Increased Demand of Eco-friendly Packaging Materials to Drive
the Market

Environmental concerns over safe disposal and recycling of packaging
materials have led to the introduction of new policies and regulations
mandating companies to recover their packaging materials. Initially,
consumer-packaging materials were targeted owing to the scale of
packaging wastes generated; however, government and packaging
organizations have started addressing the environmental effects
occurring by the use of other packaging material as well.

As a result of this, the companies are moving towards biodegradable
packaging material to provide quicker and complete natural degradation.
Most of the paper products made from pure paper pulp, without addition
of waterproof coating or inks, are completely biodegradable as compared
to conventional paper packaging products, which take much longer time to
degrade naturally.

Steady rise in demand for food & beverages and construction industry has
contributed to the drastic increase in use of sack craft paper.
Recycling remains one of the major trends observed in these industries.
The volume demand for recycled paper is expected to grow to 1.5 million
metric tons by the end of 2018, which is expected to support the overall
market growth.
