Rigid plastic packaging refers to the utilisation of plastic materials, such as polypropylene (PP), highly-density polyethylene (HDPE), and polyethylene (PET), for packaging new bottles and containers. It is often sturdier, heavier and stronger than flexible packaging, due to which it is used for wrapping fragile food products that need enhanced protection. These products include recyclable plastic containers with open tops and separate closures, lids, or covers that are generally viewed as nestable food containers.

The market is majorly driven by the escalating demand for bottles, jars, containers, and bags for the packaging of food and beverages. This can be attributed to the significant growth in the food and beverage (F&B) industry across the globe. In line with this, the augmenting consumption of packaged goods, coupled with the flourishing e-commerce industry, is providing an impetus to the market.


The augmenting adoption of rigid plastic packaging for the protection of medicines from contamination is resulting in a higher product uptake in the healthcare sector. Also, the rising consumer awareness regarding biodegradable rigid plastic packaging is acting as a significant growth-inducing factor for the market.


Additionally, continual technological advancements in the automotive industry are creating a positive market outlook. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include stringent government regulations regarding product safety standards, expanding construction activities on the global level, rapid urbanization and industrialization, inflating disposable incomes of the masses, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities.
