Inclination Towards Lightweight Packaging to Push Market Revenue Growth
Companies across the globe in different sectors are trying to cut costs and eliminate processes that diminish their bottom line. In comparison to other forms of packaging such as glass or can, a less amount of raw material is used while manufacturing thin wall plastic containers. This helps companies cut down their raw material costs. In addition to this, thin wall plastic containers can be manufactured in a shorter cycle time which translates to higher productivity and comparatively lower cost per produced part. Furthermore, thin wall plastic containers are used in a variety of applications including medical disposables, electronic hosing and protection among others, which provide a lot of potential for cost savings for manufacturers, suppliers, and retailers in multiple fields. As these containers are quite thin, they offer a myriad of design opportunities as well. Moreover, in an effort to meet sustainability goals, companies are concentrating on lighter packaging materials.
On the other hand, snowballing landfills, impairment of the ecosystem, and long-term health problems are some of the harmful effects of plastic containers. Growing oversight by consumers and interest groups over the harmful effects of traditional plastic packaging has made eco-friendly packaging the centre of the strategic base of the industry.

Various manufacturers are at present focussing on biodegradable packaging. This scenario may negatively impact growth in sales of thin wall plastic containers.
