Packaging Resins Market Drivers

High Demand from Pharmaceutical Industry

The growing demand for packaging resin based on Low Density Polyethylene, Polyvinyl chloride, Thermoplastic polymer, and Polyethylene terephthalate from the Pharma industry are driving the growth of the market. Due to increased demand for medication, and an increase in infectious, chronic, and deficiency diseases the demand for medical packaging has increased. These resins are used for manufacturing medication packaging like medicine vials, ampoules, blister packs, syringes, labels, accessories, inhalers, vials, pouches for drugs, medical products, and others. Whereas, the Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) and Polyvinyl Dine Chloride (PVDC) are majorly used for pharmaceutical packaging materials. The resins protect the pharmaceutical products against oxygen and odor, moisture, water vapor transmission, contamination, and bacteria. Therefore, any growth in the pharmaceutical industry will further boost the demand for packaging resin. For instance, as per the Indian Brand Equity Foundation, the pharmaceutical industry in India is projected to reach $100 billion by 2025. Furthermore, according to Packaging Europe, a private company report in 2019, pharmaceutical packaging is expected to reach $128 billion by 2025, which will propel the demand for plastic films & sheets during the forecasted period.

Rapid Urbanization is Fueling the Market Growth

According to the United Nations (UN) report, around 55% of the global population resides in urban areas and is expected to increase to 68% by 2050. The growth in urban population creates demand for FMCG products, the food & beverages industry, and the e-commerce business, which in turn drives the demand for packaging resins. As packaging resins are used to manufacture packaging bags, films, containers, bottles, packaging tapes, bubble wrap, and others. They protect their products, from moisture, contamination, spillover, and prevent goods damages during delivery. According to Indian Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF) in 2020, India is the fastest-growing e-commerce market and is expected to grow at 1200% by 2026 and is expected to reach $84 billion by 2021. Furthermore, in a report released by Food Drinks Europe in 2019, a food industry confederation, the food & drink industry revenue was € 1,192 billion (around $ 1,413 billion) in 2018. Therefore, the growth in these industries will further boost the demand for packaging resin products based on Low-Density Polyethylene, Polyvinyl chloride, Thermoplastic polymer, and Polyethylene terephthalate.
