Plastics "In Site"

26-05-22 Plastics market overview

The global plastic market size was valued at 593 thousand of million euro in 2021.

It is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.7% from 2022 to 2030.

The increasing plastic consumption in the construction, automotive, and electrical & electronics industries is projected to support market growth during the forecast period.

Regulations to decrease gross vehicle weight to improve fuel efficiency and eventually reduce carbon emissions are driving plastic consumption as a substitute for metals, including aluminum and steel, for manufacturing automotive components.


The packaging end-use segment held the largest market revenue share of more than 36.0% of the overall demand in 2021. Packaging is a high-potential end-use segment with moderate penetration. Plastic has been an integral part of the packaging industry. Furthermore, the advent of bio-based plastics has also played a significant role in the food, pharmaceutical, and beverage packaging sectors.


Plastics such as Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) and Polycarbonates (PC) are increasingly being used in the packaging of beverages, consumer goods, appliances, toys, and apparel. The packaging of appliances is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for market growth. The demand for packaging for healthcare products, groceries, and e-commerce transportation has increased sharply in the post-COVID period, while the demand for luxury, industrial, and some B2B transport packaging declined, owing to the suspension or slowdown of industrial production.

Moreover, the demand for plastic in consumer packaging is expected to shift drastically towards food packaging, owing to the shutdown of restaurants and foodservice outlets during the pandemic. The stockpile and panic purchases of food, groceries, and other homecare necessities are further expected to boost the aforementioned trend.
