Plastic packaging is becoming popular among consumers over other products as a plastic package is light in weight and is easier to handle. Similarly, even the major manufacturers prefer to use plastic packaging solutions, owing to their lower cost of production.
- Moreover, the introduction of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) polymers are expanding the plastic bottling applications. The market is witnessing an increasing demand for PET bottles in the bottled and soft water markets.
- There is a wide variety of innovative, cost-effective, sustainable packaging solutions emerging in the market, and plastic, as a product, is accepted globally. It has led to the leading players, like Amcor, introducing new plastic product formats to cater to the demand for bottles.
- Manufacturers prefer PET over other plastic packaging products, as it has a minimum loss of raw material during the manufacturing process when compared to other plastic products. Its recyclability and the feature to add multiple colors and designs augment it to become a preferred choice. Refillable products have emerged with the rising consumer awareness for the environment and have acted in creating demand for the product.
- Moreover, Colgate-Palmolive, a prominent consumer products company, based in New York, committed to 100% recyclability of packaging across all its product categories by 2025 and achieving a 25% recycled content currently from plastic packaging. L'Oréal, a cosmetics brand, is working toward ensuring that all its plastic packaging will be rechargeable, refillable, recyclable, or compostable, by 2025.
- With the COVID-19 outbreak affecting the market, countries, globally, seem to be shifting toward single-use plastics. Supply chains, additionally, are being strained to meet a surge in demand for single-use plastic packaging and medical supplies. Multiple governments, such as in India, the Tamil Nadu government suspended the ban on single-use plastic bottles and bags in retail trade in the wake of the COVID-19 disruption.
