Significant Opportunities in the Global Packaging Resins Market

Packaging Resins Market

The Packaging Resins Market is estimated at USD 192.17 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 277.13 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.6% from 2017 to 2022. Downsizing of packaging products, cost-effectiveness, and increased shelf-life of products are expected to drive the demand for packaging resins during the forecast period.

In addition, the demand for packaging resins in the food & beverage and FMCG is expected to fuel the market. Packaging resins protect products from moisture and other environmental hazards, which makes these preferable compared to conventional packaging, such as paper, metal, etc.

Polypropylene (PP) is projected to be the fastest-growing type segment of the packaging resins market between 2017 and 2022 due to the provision of an excellent barrier against gas and vapors. PP possesses similar features to those of polyethylene, and does not crack under stress, with the exception when hot aromatic or halogenated solvent products are packaged, which soften it. It has high resistance to almost all types of chemicals, including strong acids, alkalis, and most organic materials.
