Market Drivers and Challenges:

1. Increasing demand for sustainable packaging in the personal care and healthcare industry: Manufacturers are worried about the impacts of packaging on the environment and make efforts to minimize, reuse and recycle. Because of the cost-efficiency, increasing energy and resin costs will make these environmentally friendly measures especially appealing.

2. Growing government initiatives towards sustainable packaging: The Department for Industry, Energy & Industrial Strategy is looking to be a front runner in sustainable packaging growth. Together with states and territories and industry, the Australian Government is working to reduce the amount of plastic waste, with an increase in recycling and reducing environmental effects

3. Instability in the price of raw materials: Fluctuation in raw material prices will hinder the overall sustainable packaging market size during the forecast period. The market pattern of raw materials with their present ups and downs is influenced mainly by supply and demand. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, shortage in the supply and demand of raw materials has been seen owing to which the price of raw materials has reached to its peak. Hence, increase in raw material prices will further create hurdles for the sustainable packaging market in the projected period.

4. Lack of awareness of the value of sustainable growth in many developing economies: The most popular respondents are mindful of the environmental effects of packaging, environmental conservation; recycling and the sense of duty are the primary factors for buying. In order to buy environmentally friendly products, the consumers need to have the knowledge or be willing to seek knowledge and information.
