benefits offered by rigid plastic packaging.

Rigid Plastic Packaging Market: Drivers &restraint

Market Driver:

  • Growing Demand for Processed and Convenience Food & Beverages

Rise in disposable income owing to growth in the economy especially in emerging countries such as China and India has expected to increase the demand for convenience and processed food & beverages. The increasing working population has attributed a higher demand for processed food in developing nation and higher consumption of convenience food. Furthermore, COVID-19 pandemic is another driving factor for changing the lifestyle of consumers towards consuming convenience foods because most nations are forced to restrict movement and lockdown their borders. Thus, growing demand for processed and convenience food & beverages has expected to drive the growth of rigid plastic packaging during the forecasted period.

Market Restraint:

  • Stringent Government Regulation

Stringent regulation has been imposed by the various federal government to regulate food, drugs, and cosmetic packaging to preserve consumer safety and confidence. For instance, the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act of 1938 aimed to protect consumers from unsafe deceptively labeled or packaged products. Moreover, various regulatory programs introduced by states and local jurisdictions to reduce the use and disposal of certain packaging material, and mandate minimum recycling requirement. For instance, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s (FDA), “Points to Consider for the Use of Recycled Plastics in Food Packaging: Chemistry Considerations”, which states the use of recycled polymers is permissible if it is of a type previously permitted for food-contact, has been kept free of contaminates during the recycling process, and the recycled material has been tested to establish suitable purity for reuse in food packaging. Thus, stringent regulations imposed by the federal government to regulate food, drugs, and cosmetic packaging has expected to hinder the growth of the market during the forecasted period.
