Water packaging is the fastest-growing segment of the beverage market, and PET is widely used for it. Most packaged products are designed for single use, so plastic is the preferred material on account of its low cost. Diminished water sources, a rising urban population, and increased demand for potable water are resulting in increased water trade. This is boosting the demand for packaging material, including caps and closures.

According to the report, PE, PP, PVC, and polystyrene (PS) are the mostly commonly used plastic resins. Crude oil refiners worldwide are increasingly resorting to downstream integration to improve profit margins. This has resulted in easier availability of polymer resins and a reduction in polymer prices. Also, technological innovations such as the development of cost-efficient and energy-efficient machineries have lowered the fixed capital requirement and reduced production and operating expenses, thereby encouraging the adoption of plastic in packaging applications.

Further, the report states that incompatibility of the substrates such as PP and PE with certain organic liquids and mineral acids is hindering the growth of the market.

The report further provides data on the following segments of the market:

  • Type: PE, PP, and others
