By Material Analysis

The plastic segment held the market in 2020 with a revenue share of over 45%. On the basis of material, the market has been divided into plastic, metal, glass, and others. Plastic is the most extensively used material in the packaging market owing to its several advantages over other alternatives. Plastic is lighter than other materials and is incredibly energy efficient to manufacture. Moreover, it is quite inexpensive compared to other materials, such as metals and glass.

According to the American Chemistry Council, just two pounds of plastic resins are required to package 10 gallons of drinks. Whereas, eight pounds of steel, three pounds of aluminum, and approximately forty pounds of glass are required to deliver the same quantity of drink. Various types of plastic resins, such as HDPE, LDPE, PET, PP, and polystyrene, are used to make plastic containers.

The bottles & jars product segment held the market in 2020 with a revenue share of over 29%. Bottles and jars are the most widely used products in the rigid food packaging segment. Various types of foods, such as jam, honey, sauces, cheese, mayonnaise, spices, oil, spreads, syrups, processed vegetables/fruits, fish, and meat, are packed in various types of jars and bottles made of glass and plastics.

The cans product segment is estimated to register the highest CAGR of more than 4.5% from 2021 to 2030 due to the rising demand for various canned foods and beverages. The cups and tubs segment is also expected to register a significant CAGR over the forecast period.

By Regional Analysis

Asia Pacific held the global market in 2020 accounting for a revenue share of over 37% and is estimated to be the fastest-growing regional marker from 2021 to 2030. This can be credited to the rapidly growing food processing industry in the region due to strong government support. The countries, such as India, China, and Japan, are the major contributors to the growth of the APAC regional market.

North America is projected to grow at a steady CAGR of 3.05% over the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for packaged and convenience foods among the working population.
