This market research study presents a detailed segmentation of the global recycled materials packaging market by type of materials (paper and paperboard, metal, glass, and plastic), by end users (food industry, beverages industry, healthcare industry, personal care industry, and others), and by geography (APAC, Europe, North America, and ROW). Leading vendors in the market are Amcor, Graham, International Paper, Mondi, and Tetra Laval.

Outlook of the recyclable packaging materials market

Extensive research carried out by the analysts at Technavio has shown that the global recyclable packaging materials market will witness impressive growth and will post a CAGR of more than 7% over the forecast period. The overall growth in the organized retail sector, especially the increasing number of hypermarkets and supermarkets, is one of the primary factors driving the growth of this market globally. Most retail stores are more organized and use improved storage technologies than traditional retail stores. Also, emerging markets such as India and China are witnessing a steady rise in the number of such stores, which in turn will aid in the growth of this market in the coming years.

The emergence of bio-degradable plastics is one of the most significant emerging trends spurring the growth prospects for this market. Biodegradable plastics can be easily broken down by microorganisms and are less harmful and toxic for the environment, especially when compared to conventional plastics. Although they are not completely made out of recycled materials, they contain petrochemicals and biodegradable additives. The increasing adoption of materials such as polyvinyl alcohol, polyanhydrides, and polylactic acid by plastic packaging manufacturers will contribute to the growth of this market during the predicted period. Moreover, with the introduction of stringent environment compliance regulations worldwide and the increasing focus on sustainable development, the need to replace conventional plastics with biodegradable plastics will increase substantially over the next few years.
