Increased demand for packaging solutions from food, automotive, electronics, and e-commerce industries provided significant growth to the Canada Packaging Market. The majority of consumers in Canada are shaped by trends such as an increase in the number of working women and the prevalence of nuclear and double-income households, particularly in urban areas. Busier lifestyles necessitate on-the-go items that save cooking time, contributing to the growth of the convenience packaging sector, which has an impact on the packaging market in Canada. Furthermore, greater disposable income and increased consumption of packaged goods in emerging nations would drive demand for Canada’s packaging market.

Plastics were the most often used packaging material in 2016, and they are expected to increase at the fastest rate between 2016 and 2020, while paper, board, and glass are expected to grow at a slower rate. Retail, manufacturing, and healthcare are just a few of the businesses that use packaging solutions in the region. These solutions have gained a lot of traction in the Canadian healthcare sector due to their high barrier properties, long shelf-life, and durability. The demand for packaging solutions can continue to grow throughout the research period. Canada is expected to develop at a higher rate because of the rising adoption of flexible packaging techniques across a variety of industries, including retail, pharmaceutical, food, and beverage. Furthermore, the retail sector in the country is booming, leading to a surge in demand for flexible packaging materials. On the other side, the Canadian packaging industry is concerned about the region's severe environmental regulations. Throughout the forecast period, national and state-level bans on plastic goods are expected to have a substantial impact on the market.

The Canada Packaging market based on packaging type can be further segmented into Paper, Plastic, Metal, Wood, Glass, and Others. In 2016, plastic had the highest proportion of the market. Plastic is becoming more popular in Canada owing to its increased demand in the FMCG sector, which could lead to widespread use of plastic bottles and containers in food, beverage, pharmaceutical, and other industries. Many organisations, on the other hand, are protesting and putting pressure on the government to prohibit the use of plastic products. This pressure could stymie the beverage industry's use of plastic bottles and containers. Regardless of usage, the beverage sector in Canada strives to have 100% of its bottles recycled. The industry created Public Spaces Recycling in collaboration with the government to capture the last mile of recyclables, such as items that are typically collected through curbside recycling programs but are left in recreational facilities, parks, public schools, businesses, and transit stops institutions, and gas stations. Apart from this, the plastic segment is studied to have shown the fastest growth during the study period of 2016-2020. This can be attributed to the adoption of durable, versatile, and approved flexible packaging by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) as food-safe. According to the Ontario Recycling Council, Canada recycles about 9% of its plastics, with the remainder ending up in landfills. Consumers in the country are increasingly opting for recyclable food packaging materials and choose brands that are environmentally conscious, which is driving the market for flexible packaging. Polyethylene demand will eventually decline as it is used by more than half of the sector owing to its cost-effectiveness and low density. Leading suppliers, on the other hand, are turning to recycle to keep their products relevant and competitive in the market against replacements. Furthermore, plastic packaging with golden guidelines and a framework with the goal of driving innovation and scalable activities is to make it easier to recycle plastic packaging by 2020.

Canada Packaging Market Growth Drivers:

The Increasing Consumer Knowledge Of Sustainable Packaging Materials Has Influenced Buyer Expectations.

Nowadays, customers want environmentally friendly products. Packaging is no different, as it has been following in the footsteps of other industries. Customers who are concerned about the environment now prefer paper or paperboard packaging compared to other types of packaging. The market for waste or recovered paper is expected to grow, and consumers have expressed an increased interest in purchasing recycled goods. It is also expected that as emerging economies become more industrialised, demand for paper and paperboard packaging will increase. Consumers choose paper and paperboard containers as they are biodegradable and more environmentally friendly than plastic. As paper and paperboard containers are recyclable, reusable, energy-efficient, and conserve natural resources, they are environmentally friendly. Businesses in a range of industries, such as retail, will adopt these products as a result of the environmental benefits associated with paper and paperboard containers, fueling demand for these products and the packaging market in Canada.
