Growing Preference for Smart Rigid Packaging Solutions to Augment Market Growth
Rigid packaging solutions such as drums and beverage cans are extensively being used. However, addition of technologies such as RFID and AR for easy tracking and tracing of products is expected to bring in a sea-change in the logistics and supply chain.
RFID technology allows automatic identification and storage of information regarding the location and availability of plastic and steel drums. It offers solutions for product tracking, goods movements, loading inspections, and asset tracking. RFID technology has not only allowed manufacturers to track availability of drums, but also enhanced their servicing efficiency by controlling accurate supply capabilities.
Manufacturers and suppliers of plastic and steel drums continuously face challenges that arise with delay in supply of drums. RFID allows validation of number of shipments to take stock inventories as per invoices. Validating the availability of drums with the help of RFID enables manufacturers to avoid unnecessary costs related to delays and loss.

Impact of COVID-19 on Rigid Packaging Containers Market
Significant portion of the global rigid packaging containers market is captured by food and beverages industries. The demand for rigid packaging containers such as cans, bottles & jars, and clamshells is substantially attributed to food & beverages sectors.
Post COVID-19, food & beverages companies are facing considerably reduced consumption, which has negatively affected the demand for clamshells, bottles, jars and cans due to reduced purchasing.
Several food chains, restaurants, retail stores, and hypermarkets are operating at reduced capacities in most regions due to lockdowns, which is projected to hamper the sales for rigid packaging containers.
Apart from this, demand for drums, jerry cans and kegs has witnessed a sudden drop, as the number of the industrial production plants have reduced their production volume or completely shut down. All these factors are likely to restrict the rigid packaging containers market growth for certain period.
