The MRFR analysis reports predict that the “Sustainable Packaging Market Research Report By Packaging Type, Material, Process and Region - Forecast Till 2030” The sustainable packaging market was estimated at USD 336.7 billion in 2021. The market for sustainable packaging is anticipated to increase from USD 371.4 billion in 2022 to USD 737.6 billion in 2030, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.30% from 2022 to 2030. The main factors boosting the market growth for sustainable packaging are increased environmental concerns brought on by packaging waste in landfills, severe limits on the use of single-use plastics, and increasing consumer awareness of sustainable packaging.

Due to growing consumer awareness of the drawbacks of using single-use, non-biodegradable plastic products for food packaging, the market for sustainable food packaging is growing. The environment suffers from the extensive usage of single-use, non-biodegradable plastic packaging materials.

In a landfill, plastic takes hundreds of years to decompose. It will continue to degrade the environment throughout the course of that time, eventually putting the lives of people, animals, and plants in peril. For instance, according to a report by the World Economic Forum, at 52% and 56%, respectively, Austria and Germany are the global leaders in recycled garbage. Additionally, Wales and other countries have strong standards for recycling. Wales wants to have zero waste by the year 2050, whereas the EU is considering establishing a 2030 target of at least 65%. Therefore, it is projected that over the coming years, rising consumer awareness of the dangers of utilising plastic materials for food packaging will drive the market CAGR.
