PCR Closures Market

PCR Closures Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2021-2031

PCR Closures Market: An Overview

The increasing restrictions and regulation imposed on the consumption of plastics have led to the heightened application of post-consumer resins (PCR) in the manufacturing of plastic packaging materials. PCR material is made from the process of recycling plastic materials that have completed their life cycle and are considered as wastes. The consistent efforts of manufacturers to reduce their carbon footprint has led to incremental growth in the application of PCR in the packaging industry.

Caps and closures are an integral part of the packaging system for a wide variety of products. The introduction of PCR closures in the market has offered manufacturers an opportunity to reduce their environmental impact. The quality of the PCR closures if not greater is at par with the closures made from 100% virgin resins. These closures are often manufactured with food-grade quality as a result they are widely used in many industries like food and beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetics among others. The increasing preference of the manufacturers and consumers towards sustainable packaging solutions is anticipated to bolster the demand for the target market.

PCR Closures Market: Dynamics

The food and beverage industry is the largest market shareholder of the PCR closures market. As most of the PCR closures manufactured are of food-grade quality they are often used in the packaging of several beverage products and food items. There has been a substantial increase in the number of players offering natural or organic products in the food and beverage industry. These manufacturers prefer the packaging material that complements their advertising and marketing strategies which have resulted in elevating the demand for PCR closures.

As mentioned by the World Economic Forum, in 2020 a total of 170 nations together have pledged to significantly decrease the consumption of plastics by the year 2030. As a result, the regulations imposed by the countries on the usage of virgin plastic resins as raw material in manufacturing has seen an upward trend. This has forced many manufacturers to adapt and launch their products in combination with post-consumer resins and virgin resins or even 100% post-consumer resin content as raw materials. The PCR closures market is gaining traction in the packaging industry as they are more sustainable and their price range is neutral to the closures made from virgin materials.

Manufacturers in the plastic packaging industry are concerned about their environmental impact. The key players in the industry are consistently making efforts to reduce their carbon footprint and achieve their sustainability goals. The efforts include launching of products made for PCR content, partnering with other industry players and altering existing manufacturing practice with a sustainable approach.

For instance, in September 2020, Borealis AG and Menshen Packaging USA Inc. announced a partnership to launch a series of 10 packaging closures made from post-consumer recycled resins.

In January 2020, AptarGroup launched closures made from 100% PCR content for beauty, personal care and home care applications.

COVID-19 has resulted in slowing down growth of many end-use industries of the PCR closures like cosmetics, personal care and home care. As a result, the demand from these industries for the PCR closures was slightly hampered. But with the substantial demand generated from food and beverage and pharmaceutical industry during the pandemic has bolstered the market growth for the PCR closures and has significantly dampened the repercussions of pandemic on the target market.
