World Rigid Packaging

As Quoted In Packaging Europe

Growth in global manufacturing output and greater spending on packaged goods worldwide (particularly food and beverages in the Asia/Pacific region) will aid rigid packaging demand.

World demand to increase 6.4% yearly through 2016

World demand for rigid packaging is forecast to increase 6.4 percent per year to $472 billion in 2016. Factors contributing to rising demand include growth in global manufacturing output, increased consumer spending on packaged goods worldwide, and demographic trends such as increasing urban populations, as urban consumers tend to use more packaged foods than their rural counterparts. Rigid packaging consumption will also be supported by the extensive and expanding recycling infrastructure for metal, glass, and plastic.

The largest markets for rigid packaging are food and beverages, which together represented 64 percent of total rigid packaging demand in 2011. Strong gains are expected for plastic bottles and containers due to cost and performance advantages, as well as further development of food-grade materials. Beverage applications for rigid packaging will benefit from expanded processing capacity. Rigid packaging demand in pharmaceutical applications is forecast to see above average growth, boosted by fast growing pharmaceutical manufacturing capabilities, especially in Asia.

Food & beverage market to benefit Asia/Pacific region

The most rapid gains in demand for rigid packaging will be seen in the world’s developing regions. In particular, the Asia/ Pacific region will post the fastest growth and remain the largest market due to its large food and beverage industries. In contrast, market maturity in developed countries (as well as market saturation in bedrock applications such as bottled and canned beers and carbonated soft drinks) will serve to limit faster gains in rigid packaging demand. Overall, some of the best growth rates are expected in Indonesia, China, and India, with Brazil, Turkey, Russia, and Mexico also forecast to see strong gains.

Plastic to remain dominant, fastest-growing material

In terms of materials, plastic will continue to account for the largest share of demand and will also see the fastest gains, as plastic containers grab market share at the expense of paperboard, metal, and glass packaging in many applications. Gains for plastic containers will be attributable to their cost advantages over some alternatives, shatter resistance, resealability, graphics capabilities, ease of opening and dispensing, and improved resin and processing technologies.

Still, metal cans will remain an important segment of the rigid packaging mix due to their durability, long shelf life, tamper resistance, ease of storage, recyclability, and the economic advantages of canned items in controlling food expenditures, as metal cans are often used to package low-price food items. Opportunities for paperboard rigid packaging will reflect a competitive price structure, suitability for high quality graphics, and a favorable environmental profile. On the other hand, the heavier weight of glass containers and their risk of breakage will continue to limit applications -- especially in export markets -- due to high shipping costs.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $345 billion world rigid container industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by container material (plastic, metal, paperboard, glass), market (e.g., food, beverages, pharmaceuticals, durable goods), world region and for 19 major countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 44 industry competitors, including Tetra Pak International, Ball and Rexam.
