Bottled Water Packaging Market Trends

  • The growing number of chronic problems caused by polluted water fueled market growth.

The increasing number of chronic illnesses caused by dirty water is driving the market CAGR for bottled water packaging. Chronic sickness is common all throughout the world. Chronic illnesses are responsible for around 70% of all fatalities worldwide. Water contamination is a major contributor to the rise in chronic diseases. Water pollution causes cholera, typhoid, diarrhoea, and hepatitis A. Every year, the United States suffers from 2500- 3000 cases of hepatitis A. In contrast, 15-20 million typhoid cases are reported each year, with many of them attributed to polluted water. As a result, as people become more health-conscious, the overall demand for purified water is increasing. Furthermore, the health benefits of flavoured bottled water, which contains vitamins A, C, and E, as well as the increased taste, attract customers. Water is packaged in bottles, jugs, and cartons to protect it from contamination and make it easy to transport and store.

Moreover, plastics are the most commonly used materials in the production of water bottles. They account for 97.3% of the  bottled packaging market, with glass accounting for the remainder. Plastic containers are a low-cost, lightweight, and long-lasting container material. The most popular type of plastic is polythene terephthalate (PET), which is also 100% recyclable. In addition, Customers are increasingly prioritising their health and wellness, which is increasing demand for bottled purified and ultra-purified solutions. Because these bottles offer a healthier alternative to high-calorie, sugary, carbonated beverages such as sports drinks and juices, consumers chose them when on the go. Bottled water sales climbed by 4.7% in 2020, according to the Beverage Industry in September 2021.

According to the National Association of Container Distributors, consumer and industry demand for lightweight packaging is driving the expansion of polythene terephthalate. Furthermore, lightweight has been a focus of the bottled water industry. From 2000 to 2014, the average weight of a 16.9-ounce PET (half-liter) plastic bottle reduced 48% to 9.89 grammes, according to the International Bottled Water Association. This decrease in weight is fueling the growth of the bottled water plastic packaging market.
