India PET Packaging Market to Reach US$ 1.7 Billion by 2027, Fostered by Surging Sales of Ready-to-Eat (RTE) Foods

Published on Oct 03, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “India PET Packaging Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the India PET packaging market size reached US$ 1.3 Billion in 2021. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is a lightweight polyester thermoplastic elastomer that can be molded into different packaging containers, including boxes and bottles. PET packaging is manufactured by melting pellets of PET resin and extruding the molten liquid into the desired shape. Compared to other packaging materials, such as glass, aluminum, and copper, it is more cost-effective, lightweight, thermally stable, unbreakable, and durable. It offers excellent resistance to moisture, solvents, alcohols, and microorganisms, which protects the packaged content from degradation and ensures quality. Since it helps reduce wastage, lowers transportation and shipping costs, and retains the freshness of packaged products, PET packaging has gained immense traction in India across the food and beverages, personal care, and pharmaceutical industries. 

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.                                

India PET Packaging Market Trends:

In India, the surging sales of ready-to-eat (RTE) foods due to the expanding working population, hectic lifestyles, and inflating incomes represent the primary factor driving the market growth. Additionally, the emerging trend of on-the-go food consumption has strengthened the demand for small-sized, single-serve products packed in materials, such as PET and metal cans. In line with this, the shifting inclination toward value-for-money products and the widespread price consciousness among consumers across the country have accelerated product adoption rates. Moreover, PET packaging finds extensive applications in packaging beauty, personal care, and pet food products. Consequently, the increasing sales of these products are positively influencing the market growth. Furthermore, the leading manufacturers are heavily investing in research and development (R&D) activities to introduce reusable and recyclable packaging solutions owing to the escalating demand for eco-friendly products. Along with this, the launch of plasma-based coating that makes bottles more impervious has catalyzed market growth. Besides this, the surging need for customized and different-sized packs for product branding has augmented the demand for PET packaging. Other factors, including the growing popularity of carbonated beverages, especially among the young population, rising western influence, emerging e-commerce industry, and rapid urbanization, are also creating a favorable market outlook. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 1.7 Billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 4.9% during 2022-2027.
