Government Initiatives Giving Impetus

The sustainable packaging drive is garnering immense support from various governments across the world. International bodies too are supporting this initiative from the fore.

The Food and Drugs Association as well recommends recycled materials for packaging new food containers. In order to ensure contamination-free packaging, it has developed various safety guidelines and regulations. Likewise, the EU plastics tax, which has been accounted by the European Council as a part of its €750-billion coronavirus recovery fund agreement is intended to encourage the use of recycled plastic.

Under the new regulation, a tax of €0.80 per kilogram, or €800 per ton will be levied on the use of non-recycled plastic packaging waste and is slated to come into effect from January 1st, 2021. Initiatives such as these are predominantly construing shift from conventional to recycled plastic.

Stronger incentives for improved design of plastic goods to ensure easy recycling and investment in waste collection infrastructure from diverse sources are likely to give significant impetus to the market for PCR plastic packaging.

Sales in the cosmetics industry, which accounts for the leading share in the market, has taken a nose dive during the pandemic.

Consumers also are likelier to spend on essential items. Discretionary purchase is on the rise, which could hamper the growth of the market to an extent. Drop in revenue flow in the cosmetics sector will have a significant impact on PCR plastic packaging sales.
