LONDON, Dec. 18, 2017 — Trends and Opportunities in the Canadian Packaging Industry: Analysis of changing packaging trends in the food, cosmetics & toiletries, beverages and other industries

Download the full report: SummaryPackaging industry in Canada is estimated to grow approximately to 50,000 million units by 2021, registering a CAGR of 1.4%. This growth will be largely influenced by consumers' increasingly hectic lifestyles demanding on-the-go, small-sized packages that facilitate easy handling. Variety-seeking consumers are also inclined towards novel and premium products that come in luxurious packaging to enhance their look and feel. In addition to this, consumers' growing environmentalism will continue to drive the growth of eco-friendly packages in the country.

Canadian packaging industry is characterized by functional, on-the-go, sustainable, and personalized packs. In terms of material, rigid plastics and flexible packaging have gained the most market share with 1.7% and 0.3% gains, respectively, during 2016-2021 because of their light weight, cost-effectiveness, and small pack sizes. These pack materials are used in the soft drinks, dairy, and bakery & cereals categories. On the other hand, rigid metal, glass, and paper & board are forecast to lose shares of 0.9%, 0.7%, and 0.4%, respectively, during 2016-2021.

Rigid plastics accounted for 32.5% share in 2016 and are projected to grow at a CAGR of 2.5% during 2016-2021. It is the preferred material by manufacturers as it helps to protect/preserve food over long periods and is very malleable. Additionally, these packs are cost-effective and lightweight, making them convenient for FMCG products. Food and soft drinks products are the major users of rigid plastics.

Flexible packaging is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 1.6%, with major contributions from the food industry. This growth is largely driven by its low cost, flexibility, convenience, and low carbon footprint compared to rigid plastics. As a result, manufacturers prefer to use flexible packaging for products such as bakery & cereals, dairy, and confectionery for a conveniently packaged, and cost-effective, product.
