Shifting preference of consumers from traditional packaging to novel packaging
Rapid growth in the residential sector in urban as well as semi-urban areas across the world is expected to contribute significantly to the revenue growth of the global calendering resins market. Substantial growth in the services and manufacturing sector has led to strong growth in the global GDP in the past. This, in turn, has had a positive impact on the calendering resins (PET, PETG, and PVC) market. Economic growth of several regions is likely to increase the disposable income with people, which in turn improves their standard of living. Many such people are now preferring shifting towards new packaging. They demand safer and flexible packaging films for products from various industries such as food & beverage, pharmaceutical and agriculture. The use of packaging with films made of calendering resins is widely demanded due to the increase in demand for flexible packaging for the containers used in shipping products.
Flexible packaging is increasingly being used in major consumer brands. There is also some new introduction of products in the flexible packaging market such as vacuum pouches, high temperature retort pouches, and stand-up pouches, which has led to a change in global packaging trends. Addition of layers into the flexible packaging structure can lead to improvements in its functionality and economic viability. Flexible packaging products use over 70% less plastic than rigid packaging options and also acquire a small space on shelves during packaging. Lightweight characteristics of flexible packaging makes its recycling easier. Flexible packaging provides a wide range of presentation possibilities that enable the product manufacturer to increase the aesthetic appeal of the product and also enhance the product branding. This increases the inclination of product manufacturers towards the adoption of flexible packaging solutions over rigid packaging solutions.
Growth in the global food industry is resulting in an increased demand for packaging films
Significant growth of the food & beverage industry will help drive the calendering resins (PET, PETG, and PVC) market over the forecast period. Consumers are more inclined towards the use of packaging films for food products. PVC, PET and PETG films are considered the most economic means for the packaging, protection and distribution of food products. Other properties of these packaging films include an improved shelf life, flexible packaging that is easy to store the products, reseal ability, no contamination, UV resistance, recyclable nature, shock resistance and low shrinkage tendency. These packaging films are also becoming the first choice of many food industries as these are considered more economical than any other packaging material. Other than food and beverages, the healthcare and medical segment is also expected to dominate the global calendering resins market with the increase in demand for flexible packaging plastic.
