Top 10 Players in Global Green Packaging Market (Sustainable Packaging)

Green packaging is the process of using sustainable materials and methods for the packaging of goods. This procedure is constructed in an environmentally sensitive manner with recyclable, energy-efficient, and biodegradable materials. By using sustainable packaging, consumers and product manufacturers can eliminate exposure to chemicals and contaminants that harm the soil, water, and the overall atmosphere of the Earth. The manufacturing and transportation processes of green packaging involve the usage of alternative energy sources like biofuels and solar and wind energy. Some of the raw materials utilized in these products include post-consumer recycled polyethylene bags, and plant-based and biodegradable plastics. As compared to conventional packages, green packaging products are made with absolute post-consumer waste (PCW) paper, reduce wastage by shredding and reusing old paper sheets as packing material, and conserve energy by using green power certified materials. Owing to these benefits, the global green packaging market reached a value of US$ 232 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 319 Billion by 2027, exhibiting at a CAGR of 5.5% during 2022-2027.
