One of the key factors driving the growth of the global liquid packaging market is the increasing inclination of consumers toward packaged drinks and food products. A fast-paced lifestyle as well as better convenience of packaged drinks as compared to other packaging methods such as glass bottles is another major factor fueling the liquid packaging market growth. Plastic packaging is one of the key alternatives and major competitors for carton packaging for drinks. Moreover, carton packaging scores much on recyclability and environmental grounds. In addition, consumers seek environmentally friendly modes of packaging which could be another major aspect anticipated to boost the market expansion. Also, in the long run, the feasible recyclability of liquid packages helps in reducing overall municipal wastage and brings down the total cost of production.
The global liquid packaging market is mainly regulated by changing economics, sustainability, and demographics. Asia-Pacific is considered home to the largest population in the world and is also considered the fastest-growing market for liquid packaging products. The rapid growth of population in countries such as India, China, Pakistan, Thailand, and Indonesia coupled with the increasing per capita disposable incomes has resulted in the rapid growth of the liquid food industry, which in turn is driving the growth of the liquid packaging market. While North America is witnessing stagnation in the global market, the growth in Europe is anticipated to be feasibly moderate. Latin America, Russia, Asia-Pacific, and Africa are considered to be the key regions driving the growth of the liquid packaging market value over the forecast period.
Liquid Packaging Market Segmentation
The global liquid packaging market segmentation is based on raw material, packaging type, technique, end-use, and geography.
