Industry Overview of Rigid Plastic Packaging

Rigid plastic packaging represents the utilization of plastic materials, including polypropylene (PP), highly-density polyethylene (HDPE), polyethylene (PET), etc., for packaging new bottles and containers. It is sturdier, heavier, and stronger than flexible packaging. Consequently, rigid plastic packaging is extensively used for wrapping fragile food items that need enhanced protection. These products have recyclable plastic containers with open tops and separate closures, lids, or covers that are usually viewed as nestable food containers. In line with this, rigid plastic packaging offers various benefits, including low cost and longevity. Consequently, it finds wide-ranging applications in several industries, such as food and beverage (F&B), healthcare, agriculture, automotive, personal care, etc.
