Green packaging market in APAC segmentation by product and geography

Technavio’s report on the green packaging market in APAC analyses the business dimensions and presents a comprehensive breakdown in terms of market segmentation by product, including recyclable packaging, reusable packaging, and degradable packaging. In 2016, the recyclable packaging segment accounted for approximately 78% of the green packaging market in APAC. This was primarily due to the popularity of recycling among vendors and its proven benefits such as energy conservation and reduced carbon footprint. Customers are more familiar and comfortable with recycling because it is a concept they understand, and they have seen its end products in real-time.

Based on geography, the green packaging market in APAC has been segmented into China, India, and others. In 2016, the green packaging market in APAC was led by China and the market in China is predicted to grow at a CAGR of more than 9% during the forecast period.

“China possesses a large population that is still growing. Increasing urbanization and improving access to a retail environment has led to an increase in demand for consumer-packaged goods. This has proportionally increased the demand for packaging. To combat the waste generated due to the huge volumes of packaging, the government and the corporations are carrying out initiatives to promote green packaging. The authorities have also adopted rules and regulations regarding the ecological characteristics of packaging, which are different from norms existing in other countries,” says Sharan Raj, a lead analyst at Technavio for packaging research.
