The global rigid plastic packaging market has witnessed steady growth due to rapid urbanization, rising plastic production, technology developments driving smart rigid packaging, and increased application in end-use industries such as food & beverage and pharmaceuticals.

The market is expected to reach US$166.63 billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 5.2% between 2017 and 2022, according to a study by Frost & Sullivan.

To tackle the issue of food safety, food & beverage manufacturers are developing efficient smart packaging systems that will ensure safe food supply and long-term storage, thereby extending a product’s shelf life, said Prateeksha Kaul, Research Analyst, Visionary Science, Frost & Sullivan.

Meanwhile, game-changing technologies are being developed, such as inert barrier, which eliminates numerous manufacturing processes, equating to reduced cost and waste, and making the manufacturing process more eco-friendly.

To gain a competitive advantage in a fragmented market, players are recommended to emulate market leaders by establishing an effective and innovative rigid plastic packaging product portfolio and partnering with or acquiring other companies to expand their customer base and strengthen their market position.

These strategies will drive new growth opportunities and attract customers that are focused on higher durability and environmental sustainability. Further imperatives for success and growth include:

  • Customizing ridged plastic packaging to end-user specifications such as prolonged shelf life and easy to cut, open and eat
  • Expanding operations to the Asia-Pacific region, which has high-growth prospects for pharmaceuticals due to increasing healthcare expenditure
  • Focusing on high-growth sectors such as food & beverage by providing efficient products as there is extensive food loss during transportation
  • Offering better ridge plastic products at lower costs in developing, economically weak countries to boost revenue growth

The market is also affected by the presence of competitive packaging options, such as flexible plastic packaging. To mitigate these risks, players will need to develop innovative packaging that conforms to current recycling and re-usability regulations but also to increasingly stringent future environment regulations.
