The global rigid packaging market has shown steady growth during the past few years. This trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period due to increasing consumer spending on packaged goods worldwide. In addition, growth in manufacturing output and other demographic trends including rising urban population, and changing dietary habits of consuming packaged foods is expected to fuel the growth of this market over the forecast period. Rising demand for rigid packaging is also supported by the expanding and extensive recycling infrastructure available for plastics, glass, and metal. Rigid packaging helps to keep finished goods and products safe for a longer period of time to enable transportation and distribution across huge distances. It is used to package in many different forms such as aerosol containers, cups, corrugated cases, bottles, cans, aluminum bottles, ampules, and jars. Furthermore, rigid packaging has many unique properties such as high stiffness, high impact strength, and higher barrier properties. All these properties mentioned above have led to the growing demand for rigid packaging in recent years.

Increasing popularity of packaging media provides a longer shelf life to finished food items and other products such as cosmetics and toiletries. Thus, it is a driving factor for the growth of global rigid packaging in the food and beverage industry. Increasing international trade that has led to a boost in investment in quality packaging is also driving the food and beverage industry. Furthermore, demand for rigid packaging increases due to growing demand for processed and convenience food products such as snacks, processed meat and fish, and cakes to prevent microbial and bacterial spoilage. Health conscious consumers opt for healthy and safe packaging of foods and beverages that helps them to keep fit and healthy. Apart from this, stringent government regulations across different countries restrain the growth of the food packaging market in different regions such as Europe and North America. Different organizations including FDA (Food and Drug Administration) have set strict safety standards to determine whether a packaging is safe enough for its intended use. Rigid packaging find its application in various sectors such as medicines; cosmetics; home appliances; industrial packaging; and durable goods such as furniture, firearms, and toys in the near future.
