COVID-19 Impact:

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negligible effect on the global returnable packaging market. High demand from customers and changing priorities of food suppliers and brands can work favorably for the market. Launch of food delivery mobile applications and ordering from home owing to changes in customer habits can drive the demand. Returnable packaging is used in canned and packaged goods owing to their huge demand. Refill packages of personal care products with low weight and parcel size will be prioritized in the market. Lightweight products coupled with brand owners improving packaging to prevent theft or counterfeiting can bode well for the market. The focus on less developed nations as well as westernization of customers can drive demand for returnable packaging.

Industry Trends:

Returnable packaging solutions are expected to stay in the wake of the pandemic and soaring costs of raw materials. Sustainability and awareness of customers and clients can drive its demand among manufacturers. Use of recycled plastic content without compromising on material performance is estimated to be in high demand among end-use industries. Productivity ratio and need to rein in inflation can drive the market growth comfortably.


On the basis of material, the market has been segmented into wood, plastic, metal, and others. Under the material segment, plastic accounts for the largest market share. Plastic returnable packaging is preferred due to their extensive flexibility, reusability and cost effectiveness. The use of high-density polyethylene and polypropylene for manufacture of pallets, drums, crates, and IBCs can bode well for the segment. The segment can net huge returns over the forecast period due to strong chemical and weather resistance. On the other hand, the metal segment is deemed to attain a high demand due to higher sustainability compared to plastic.

On the basis of product type, the market has been segmented into drums & barrels, pallets, crates, bottles, intermediate bulk containers (IBC), dunnage, and others. IBC containers are expected to dominate the product type segment of the market. It is also expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Rising demand from various end-use applications like food & beverages and petroleum & lubricants can spur the segment growth. IBCs are preferred due to its low cost and high durability.
