The increasing use of compostable, recyclable, and biodegradable packaging materials showcases a brands shift to eco-friendly practices that is significant in attracting consumer attention.

As per Mario Abreu, VP Sustainability, Tetra Pak, more than 90 % of the consumer today look for environmental logos on packaging solutions while shopping and ratings by credible agencies help customers to increase faith in the brand, and indeed raise the brand valuation. Moreover, brands are also shifting towards more sustainable packaging solutions such as indefinitely recyclable aluminum cans amidst the war against plastics.

Innovation in Packaging Design to Drive the Market Growth
Packaging design plays a pivotal role in the industry by pleasing customers and boosting sales. Besides, it helps the brand owners to minimize waste and product loss. Personalizing packaging solutions has become the topmost trend for the brands as consumers love attractive & personalized packaging that helps brands to increase their profits.

Attractive packaging designs packaging designs and graphics have a crucial role in making a visual appeal to the customers. Thus, beverage brands use appealing and customer-centric graphics to evoke in order to increase their customer base along with better brand recognition. For instance, in 2019, Johnnie Walker, a renowned alcoholic beverage brand, introduced Game of Thrones (GoT) edition ˜White Walker Scotch Whisky to attract massive GoT fan base to purchase its product.

These brands include Brewery Ommegang, which has released more than 10 GoT beers with some of them paying homage to prominent characters of the show.

Therefore, it is strongly believed that innovation in packaging solutions will remain amongst top growth trends for the industry.


Soaring demand for effective packaging solutions to drive the market demand
An effective and efficient packaging solution has always been the priority of the beverage industry. Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages packaging materials play a crucial role in preserving the flavor and contents of the beverage product. Being organic in nature, beverages are highly susceptible to the attack of oxygen and get spoilt in the process. Thus, an effective packaging solution offering high oxygen barrier is of great importance in the Beverage Packaging industry. Continuous research and development activities and trials of new materials are being carried to develop new packaging materials. For instance, PEF (polyethylene furanoate) is being considered as effective for beverage packaging instead of PET (polyethylene terephthalate) as PEF offers higher gas barrier for carbon dioxide, oxygen and water vapors along with the benefit of a significant reduction in Greenhouse gas emissions in its production as compared to PET. Moreover, beverage brands are coming up with new premium products that make preservation of contents even more important to maximize the profit and retain their premium customer. Thus, the growing need for effective packaging solution is driving the market growth.

Especially, in the case of fragile beverage containers such as glass, the need for effective packaging becomes more important as such fragile materials are exposed to high risk of damage in transportation. Single-serve packaging solutions makes it easier for customers as well as beverage brands to transport and keep their products ready to consume, instead of transporting the beverages in bulk size containers such as drums. Thus, the ease & flexibility in transportation offered by different Beverage packaging solutions boost the market growth.


Regulatory changes and ban on single-use plastics to Confine the Market Growth

Brands are opting for relatively expensive materials such as metals and glass instead of plastics amid single-use plastic ban. This is expected to increase the cost of beverage packaging as well as end-product affecting the consumers pocket.

For instance, Coca-Cola has initiated several new programs that are expected to create a change in packaging solutions in different parts of the World. In Sweden, it has launched new labels denoting 100% rPET (recycled PET) bottles to encourage the consumers to recycle the bottles and create a circular economy for plastic packaging.

The implementation of stringent regulations such as, ban on single-use plastics is expected to hamper the market expansion in the region. The European Parliament has voted out for a ban on single-use plastics by 2021 and has focused on generating a circular economy for the benefit of European citizens.

North America is expected to grow steadily over the forecast period, dethroning Europe region as the second-largest region in the beverage packaging market.

Major consumers in the region include bottled water, beer, coffee, soft drinks, dairy products, energy drinks, juice, sports drinks, tea, and wine & spirits. The growth in the region is also expected to be hampered by the changing regulatory policies on the use of plastics. The ban on plastics is relatively complicated in the United States with only a few states such as California, Oregon, and Hawaii banning plastics bags and a few states are set to ban the same from 2020 or 2021. However, there is strong opposition from the plastics manufacturers thus the federal government is skeptical of imposing a ban on single-use plastics. Instead, the government is focusing on creating a circular economy that would benefit both consumers as well as manufacturers in the long run. Canada, on the other hand, is set to impose a ban on single-use plastics by 2021, according to Environment Minister Jonathan Wilkinson.
