The increasing demand for cheaper, lighter, and more convenient packaging makes Rigid Plastics the preferred pack type for FMCG products, and it is expected to have the highest CAGR of 7.7% (highest CAGR among all packaging types analyzed) during 2016-2021, driven by the rising demand from Food and Beverage industries. Going forward, the advent of bio-based and thermo-formed plastics is expected to promote the popularity of Rigid Plastics in China.

During 2016-2021, Food and Soft Drinks are expected to be the biggest market share gainers (by units), with reported share growth of 3% and 2% respectively. The introduction of innovative Food and Beverage packaging materials with improved benefits such as anti-microbial properties and mechanical strength, which ultimately help to maintain product freshness for a longer time, are expected to drive the consumption of packaged food, thereby directly driving the growth of packaging materials in these two industries. In terms of the packaging material, Rigid Plastics and Flexible Packaging are among the major share gainers, with share growth of 3% and 1% respectively during the same period.

Flexible Packaging in China is expected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 6.5% during 2016-2021, predominantly in the Food, Household Care, and Cosmetics & Toiletries Industries. This growth is largely driven by its low cost and flexibility to suit multiple shapes and sizes, convenience (zip-locks, plastic closures), and low-carbon foot print on the environment as compared to Rigid Plastics. In addition, the increasing prominence of low-density flexible packs in high protein foods and the advent of new technologies to convert used Rigid Plastics into Flexible packs is expected to drive growth in the future.
