The global plastic packaging market, according to the study, is gaining much demand from the rapidly expanding food and beverages industry. The present generation of consumers prefers flexible packaging more than their traditional counterparts. This in turn fuels demand from the global plastic packaging market.

However, despite such impressive growth potential, the market is likely to face a challenge from the rising cost of raw materials, which may also impede its growth in the long run.
