The LDPE grade has a high demand for meat and seafood product packaging, whereas HDPE is primarily used across several industrial applications.

Polypropylene (PP) is one of the most widely used plastics in the world. The demand for PP-based packaging is expected to grow on account of the superior toughness of PP. It also exhibits several favorable properties, such as high puncture resistance, clarity, strength, and good heat resistance, which make it suitable for various applications. Polypropylene helps in retaining the freshness of food items, owing to which, it is widely used in the food packaging industry.

The containers segment led the market in 2020 and accounted for more than 26.01% of the global revenue share. Wide usage of these products in the foodservice industry resulted in its significant market share. Containers are used for packaging a variety of food products, including fresh and dry fruits, bakery products, frozen food, chilled and prepared meals. PET, PP, and PS are the most commonly used materials for container manufacturing.

The demand for clamshell packaging is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR over the forecast period. Electronics and homecare industries prefer these products on account of their benefits, including lucrative design, ease of use, transparency, and tamper-evident properties.

food & beverage emerged as the largest end-use industry and accounted for 51% of the overall revenue share. Rising demand for thermoformed packaging solutions for the dairy and related industries is anticipated to have a positive impact on market growth. Furthermore, high demands for these products for the transportation of fruits and vegetables is likely to drive segment growth.

The consumer electronics segment is driven by various factors including new product developments, shorter product life cycles coupled with high consumer spending on electronic gadgets. In the electronics industry, blister packs are used for the packing of mobile accessories, headphones, batteries, etc. E-commerce plays an important role in the sale of various electronic products. The growth of the retail e-commerce sector is likely to propel the demand for the blister packs in the electronics and homecare segment over the forecast period.

North America accounted for the largest revenue share of 28% in 2020 on account of high technology penetration along with the presence of well-established food & beverage and pharmaceutical sectors in the region. Furthermore, frequent new product launches by the thermoform manufacturing companies in the region are expected to support market growth.

The market in APAC is estimated to register the maximum CAGR from 2020 to 2027. India, in particular, is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate over the forecasted period. Heavy local and international investments in the food & beverage, electronics, and pharmaceutical sectors in the country to cater to the increasing demand are likely to have a positive impact on the regional market growth.
