More information about this study is here:

Dairy product containers will account for largest share of sales growth through 2022. The continued popularity of single-serving dairy containers and increasing popularity of specific yogurt segments will support gains. Plastic bottles will see especially strong growth due to the increasing consumption of various non-dairy creamers, as consumers look to create coffee shop flavors at home.

The perishable prepared foods market will see the fastest fresh food container gains through 2022. Consumers' desire for convenience will boost demand, as rigid tubs, clamshells, and bowls are ideal containers for cut and peeled fruit, prepared sandwiches, and pre-mixed salads.
