Rigid Packaging Market Growth

The rigid packaging market has a range of applications including food and beverage and cosmetics and toiletries. According to Transparency Market Research, this market has seen steady growth in its various applications over the past few years.

Let’s take a closer look at the causes for growth in the food and beverage applications in particular:

Eating Habit Changes

IFT cites the dramatic changes in lifestyle, eating patterns and demographics of today’s modern society have caused a shift in types of food and beverage habits. As the traditional family mealtime has shifted to individual meals, on-the-go snacking and kid-specific meals, packaged foods have grown in popularity.

Increased Health and Safety Consciousness

People are also becoming more health and safety conscious, opting for packaged foods and beverages that keep them fit and healthy, such as pre-packaged salads and individual shakes. They are also opting for more processed food, such as meat and fish that prevent microbial and bacterial spoilage.

International Trade

Increasing international trade has led to a surge investment in quality, safe packaging. Rigid packaging keeps products safe for a longer period of time. Additionally, it offers unique properties such a stiffness, high impact strength and higher barrier properties.
