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.
