Rigid packaging and consumer goods

Rigid plastics packaging has seen remarkable growth due to its unique combination of lightweight, strength, shatter resistance and barrier properties. Fuelled by increasingly sophisticated consumer demands for convenient packaging solutions, and driven by the powerful brand owners and supermarket groups, rigid plastics packaging is continually increasing its penetration versus traditional packaging media. Products such as blow moulded bottles, dispensing caps and closures, and thin wall packaging are able to enhance brand modernity, aesthetics and usability and offer differentiation to drive demand. At the same time, this industry faces challenges in terms of meeting the sustainability demands of brand owners and dealing with rising raw material and energy costs that are driving raw material reduction and production efficiency improvements.
