Plastic packaging generally refers to the packaging that relates to the bags, pouches, containers and envelopes made of plastics. They are generally made up of polymers such as high-density polyethylene (HDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polypropylene (PP) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The low cost of manufacturing and uses across a wide range of divisions has accelerated the demand for plastic bottles/containers in the European market.

The Europe production of plastic containers in 2016 was XX MMT and is estimated to reach XX MMT by the end of 2022 at a CAGR of 6.58%.

Increasing consumer preference towards plastic packaging products as it is lighter than glass and metal along with the growing environmental concerns and formulation of strict regulations for use of plastic for packaging products will further expect to drive the market growth. However, rising raw material prices along with the economic slowdowns in some of the regions has hindered the growth of the market.

The Europe plastic bottles/containers market is segmented on the basis of raw material and verticals. On the basis of raw materials, the market has been segmented into PET, PP, HDPE and LDPE. Whereas, by verticals the market has been bifurcated into beverages, food, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, industry and transport, household chemicals and others.

There is an increasing demand for PET bottles in soft drink and bottled water markets. Factors like low-carbon footprint, demographics are driving the PET bottles industry. Cosmetics industry which majorly uses glass as a packaging material is slowly being substituted by PET bottles. In addition, plastic bottles and containers will realize growth with demand for unit dose packaging in pharmaceutical packaging, which is a high-growth end market for plastic packaging.

Beverages industry leads the market in the developed regions like Europe with a market share of 40% in 2015. End-use industries like healthcare and bottled water are increasing the usage of plastics, and thus, with its growing market, the plastic container market is expected to increase. Food and beverages industry constitute around 50-55% of the total plastic bottles usage.
