Increasing focus on reusing materials and high demand from various end-use sectors are driving reusable packaging market revenue growth

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, November 25, 2021 / -- The global reusable packaging market size is expected to reach USD 151.80 Billion in 2028 and register a revenue CAGR of 5.5% over the forecast period, according to the latest report by Reports and Data. Reusable packaging market revenue is expected to expand at a rapid rate due to rising demand for sustainable and cost-effective packaging products.

Use of returnable or reusable packaging can drastically reduce carbon footprint from the companies. For instance, businesses which require constant shipment of products between factories and manufacturing sites can use reusable packaging, as single-use corrugated packaging can result in the accumulation of waste material in large volumes in landfills. Unlike single-use packaging that increases energy consumption in manufacturing processes, reusable packaging minimizes use of energy, raw materials, and waste generation. This type of packaging not only reduces emission of carbon dioxide by facilitating efficient space sizing during transportation, but also lowers usage of raw materials.

Outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has put market growth in jeopardy. Various end-use industries such as automotive, aviation, and tourism are facing supply chain disruptions. A large number of companies have also shut down manufacturing facilities, owing to stringent lockdown norms in certain parts of the world. The pandemic has been severely affected international economies, exports, and imports, thereby leading to a substantial drop in production. Also, lack of staff at workplaces is affecting market growth negatively. However, governments of various countries have imposed strict rules to ban the use of single-use plastics. It would help in promoting use of reusable packaging which offers longer lifespan and can be recycled.

Despite several benefits, application of reusable packaging in every industry is not sustainable. For instance, in terms of cost, its application is difficult to justify when return logistics prove expensive due to low volumes or long distances. This type of packaging also requires proactive management as boxes need to be kept for use after every transit.
