Indonesia Plastic Packaging Market Analysis

The Indonesian plastic packaging market is expected to register a CAGR of 2.5% over the forecast period. Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, food and beverage companies are developing response actions and effective plans to help mitigate their risk and prepare for how they would deal with the effects of the coronavirus. These plans include establishing an interdisciplinary crisis response team of personnel from all aspects of the business to identify, assess, and manage the risk presented.

  • The increasing technological advancements and end-user industry packaging applications are the significant factors driving the growth of the market studied. In most of Indonesia, the population is growing, and the use of packaging per person is increasing. It is also growing due to consumer behavior trends, such as the growth in the use of convenience products and the increasing use of plastic as a substitute for other packaging materials.
  • Plastic packaging has implemented new ways for the functioning of the packaging industry. Packaging solutions that are durable, lightweight, and comfortable have augmented the use of plastics as a packaging material across the region.
  • The price of LDPE packaging is currently low in the region, which means that there will be minimal impact on the sellers from the additional cost of using the material. The demand for surgical masks, which are made of materials such as polypropylene, polyisoprene, and polyurethane, has also increased.
  • Plastic pollution has become a global problem. Several types of research have stated plastic's adverse effects on the environment. Owing to this, Indonesia also implemented regulations to reduce the use of plastics. The Indonesian plastic packaging market is facing serious concerns due to the plastic resin price rise. This is leading to increased lags in recovering higher costs of resin and reduced profitability among established local players.
  • Additionally, to fund a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Indonesian government introduced a fiscal stimulus package worth trillions of rupiah and increased its state budget deficit above the 3% legal limit. The country's current flexible packaging market players are anticipated to benefit from this. However, breaking even for newcomers may provide unheard-of difficulties. There is also the impact of the Russia-Ukraine war on the overall packaging ecosystem.

Indonesia Plastic Packaging Industry Segmentation

Plastic packaging is a part of the multi-faceted system for providing products from the point of manufacture to the point of consumption. Its principal purpose is to guard and ensure the safe and secure delivery of the product to the end user. Its role in a circular economy is to sustain the value of a product for as long as required and to help remove product waste. The Indonesian plastic packaging market is tracked based on consumption in the domestic market and is segmented by packaging type (rigid plastic packaging and flexible plastic packaging), by end-user vertical (food, beverage, healthcare, personal care and household, and other end-user verticals), and by product type (bottles and jars, pouches and bags, trays and containers, films and wraps, and other product types). The market sizes and forecasts are provided in terms of value (USD million) for all the above segments.

Indonesia Plastic Packaging Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Indonesia Plastic Packaging Market according to our research experts:

Skincare Segment is Observing Significant Growth

  • Skincare packaging uses a variety of plastic cosmetic jars to suit various packaging needs. The need for packaging for skincare products is on the rise in Indonesia. Various skincare brands in the region are facing increased competition, and packaging suppliers are offering various brands to differentiate designs with ease of use, convenience, and advanced capabilities.
  • Plastic is a prominent material in skincare packaging due to its low cost, lightweight, flexibility, durability, and other factors. Additionally, it is odorless and offers a pleasant appearance. For personal care products, plastics are a material of choice for manufacturing shatterproof and "no-spill" bottles, jars, tubes, caps, and closures.​
  • Newer filling technologies and the development of heat-resistant PET bottles opened up new possibilities and options in the market. While PET bottles are common in multiple segments, beverages, sanitary products, cosmetics, and detergents are predominantly sold in bottles that are made up of polyethylene (PE).
  • Supermarkets had been the primary distribution method for the Indonesian cosmetic sector before the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. However, the pandemic has caused the distribution of cosmetics to move from brick-and-mortar businesses to online marketplaces. Given that customers appear to prefer the ease of having goods brought to their front door via delivery services like Gojek Instant Service, this trend is predicted to continue.
  • Some brands are choosing to reduce their consumption of single-use plastic by using post-consumer recycled PET, following the suit of other industries. Aveda, for instance, is now using 100% post-consumer recycled PET in 85% of its skin care and hair styling PET bottles and jars, as well as using bioplastic from sugarcane.

Increase in Adoption of Lightweight Packaging

  • The lightweight property of the material has been driving the growth of plastic in Indonesia. Glass is much heavier than plastic, which means more trips are required while transporting. This translates to a more significant environmental impact. Glass is also much heavier for the end consumer, whereas plastic is lightweight and easier to carry.
  • The demand for aluminum beverage cans is also significant. The average weight of an empty aluminum can is 14.9 grams. Though these materials are light in weight, the probability of beverage cans being damaged during transportation is high compared to plastic bottles. Therefore, the lightweight property of plastic has driven its adoption in the manufacturing of bottles and containers.
  • Moreover, out of all the types of plastic, it is anticipated that using PET will help in manufacturing the lightest bottle and containers. According to PETRA, PET is a clear, strong, and lightweight plastic that is widely used for packaging food and beverages, especially convenience-sized soft drinks, juices, and water.
  • Oji Holdings Corporation and PT Purinusa Ekapersada, an Asia Pulp & Paper company, decided to form a USD 35 million joint venture to build a new converting factory in Indonesia. The new company, PT Oji Sinar Mas Packaging, would manufacture corrugated cardboard and containers to suit Indonesia's expanding domestic demand.
