The term sustainable packaging refers to the development and use of packaging materials that improve the sustainability of a material. It is designed to safeguard the product throughout its lifecycle. The different materials used for sustainable packaging are glass, metal, and plastic, among others. 

In the last few years, it has been observed that the consumer preference is shifting toward the recyclable and eco-friendly materials. This is one of the major growth drivers for the sustainable packaging market. Global environmental concerns regarding sustainable development and enforcement of stringent rules by various governments globally have increased the usage of sustainable packaging material. The development of alternative materials, such as bioplastics, is likely to increase the demand for environment-friendly packaging in the forecast time period. The key market players are also taking various steps toward the development and growth of this market. For instance, Hovis, one of the major key players, launched renewable packaging polyethylene, which is used in bread packaging. However, the lack of awareness about the importance of sustainability in some emerging economies might restrain the sustainable packaging market. However, the growth of the e-commerce industry is likely to provide lucrative growth opportunities in the global sustainable packaging market.
