Sustainable packaging consumes less energy and has fewer negative environmental consequences. In variation to products such as plastic and Styrofoam, green packing solutions include biodegradable and recyclable materials. Sustainable packaging also saves energy and minimises the amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced. The introduction of bioplastics, environmental concerns about sustainable development, and regulatory agencies enforcing strict laws and policies are some of the factors that boost the growth of the market in the forecast period. Furthermore, rising consumer awareness of sustainable packaging techniques that employ bioplastics as a raw material across numerous industries, such as FMCG, personal body care, and pharmaceuticals, would propel market expansion in the approaching years. Sustainable packaging reduces greenhouse gas emissions as it uses fewer fossil fuels in its production, and the products are biodegradable in nature, thereby propelling the growth of the market in the upcoming years. Land-filled organic food and garden waste release methane gas that is used as renewable energy and the compost by-product is used to enhance soil quality which will have a positive impact on the green packaging market growth in the future. Moreover, concerns about environmental impacts caused by the increased use of plastic bottles across the food and beverage industry, leading to several companies using recycled plastic (rPET) in their bottle design, thus, boosting the market growth. However, high production and setup costs have refrained businesses to adapt green packaging.

During the projection period, the Asia Pacific region dominated the market.

The regional market is projected to be driven by this. Raw materials for the manufacturing of cartons, bags, boxes, and other packaging equipment are easily available throughout Southeast Asia. This is also predicted to have a favorable influence on the market. North America is expected to show considerable growth in the market attributed to strict policies supporting green and sustainable packaging. Europe is one of the market's most important areas. The local market is being driven by the growing need for sustainable packaging materials, which are both cost-effective and environmentally benign.
