Protective Packaging Market: Overview

Protective packaging is materials designed to shield and safeguard a product from damage or destruction during shipment or storage. Protective packaging can be manufactured out of any material, including but not restricted to plastic, cardboard, metal, and other materials. Protective packaging is often used as the primary element of a product's packaging or as a supplementary type of package supply. It serves a variety of purposes, but all kinds of protective packaging have the same goal, to ensure that a product arrives in perfect condition and free of damage or other issues.

COVID-19 Impact:

In 2020, protective packaging suppliers and manufacturers were heavily impacted by safety and government mandates made at the federal, state, and municipal levels. Companies have been compelled to adapt or change their everyday business activities as a result of the government's guidelines to halt the spread of the virus, along with Shelter-in-Place Orders issued at the state and municipal levels. Due to company closure laws, social distance conventions, and reduced municipal & state government office activity, protective packaging producers were impacted in 2020. The pandemic impeded protective packaging demand, owing to a drop in demand for these protective packaging from end-use sectors. However, the increase in logistic activities is likely to boost the global protective packaging market growth over the forecast period.

Protective Packaging Market: Growth Drivers

The booming E-commerce industry may fuel the growth of the market.

The e-commerce business is one of the fastest-growing sectors in the world as more and more people choose to purchase online. This is due to the ease and wide range of product availability. According to the US Department of Commerce, the e-commerce business in the US has grown at a pace of 17 percent per year over the last couple of years. Similarly, rapidly developing digital platform in Asian countries is supporting the growth of the E-commerce sector. Major E-commerce companies operating in emerging countries such as India, China, and Japan serve millions of customers. Protective packaging materials are used by large e-commerce firms like Alibaba, Amazon, and Flipkart to protect the contents from harm during shipment and delivery. With the such huge demand from the E-commerce sector, the market is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period.

Protective Packaging Market: Restraints

Strict rules related to packaging materials may hinder the growth of the market.

Packaging trash is harmful to the environment since it takes decades for it to degrade. Governments all across the globe are tackling this problem by enacting tough regulations that the packaging sector must follow. Governments in Europe, for example, have taken a variety of steps to address packaging waste and recycling difficulties. Governments in developing countries have grown increasingly concerned about environmental protection, and initiatives are being done to encourage sustainable packaging. As a result of these rules prohibiting enterprises from getting raw materials from organizations that do not comply with environmental regulations, the cost of raw materials will rise, further increasing the operating expenses. As profits drop, this has an impact on overall protective packaging revenues.

Protective Packaging Market: Opportunities

An increase in international trade globally will provide better growth opportunities for the market.

In emerging nations, construction and industrialization are growing at a rapid pace. Construction and chemical sector items are seeing an increase in demand as a result of this. As a result, international commerce is increasing in order to meet this need. The worldwide protective packaging industry is being driven by two key factors: technological advancements, which have lowered transportation costs, and greater trade & capital market liberalization, which has enhanced export and import activity. Companies are also shipping their products to other nations as a result of globalization, which is boosting the need for protective packaging to preserve items from harm across long distances.

Protective Packaging Market: Challenges.

Issues with efficiency and sustainability pose major challenges to the growth of the market.

Over boxing and inefficient use of space due to a lack of configurable boxing options can result in excess air being transported. More items may be carried in a single load with more efficient box and container space, lowering greenhouse gas emissions from needless excess transportation and weight. This system-wide management is aided by open communication among manufacturers, vendors, distributors, and brands, which lowers transportation costs. While volume and weight minimization are essential sustainability factors for protective packaging and sourcing, end-of-life is also equally crucial. Responsibly sourced renewable resources and recycled materials are examples of commodities with beneficial sourcing attributes. Favorable packaging is characterized as recyclable, reusable, or biodegradable after its life cycle.
