The PCR plastic packaging market size is projected to be worth USD 74,745.2 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period (2022–2030).
The post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic packaging is kind of recycled packaging which is made of from the packaging products already consumed by the end users. The used packaging scrap collected at recycling plant and recycled and then reprocessed into a resins to make new form of packaging. The PCR plastic packaging is highly sustainable form of packaging and getting widely accepted across the global now a days
COVID-19 Impact on the Global PCR Plastic Packaging Market:
The severe spread of pandemic across the continents has not only damage the global manufacturing sector but also disrupt the packaging industry and its supply chain. Global PCR plastic packaging market is no exception to this. Factors such as stringent lockdown across the regions, inadequate supply of raw materials, shutdown in manufacturing plant and sudden drop in demand generation from customers has lowered the market growth to a significant extent.
Leading as well as medium-scale manufacturers operating in the global packaging industry are consistently putting efforts to reduce their carbon footprints and expanding their product range of highly sustainable yet recyclable packaging solutions. Increasing awareness among these packaging manufacturers towards sustainable packaging strategies and initiatives is one of the pivotal factors that bolster the PCR plastic packaging market growth across the globe. Manufacturers are improving their circular economy plans by manufacturing and launching PCR plastic packaging solutions at a regular intervals. Moreover, consistent financial investment by leading manufacturers to upgrade their packaging portfolio of PCR plastic packaging is also reinforcing the market growth significantly.
Recycling of consumed plastic packaging by end users is one of the crucial parts of PCR plastic packaging. Post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic packaging requires adequate and efficient manufacturing facilities to produce end product. The lack of highly equipped and advance recycling facilities may restrict the production of PCR plastic packaging. The absence of required recycling plants especially in Asian and Middle east and African countries is liming the PCR plastic packaging market growth in the regions. Along with this, the lack of awareness towards PCR plastic packaging among the brand owners, manufacturers and end users in Asian countries is also hindering the market growth to certain extent.
The major portion of the demand for PCR plastic packaging is generated from highly potential food and beverage pharmaceutical industries. Rising per capita expenditure on food & beverages and pharmaceutical items across the globe is creating enormous demand for food and nonfood products and its packaging. The manufacturing output from these industries in recent years has witnessed a significant spike and is projected to remain the same during the coming years. Leading manufacturers operating in global packaging market are offering a range of packaging solutions to cater the demand generated from these end use industries. PCR packaging solutions such as bottles, trays and clamshell, bags & sacks, cups & jars, and blisters are predominantly used in food & beverages and pharmaceutical industries. Manufacturers operating in the global PCR plastic packaging can target these highly potential end-use industries to maximize their sales of PCR plastic packaging and profitability as well.
