The global packaging resins market is projected to witness growth at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.7% over the forecast period of 2022-2030.


Packaging resins refer to resins made from synthetic plastic resin material. They are produced when large hydrocarbon molecules are heated up to a temperature where they break into smaller particles. These resins are light-weighted, energy-efficient, safe, cost-effective, non-corrosive, highly durable & flexible, and possess suitable characteristics for a wide variety of packaging solutions. These resins provide improved safety to the stored products and enhance their shelf life. As a result, they find application in sectors including healthcare, consumer goods, food & beverage, industrial, and others. Packaging resins include polyvinyl chloride, propylene, high-density polyethylene, low-density polyethylene, polyethylene terephthalate, polystyrene & expanded polystyrene, and others.



Packaging resins are used for manufacturing medication packaging like syringes, labels, accessories, inhalers, medicine vials, ampoules, blister packs, pouches for drugs, and others as they protect the products against contamination & bacteria, moisture, oxygen and odor, and water vapor transmission. The demand for medical packaging is poised to grow tremendously owing to the burgeoning need for medication and the rise in chronic, infectious, and deficiency diseases across the globe. The expansion of the pharmaceutical industry is therefore expected to aid in the growth of the global packaging resins market in the next few years.


Additionally, plastics are estimated to generate over 200.0 million tonnes of garbage, which leads to enormous landfill difficulties. Product manufacturers in the packaging industry are focusing on developing unique packaging methods and materials, including bioplastics packaging. Bioplastics are manufactured from sustainable sources, such as vegetable oils, agricultural by-products, corn starch, and woodchips. They aid in reducing carbon footprint and eliminate the need for landfill dumping, thus resulting in high demand. The rising demand for bioplastic and the increasing developments by manufacturers are anticipated to boost the overall growth of the global packaging resins market.


Furthermore, other factors such as the rising preference for convenient packaging, growing demand for packaged & ready-to-eat food, fast-paced growth of the e-commerce industry worldwide, the proliferating demand for sustainable packaging solutions across the globe, surging awareness regarding the benefits of packaging resins, the escalating expenditure for R&D activities, and growing industrialization worldwide are among other factors driving the growth of the global packaging resins market.


On the other hand, the presence of stringent regulations imposed on plastics due to the landfill issue, the concerns regarding the environmental impact of employing plastic materials, the high cost associated with R&D activities, and the high scale availability of alternatives are factors projected to act as major hindrances to the growth of the global packaging resins market during the forecast period.
