The global rotomolded containers market is projected to benefit extensively from the ongoing technological developments across the globe. Several companies are engaged in R&D activities in order innovate the process and the machinery deployed. The main objective is to expand the industry and its capabilities. Asia Pacific excluding Japan is anticipated to have a core impact on the growth of the market. Rotomolding, although a superior process, does not enjoy the high market penetration that it does in Western Europe and North America. Asia Pacific excluding Japan represents one of the highest growth opportunities among all the regions. Henceforth, manufacturers should eye the profitable Asia Pacific excluding Japan rotomolded containers market, considering the strides made by various vertical industries such as the consumer electronics industry, food & beverage industry, and the chemical & fertilisers industry in the region.

Food and beverages to emerge as the leading end user of rotomolded containers

The global rotomolded containers market is projected to witness high demand from the food and beverages industry fuelled by the need for sturdy and durable containers. Rotomolded containers are widely used in the food industry for the storage of a wide range of products such as creams, eggs, sauces, gravies, and syrups, among others. The ability of rotomolded containers to endure harsh environments surges their adoption in the food and beverages industry.

The widely used material for the production of rotomolded containers is Polyethylene (PE), which accounted for over 69% of the global rotomolded containers market in 2016. It counterattacks cracking and denting, in addition to providing advanced durability than other containers produced by the blow molding and injection molding procedures. The usage of plastic prevents the onset of corrosion, unlike metal containers, and hence is highly preferred. High demand for rugged containers in the food industry is projected to make a noteworthy contribution to the progress of the global rotomolded container market.

Chemicals and fertilisers to showcase increase in market share in the coming years

Hazardous chemicals are present in close proximity in different social orders and could represent a risk if not taken care of precisely. The worldwide hazardous chemicals packaging market is backed by packaging innovation to ensure effective transport of chemical items. Producers of chemicals packaging work to provide different solutions for hazardous chemicals, for example, drums & IBCs, canisters and so forth. Hazardous chemical packaging eliminates harm and increases the time span of usability of the items stored during transportation. Besides, hazardous chemical packaging arrangements offer increased security to the items. The danger of spillage, blast and consumption is greatly diminished. As a result of this, the demand for rotomolded containers is quite high in the chemicals packaging industry owing to its significant properties and its resistance to any unwanted transportation hazards. The sturdiness of rotomolded containers is expected to bode well for the global market in the long run.

Global Packaging Industry Outlook

In the years to come, sustainable packaging may no longer be viewed as an oxymoron. Packaging companies are embracing “green” techniques in manufacturing processes, accepting sustainability as a part of solution, rather than a problem. Apart from government initiatives and stringy industrial regulations, customers are also putting pressure on packaging companies to reduce content of non-biodegradable materials in their packaging products – a measure commonly known as down gauging. Urbanization can play a pivotal role in instrumenting the growth in adoption of sustainable packaging practices. Rising concentration of customer base in urban cities is propelling the awareness towards green packaging. Leading brands in the packaging sector are making more environmental choices, and are understanding that consumers’ inclination towards sustainability can render cost-savings to manufacturers and deliver tangible profits.

As the global plastic production increases at a rapid pace, packaging companies realize the need for new, smarter materials that will not swamp our oceans and stuff-up our landfills. Materials with wider range of properties are being tested for their flexibility across multiple packaging applications. Short, one-use life cycle of plastic as packaging material, is also observed to drive the demand for sustainable alternatives. Packaging for food & beverage products is witnessing an uptick in adoption of edible films & wraps made from organic starch. Some players in the sector have pioneered the use of agar as packaging alternative to bubble wrap or foam materials. Biopolymers are also making foray into packaging as alternatives to unrecyclable plastic materials.

When supply is constrained in the face of high demand, key feedstock suppliers in the packaging sector, who are often large global producers, may pass on increased commodity costs to packaging manufacturers. Packaging companies, observed as “converters” in the materials industry, are currently in a potentially vulnerable position in the value chain since they engage in converting these raw materials into value-added packaging products. It is important for packaging businesses to regulate the stability of their input raw material costs. Due to undulating feedstock costs & fluctuating raw material prices, many packagers transfer the raw material price inflation to customers, as much as possible. In terms of procurement, several players in the packaging sector tend to balance the security of raw material supply contracts with their needs assessment.
