Sustainable Packaging Market Report – Key Takeaways:

  • Mechanically Recycled Plastics are Leading the Market

The Mechanically Recycled Plastics segment dominated the sustainable packaging market in 2022. The most popular recycling technique used worldwide is mechanical recycling, often known as traditional recycling. The fact that mechanical recycling is a straightforward, affordable process is one of its main benefits. Furthermore, this recycling process requires less energy than the manufacture of new plastics.  Mechanical recycling is anticipated to continue to be a significant component of the management of plastic waste, even as applications have gotten more demanding and more sophisticated recycling technologies are required.

  • Rising Government Regulations on Plastic Use is Poised to Increase the Sustainable Packaging Market Growth

As more people become aware of the environmental consequences of plastic waste, sustainable packaging is becoming a larger concern for both brands and customers. According to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), More than 60 countries have implemented restrictions and surcharges on plastic packaging and single-use trash. The Canadian government is assisting small and medium-sized firms in developing creative concepts and technology to provide sustainable alternative packaging and drive Canada towards zero plastic waste.

  • Impact of Oil Price on the Competitiveness of Plastic Alternatives May Hinder the Market

The price of oil and the cost of producing and recycling plastic are directly correlated. The price of crude oil influences the cost and availability of raw materials used in packaging, such as plastics, paper, and metals. Low oil prices can cut the cost of producing plastic materials, and make it less attractive to utilize recycled or other resources that are environmentally sustainable. Given the volatile nature of oil prices and the fact that humans currently live in an era where ecologically friendly products and industrial practices are becoming more common, anticipating oil prices is practically impossible.

  • Product Producers, Brands & Retailers

The market for sustainable packaging is being driven by numerous product makers, brands, and retailers who have established high standards for themselves in terms of environmental performance. Numerous big-name stores and brands have declared lofty ESG objectives during the past few years. For example, by 2025, Nestlé, PepsiCo, Unilever, and numerous other companies have promised to make all of their packaging recyclable, reusable, or compostable. To create healthier communities by 2030, CVS has committed to investing $1.5 billion in social impact projects.

Covid and Ukrainian Crisis Impact:

  • The COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant disruptions in global supply chains which has impacted the availability and cost of raw materials as well as the transportation of finished products. This has resulted in increased lead times, reduced production, and higher costs. Additionally, the pandemic has caused delays in investment in new capacity and infrastructure which could impact the long-term supply and demand dynamics in the market.
  • The Ukraine and Russia conflict led to an increase in prices and a reduction in production which further led to a shortage of sustainable packaging. Many companies have shut business in Russia; temporarily shutting down their plants in Ukraine. Additionally, the crisis in Ukraine has also led to a reduction in investments in the sustainable packaging market as companies are hesitant to invest in a region that is facing political and economic instability. This could impact the long-term supply and demand dynamics of the market.
