Innovations to Foster Sustainable Packaging to Influence Plastic Containers Demand: Fact.MR

Burgeoning plastic pollution concerns across developing and developed economies are spurring manufacturers to investigate sustainable packaging solutions, thus prompting major breakthroughs.

ROCKVILLE, MD / ACCESSWIRE / January 21, 2021 / Award winning market research company Fact.MR has recently published the global plastic containers market report. According to its findings, the market is poised to grow at over 5% Y-o-Y growth in 2021, representing a marginal increase over 2020. Growth prospects for the next ten years appear largely positive, experiencing a noteworthy CAGR.

According to Fact.MR, extensive research and development to foster innovations in the global packaging landscape have widened the berth for plastic containers. For instance, manufacturers are exploring the applicability of the ideonella sakaiensis bacterium, discovered in 2005, which feeds on PET films with a thickness of 0.2 millimeters over a span of one month, in potential end-use industries, expected to fulfill major sustainable criteria.

Furthermore, massive revenue ecosystems are anticipated across the cosmetics industry, with Fact.MR projecting it to reach US$ 58 Bn by 2021-end. Players such as Lush Cosmetics have been incorporating the postconsumer polypropylene (PCR-PP) packaging for their Black Pot packages, manufactured from KWR621FDA and KWR621FDA-20 resins. Manufacturers are increasingly targeting high-growth regions across the East Asian market, attributed to a flourishing cosmetics industry, thus yielding major growth opportunities for the plastic containers market.

"Manufacturers are deepening their presence across the emerging markets of the Asia Pacific region, attributed to heightened demand for instant foods & beverages in countries such as China & India, which are characterized by exponentially rising population bases," remarks the Fact.MR analyst.
