Farmington, Jan. 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — 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 2023–2030. Post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic packaging is a type of recycled packaging made from packaging products that have already been used by consumers. Used packaging scraps are brought to a recycling plant, where they are recycled and turned back into resins that are used to make new packaging. PCR plastic packaging is a type of packaging that is very good for the environment and is becoming more popular around the world.
As more people are willing to pay more for more environmentally friendly packaging, the market for post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic packaging could grow. A large number of companies in the packaging industry were smart enough to change with the times. Many of them are responding to this demand by making their packaging solutions more friendly to the environment. One way to do this is to increase the PCR content, especially in rigid packaging that uses polyethylene terephthalate a lot (PET).

By the end of 2020, PCR plastic packaging will be worth US$ 36,4 billion on the global market. Leading brands have said they want to use recycled plastic to help solve the problem of plastic waste. This could cause the market to grow a lot between 2020 and 2030.

Recent Developments:

  • In August 2022, Europe-based flexible packaging company Coveris launched a lightweight, next-generation stretch film with 30% recycled plastic content to reduce reliance on virgin plastics.

  • In January 2022, Berry Global Inc., one of the leading packaging giants, announced a new BCircular product line consisting of 100% PCR content. The new packaging range is ideal for food and beverage packaging applications.

  • In January 2021, Amcor Plc, another prominent packaging manufacturer, announced and announced plans to invest in strengthening and expanding its portfolio of sustainable and recyclable packaging products. We introduced PCR rigid packaging solutions to the market through an investment firm.

Segmentation Analysis:

The polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polyethylene (PE) segments are the ones that drive the market the most. Also, these two segments are used a lot in rigid packaging, which is a good sign for their future demand.

Based on how they are used, the global PCR plastic packaging market is split into segments: bottles, trays and clamshells, bags and sacks, cups and jars, blisters, and others. During the next few years, bottles will be the most popular type of product. The target market is profitable because people use and want bottles a lot, and manufacturers are putting more effort into making and introducing bottles with highly sustainable packaging. In the near future, it is likely that the bottle segment will have a large share of the market.

Based on the end user, the global PCR plastic packaging market is split into Food & Beverages, Pharmaceuticals, Personal Care & Cosmetics, Electronics, and Others. During the time frame of the forecast, the market is expected to be led by the food and beverage subsegment. Because the global food and beverage industry is making more and more products, and because the demand for rigid packaging is going up a lot, the target market has a huge need for PCR plastic packaging. Also, in the next ten years, the pharmaceutical industry could become a source of income for manufacturers.

Regional Outlook:

In terms of market share and dominance, North America and Europe have a large share of the global PCR plastic packaging market. Leading PCR plastic packaging manufacturers like Berry Global Inc, Amcor Plc, Klockner Pentaplast, and others have a large presence in North American and European countries. This is a major factor in the growth of the market. Also, when these manufacturers in the PCR plastic packaging industry come out with new packaging products, it makes PCR plastic packaging more popular with end users. These same things also drive sales of PCR packaging solutions in North America and Europe.

On the other hand, manufacturers expect Asia-Pacific to become their main source of income in the near future. In high-potential Asian countries like China, Japan, and India, where packaging technology is changing quickly and people are becoming more aware of highly recyclable packaging, the growth of the PCR plastic packaging market is being driven by these factors. On the global PCR plastic packaging market, manufacturers can make the most money by focusing on the very lucrative Asian countries.
