Returnable Packaging Market by Product (Dunnage, Pallets, Drums & Barrels, Bottles, and Others), by Material (Metal, Wood, Foam, Plastic, and Glass), by End User (Consumer Goods, Food & Beverages, Healthcare, Automotive, and Others), and Region - Global Trends and Forecast Analysis, 2018-2025

Publish Date: February 2020 | Format :PDF/Excel | Category: Consumer Goods | Pages :153

The global returnable packaging market is projected to reach USD 67 Billion by 2025 at a CAGR of around 7% during the forecasted period. Increasing efficiency in supply chains over time and the need to be environment-friendly has resulted in many mainstream companies to concentrate more towards returnable packaging. The range of application of returnable packaging is very wide especially with FMCG companies and its use in new sectors such as healthcare, food, automotive, etc. is continuously increasing since its inception.

With the world’s attention focusing on the benefits of sustainability, coupled with increasing demand of returnable packaging from various end-use industries are primary factors for the growth of the market. Returnable packaging is more robust and cost effective in the long run. It's true that conventional single use packaging is costlier than returnable packaging but by adopting returnable packaging one need not purchase packaging repeatedly. Constant advancements in technology led to up gradation in the returnable packaging market especially in product design i.e. the market has evolved from old designs of wooden containers to the recent fiber drums. However, different environmental guidelines on packaging in different regions of the world is a cause of concern for the growth of the market.

The market itself is highly fragmented and hence many of the top tier players have used considerable strategies such as joint ventures, mergers, forced acquisitions, etc. to penetrate the market deep. Furthermore, high logistics cost and initialization costs are expected to dent the market growth. Even though these costs would cover themselves in the long run, small scale manufacturers would find their margins lessened in the immediate future, hence they might not shift to returnable packaging as easily as the MNC’s, etc. The global returnable packaging market is segmented on the basis of product, material, end user, and region.

On the basis of product, the global returnable packaging market is bifurcated into dunnage, pallets, drums & barrels, bottles, and others. Among these products, the pallet mode of packaging is expected to have the largest market share in global returnable packaging market. Minimal, easy handling along with protection from any sorts of ruptures and also the inherent reusable nature of the pallet makes it a perfect and better alternative to conventional packaging. Therefore pallets leads the other packaging methods in the market. 

Material segment of the global returnable packaging market is divided into metal, wood, foam, plastic, and glass. The plastic segment is expected to have greater growth in the forecast period both in terms of value and volume. Plastics offer a wide range of properties such as its lightweight nature, high versatility, durability, its resistance to water, temperature and also because it's easily available.

Based on end user, the global returnable packaging market report is categorized into consumer goods, food & beverages, healthcare, automotive, and others. In between these, the FMCG companies have considerable advantage over other end-user segments as they are currently ahead of the pack and are expected to do so in the future. Other segments are seeing value in returnable packaging and the major players are transitioning towards returnable packaging whereas FMCG’s companies have been doing it for a longer period of time and therefore have considerable first mover’s advantage along with experience. Their portfolio of bulk food and beverage products are often in need of storage and transportation hence these attributes are a value add because they are tailor made for returnable packaging, hence it is more likely to be an optimal fit.

The returnable packaging market has analyzed across the five regions including, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa with its major countries. Among these regions, Asia Pacific region has the highest growth projected in terms of value during the forecast period. This is mainly because of the population explosion in these countries, the rising income levels of the middle class population and also the drive by their respective governments for “sustainability”. Reducing packaging waste and more industries transitioning towards multi-use packaging systems have made the returnable packaging market have high growth potential. Both FMCG and automotive industries are dominating in terms of their usage of returnable packaging in Europe region and are forecasted to do so in the future.
