Rigid Packaging Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth and Forecast 2015 - 2021

The growing demand for preserved food items and ready-to-cook meals in the wake of changing lifestyles has become the undercurrent for the growth of the global rigid packaging market. The substantial demand for safe, healthy, and convenience foods has been driving the market at a rapid pace in the recent years. Rigid packaging materials such as metals, plastics, glass, paperboard, and others such as pulp, wood, timber, and paper pallets are expected to be in demand as consumers continue to purchase food and beverages that come with improved shelf life and better quality. The growing urbanization and rising working class have both contributed towards a spike in the consumption of rigid packaging market. 

According to a latest report published by Transparency Market Research, the opportunity in the global rigid packaging market will be worth US$750.57 bn by 2021 as compared to US$549.71 bn in 2014. Owing to these high-impact drivers, the global market is expected to progress at a CAGR of 4.5% between 2015 and 2021. The demand from the pharmaceuticals industry will also boost the global rigid packaging market to a large extent in the forthcoming years. Features of rigid packaging materials such as low cost, flame and heat resistance, durability, and high impact strength are expected to make them crucial to the burgeoning pharmaceutical industry. 

Improving GDPs Keep Asia Pacific at the Forefront of Global Rigid Packaging Market

The Asia Pacific rigid packaging market is estimated to rise at a CAGR of 3.9% between 2015 and 2021. This regional segment will also be the key revenue generator for the global market in the coming years due to the emergence of several food and beverages industries. Strengthening GDPs of developing countries such as India and China are also anticipated to steer the regional market in the upward direction. The rising disposable incomes of consumers in countries of Asia Pacific such as Japan, Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines is also expected to propel the demand for packaged food and beverages, thereby increasing the consumption of rigid packaging materials. 

North America follows Asia Pacific in terms of market share in the global rigid packaging market. However, the food and beverages market in North America has reached saturation level, which is expected to slow down the growth rate of this regional market. To revive the demand for rigid packaging materials, vendors in the North America market must focus on mergers and acquisitions to gain entry to the new regional markets. The development of innovative packaging materials such as eco-friendly materials will help manufacturers to fuel the growth of the market. 

Demand for Packaged Food Items Propels Consumption of Rigid Packaging Materials

Food and beverages is the dominant application segment in the global rigid packaging market and is anticipated to rise at a CAGR of 4.3% between 2015 and 2021. The indispensable usage of rigid packaging materials for storing items such as bottled water, carbonated soft drinks, sports drinks, nutritional drinks, teas, juices, frozen food, and baby food is expected to keep this application segment at the forefront in the coming years as well. The introduction of various kinds of packaged food and beverage items, improving international trade, and heavy investments in developing ready-to-cook and eat meals have also contributed towards the increased consumptions of rigid packaging materials for food and beverages. 

Some of the leading players operating in the global rigid packaging market are Reynolds Group, Tetra Pak, ALPLA Werke Alwin Lehner GmbH & Co KG, Crown Holdings, and Ball Corporation. These players are expected to prioritize product innovation to differentiate themselves in the global market in the near future. Furthermore, improving product portfolio and establishing their business operations in various other geographies will also be important strategies utilized by these leading players.

The global rigid packaging market has shown steady growth during the past few years. This trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period due to increasing consumer spending on packaged goods worldwide. In addition, growth in manufacturing output and other demographic trends including rising urban population, and changing dietary habits of consuming packaged foods is expected to fuel the growth of this market over the forecast period. Rising demand for rigid packaging is also supported by the expanding and extensive recycling infrastructure available for plastics, glass, and metal. Rigid packaging helps to keep finished goods and products safe for a longer period of time to enable transportation and distribution across huge distances. It is used to package in many different forms such as aerosol containers, cups, corrugated cases, bottles, cans, aluminum bottles, ampules, and jars. Furthermore, rigid packaging has many unique properties such as high stiffness, high impact strength, and higher barrier properties. All these properties mentioned above have led to the growing demand for rigid packaging in recent years. 

 

Increasing popularity of packaging media provides a longer shelf life to finished food items and other products such as cosmetics and toiletries. Thus, it is a driving factor for the growth of global rigid packaging in the food and beverage industry. Increasing international trade that has led to a boost in investment in quality packaging is also driving the food and beverage industry. Furthermore, demand for rigid packaging increases due to growing demand for processed and convenience food products such as snacks, processed meat and fish, and cakes to prevent microbial and bacterial spoilage. Health conscious consumers opt for healthy and safe packaging of foods and beverages that helps them to keep fit and healthy. Apart from this, stringent government regulations across different countries restrain the growth of the food packaging market in different regions such as Europe and North America. Different organizations including FDA (Food and Drug Administration) have set strict safety standards to determine whether a packaging is safe enough for its intended use. Rigid packaging find its application in various sectors such as medicines; cosmetics; home appliances; industrial packaging; and durable goods such as furniture, firearms, and toys in the near future.
