Key Market Trends

Plastic Packaging to Dominate the Market
  • According to the National Association of Container Distributors, the push for lightweight packaging from consumers and businesses is spurring the growth of polyethylene terephthalate. Moreover, lightweight has been a focal point of the bottled water sector. According to the International Bottled Water Association, the average weight of a 16.9 ounce PET (half-liter) plastic bottle has dropped 48% to 9.89 grams from 2000 to 2014. This drop in weight is creating a market for bottled water plastic packaging market.
  • Further, with the advancements in manufacturing, coupled with lowering operational cost, resins, and packaging, are pacing the industry’s growth. Low feedstock costs are encouraging the utilization and adoption of plastics bottle packagings.
  • Moreover, by focusing on customers, brand owners are pushing design innovations in plastic bottling that are unparalleled in the rest of the packaging sector, such as weight savings in transport and manufacturing. This is fueling the bottled water plastic packaging market.

North America Held the Maximum Share in the Market
  • According to the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) and the Beverage Marketing Corporation (BMC), Americans are drinking more bottled water than any other packaged beverage. Health awareness, a higher standard of living, and rising demand and consumption of bottled water are some of the major driving factors of bottled water packaging in North America.
  • Moreover, in developed economies, like the United States and Canada, functional water is becoming a major commercial and popular beverage category, as it is an appealing option for health-conscious consumers. Hence, augmenting the bottled water market.
  • Moreover, the initiative for waste management systems is plateauing in their ability to increase post-consumer collection of PET bottles. For instance, Nestle Waters is piloting schemes to improve plastic collection and sharing what they find to assess their scale-up and replicability from technical interventions, like reverse vending machines to building an extended producer responsibility system.
  • Such initiatives are making the North America region to dominate the bottled water packaging market.
