Increasing Demand from Food & Beverage Industry to Accelerate Growth

In several industries, namely, consumer goods, automotive, food & beverage, and electrical & electronics, the demand for plastics is increasing at a rapid rate. Above all, in the food & beverage industry, plastics are used at a large scale because of the increasing demand for packaging materials. As per one of our lead analysts, "Plastics are capable of acting as the stumbling blocks between the external environment and the food items. Therefore, the existing manufacturers are inclining more towards enhanced plastic packaging to reduce quality degradation and possibility of food contamination." These factors are set to drive the Plastics Market growth during the forthcoming years.

Availability of Cost-effective Raw Materials to Favor Growth in Asia Pacific

In terms of region, the polymers market is grouped into Latin America, the Middle East and Africa, North America, Asia Pacific, and Europe. Amongst these, North America acquired USD 72.90 billion Plastics Market revenue in 2018 and is likely to showcase significant growth throughout the forecast period. This growth is attributable to the increasing demand for plastics in the U.S. from industries, namely, healthcare & pharmaceuticals, automotive, packaging, and more. Europe is expected to experience considerable growth in the near future on account of the high demand for plastics from the infrastructure & construction industry.

Asia Pacific, on the other hand, is likely to be the fastest-growing region owing to the large consumption of plastics by India and China. China would lead because of the availability of raw materials at lower rates in this country. It is, in turn, minimizing the hindrances involved in the plastic production process. Apart from that, the demand for plastics from the consumer goods industry is skyrocketing because of their increasing usage in the production of textiles, toys, and sports goods.

Below are two of the latest key developments:

  • January 2020: Nestlé, a multinational food and drink processing conglomerate corporation based in Switzerland, is planning to invest approximately CHF 2 billion to shift to food-grade recycled plastics from virgin plastics. It would upsurge the development of unique sustainable packaging solutions. Besides, the company would cut off the usage of virgin plastics by one third till the year 2025. At the same time, it is working persistently to clean up the plastic waste from rivers, lakes, and oceans.
  • July 2019: ExxonMobil, a multinational oil and gas corporation headquartered in Texas, declared that it has initiated the production of a high-performance polyethylene line at its polyethylene plant situated in Beaumont. The expansion is set to boost the plant production capacity by 650,000 tons per year. As per the company, this expansion would help it in meeting the ever-increasing demand for polyethylene, especially high-performance products utilized for agricultural films, construction liners, and liquid and food packaging.
