Industry Definition and Segmentation

A plastic bottle is a container with a neck that is smaller than the body and takes a screw-type, snap cap, or other closure. A plastic bottle is made of either high-density or low-density plastic. Water, soft beverages, motor oil, cooking oil, medication, shampoo, milk, and ink are often stored in plastic bottles. The bottles range in size from little bottles to big carboys. The Plastic Bottles industry report comprises segments by plastics (PET, PE, PP, PVC), by end-use (Food & Beverages, Pharmaceuticals, Cosmetics, and Personal Care, Homecare), and region (North America, Europe, South America, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa).

The Asia Pacific Region is Driving the Growth of the Industry

The Asia Pacific region holds the largest share in the market due to the rising demand for bottles in the expanding healthcare sector in China. Moreover, the increasing industrial activities in India are providing a significant thrust to the economy.

The market is being driven by the demand for the product for packaging in various industries. Plastic packaging is becoming popular among customers since it is lighter and simpler to handle. Prominent manufacturers also prefer plastic packaging options due to their cheaper production costs. Due to the never-ending need for bottled water and non-alcoholic drinks, the market for plastic bottles in the beverage industry is expected to rise. Consumers' preference for exceptionally requesting high-quality drinking water is attributed to their fear of illnesses due to drinking filthy tap water and the mobility and convenience afforded by bottled water. Due to a wide range of creative, cost-effective, and ecological packaging options, the demand for plastic bottles and containers is increasing. Plastic packaging has improved barrier properties and can effectively protect the product from moisture and oxygen, which significantly impacts plastic bottles and container growth. The fast growth in disposable incomes, prolonged shelf life, and simplicity of use are the key factors driving the demand for plastic bottles and containers. Despite their modest weight, the likelihood of beverage cans being broken during transit is higher than plastic bottles. As a result, the plastic's small weight has prompted its use in the production of bottles and containers. Due to a lack of corks, more people are using plastic bottles to replace glass bottles, increasing their use in beverage items like wine and juices, which is driving up demand. Plastic bottles are in high order because of their airtightness, improving product stability.

Best Procurement Practices

The global Plastic Bottles industry report by Procurement Resource gives an in-depth analysis of the best buying practices followed by major international Plastic Bottles regions, such as engagement models, contract terms, and buyer and supplier negotiation levers, among others.

Category Management Studies

The plastic bottles are made from different raw materials depending on the functionality and product they will be used to store. High-density polyethene, Fluorine-treated HDPE, Low-density polyethene, Polyethylene terephthalate, Polycarbonate, Polypropylene, Polystyrene, Polyvinylchloride, Post-consumer resin, K-Resin, and Other materials including Bioplastic, Bisphenol A are mainly employed in the production of the containers.

Introduction of PET Bottles, Further Driving the Procurement of Plastic Bottles

The industry is being propelled by using polyethene terephthalate (PET), and high-density polyethene (HDPE) polymers in plastic bottling are growing. Manufacturers favour PET over other plastic packaging goods because it loses the least amount of raw material throughout the manufacturing process. Its recyclability and the ability to customise it with different colours and designs. Recyclable objects have soared in recognition as consumer knowledge of environmental issues has grown, leading to an increase in their demand.  Furthermore, advances in the manufacturing of plastic bottles that can improve internal gas proofing are increasingly being implemented, extending product shelf life without compromising taste, which is likely to boost market development. Furthermore, the expanding trend of the plastic bottle circular economy is expected to catalyse business growth in the following years.

The regional markets for the industry can be divided into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific.

Market Landscape

Plastic bottles are a somewhat competitive market with several prominent companies; few big firms presently dominate the industry in market share. These major players are focusing their efforts on growing their consumer base in other nations, and these businesses use strategic collaboration efforts to expand their market share and profits. The plastic bottles and containers market is highly fragmented, and increased demand for food and beverages will present significant development potential in the plastic bottle industry. As a result, many businesses consider this to be an emerging market.

Key Initiatives by Companies

  • In the multivitamin category, Amcor PLC presented the development and commercialisation of a PET container made entirely of post-consumer recycled content (PCR) resin in February 2020. Ritual, a health meets technology firm that redefined the multivitamin, commissioned the new, transparent bottle in two sizes: 100 cubic centimetres and 150 cubic centimetres.
  • Coca-Cola started in July 2019, and its GlacéauSmartwater, Honest Tea, Chaudfontaine brands, and HBC water (a Swiss-marketed product) will be packaged in recycled polyethene terephthalate (rPET).
