COVID-19 Impact

The onset of COVID-19 hit the sustainable packaging market industry severely, causing huge revenue losses to end-users like personal care, food & beverages, and pharmaceuticals. Though the fresh food & beverages demand was significant during 2020, the market faced severe revenue losses.

Also, the coronavirus-driven lockdown halted the production of several key raw materials in the global market, which led to various problems relating to obtaining raw materials, attracting workers from quarantines, and deliver end products. However, the sustainable packaging market is rapidly returning to normal, witnessing the steadily increasing demand. Increased production activities and demand for storage & distribution applications are further estimated to offer robust market opportunities.
