Global Rigid Packaging Market 2016-2020 -- Manufacturers Focusing on Producing Easily Transported Lightweight Packaging Materials

DUBLIN,IRELAND --(Marketwired - February 17, 2016) - Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Rigid Packaging Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.

The global rigid packaging market is expected to grow at a rate of 5.6% over the period 2015-2020.

The key trend set to emerge in the market is the focus of manufacturers on producing lightweight packaging materials because they are easy to transport.

Rigid plastic packaging materials have certain inherent properties that make them ideal for consumer packaging materials. They are tough, durable, lightweight, easy to transport, and are not brittle like glass. The cost per unit of production is low, and these packaging materials have a wide scope of applications in various industries.

Further, the report states that the key challenge hindering market growth is the increased competition from alternative forms of packaging such as flexible packaging and paperboard cartons. These are lightweight and are gaining popularity among manufacturers and customers because of the low cost involved in their storage and transportation.
