World Green Packaging

As Quoted In Plastics Information Europe

Advances in world green packaging demand will be driven by growth in the broader “green” movement and trends toward environmentally friendly packaging.

World demand to rise 5.7% annually through 2015

World demand for green packaging (which encompasses recycled content, reusable and degradable packaging) is projected to rise 5.7 percent per year to $212 billion in 2015. Advances will be driven by growth in the broader “green” movement and trends toward environmentally friendly packaging. While recycled content packaging will remain by far the largest product type through the forecast period and beyond, this segment will see the slowest increases due to the maturity of products such as metal cans and glass containers. On the other hand, above-average demand growth is expected in reusable and degradable packaging. In particular, demand for degradable packaging will continue to see double-digit annual growth rates.

Recycled content packaging to remain dominant

Gains in recycled content packaging will be supported by increased collection activity and processing capacity, coupled with greater use of recycled content packaging by firms seeking to demonstrate environmental responsibility and differentiate their products. Also supporting advances will be efforts by industry associations, brand owners, packaging firms and others to promote recycling initiatives in order to raise the recycling rates of different types of packaging materials. However, increases in recycled content packaging demand will be limited by the general maturity of products such as corrugated boxes and metal cans, and the existing high levels of recycled content in them.

Reusable, degradable packaging to grow fastest

Demand for reusable packaging will be boosted by an acceleration in global manufacturing activity. In particular, demand for reusable drums will benefit from an upswing in global chemical output, as chemicals comprise the leading application for these products. However, competition from larger reusable formats such as intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) will prevent faster growth in drum demand. Additionally, the relatively long service life of most reusable packaging will limit the need for purchasing replacement units, a factor that will offer source reduction and cost advantages, but will continue to hamper growth in sales of new units.

Degradable packaging will continue to see the fastest advances in demand, but will only account for approximately one percent of the overall green packaging market through 2015. Gains will be driven by greater price competitiveness with conventional packaging options, capacity expansions, increased importance of sustainability in packaging, and enhanced performance properties brought about by the use of additives, improved polymerization and new blending techniques.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $160.8 billion global green packaging industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by product (recycled content packaging, reusable packaging, degradable packaging), market, world region and for 19 major countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 47 industry players, including Georgia-Pacific, Tetra Pak International and Illinois Tool Works.
