Sustainability measures are significantly impacting the packaging sector, and suppliers require sustainable packaging solutions. Thus, the demand for sustainable plastic is increasing in the packaging sector. Sustainable plastic packaging offers industrialists all the benefits of plastic while reducing the negative environmental impact.

Sustainable plastic for packaging comes from various sources, and plant-based plastic is gaining popularity. Consumer preference for recyclable materials is driving the market for recyclable plastic. Biodegradable plastic is also experiencing increased production as industrial units aim to meet regulatory standards.

The sustainable plastic packaging market also faces certain challenges. There are concerns over the true sustainability of eco-friendly plastic, and there is a lack of consumer awareness regarding aspects of the material, such as how to properly recycle recyclable plastic.

Thus, suppliers can market the multiple benefits of sustainable plastic packaging," says Ismail Sutaria (Lead Consultant, Packaging and Materials).
