The global rigid packaging market size is projected to reach USD 848.71 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., exhibiting a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period. Increasing demand for sustainable packaging is expected to augment the market over the forecast period.

Packaging is a process of protecting and enclosing goods for storage, distribution, and sale.Rigid packaging is a type of packing which is characterized by high stiffness, impact strength, and barrier properties.

It is offered in several forms, including jars, containers, bottles, and cans.

Raw materials required for manufacturing of rigid packing include metals, paper & paperboard, glass, and plastic.Suppliers of these materials are present worldwide, making the market fragmented.

Rio Tinto and Alcoa are some of the key suppliers of metals such as aluminum, while ArcelorMittal is the largest steel manufacturer in the world.

Final products are sold by distributors, retailers, and wholesalers. Major players in this stage include Packaging Supplies Ltd., Packing Suppliers of America, Paper Mart, and Packaging Centre. Some of the manufacturers have adopted integration wherein they sell the products through exclusive outlets.

Rigid packaging accounted for over 80.0% of the total packing industry in 2016. However, flexible packing offers more advantages as compared to rigid ones such as lightweight, energy savings, small pack size, ease of transportation & storage, and convenient disposal. Hence, the flexible packing market is expected to make inroads in the rigid packaging market in the coming years.
