Green Packaging Market Worth $237.8 Billion By 2024 | CAGR 5.7%

April 2018 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

The global green packaging market size is expected to reach USD 237.8 billion by 2024, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., registering a 5.7% CAGR during the forecast period. Increasing consumer awareness about eco-friendly products is expected to be a key factor driving the market growth.

Increasing government campaigns for educating consumers about the benefits of eco-friendly products and the harmful effects of toxic packaging materials is expected to benefit industry growth over the forecast period.

According to a recent survey conducted by packaging manufacturer, Asia Pulp & Paper, over 50.0% of people in South and North America prefer green packaging when they purchase any product. Additionally, 42.0% of the people surveyed stated their willingness to pay more for green packaging options.

Bioplastics have zero CO2 emissions, which makes them increasingly popular in developed regions of North America and Europe. In 2010, European Heads of State and Government (the European Council) finalized a 20% reduction in greenhouse gases and 20% energy to be derived from renewable sources as part of their strategy called ‘Europe 2020’. Government initiative schemes such as these are likely to be a key growth driver over the forecast period.

Key packaging manufacturers prefer outsourcing their own production to location with cheap labor and abundant raw material availability. However, outsourcing of production has some limitations as these products are low-valued goods and high transportation costs can limit profitability. End-use industries, such as food & beverages and healthcare, work in collaboration with companies in the packaging industry as design, shape, and print on the package play a crucial role in capturing potential customers.
