How is plastic packaging under pressure? What is the role of plastic in today’s global packaging industry and what innovations in the space are helping to eliminate the plastic waste problem?
Rosemarie Downie, Head of Packaging at Euromonitor International, said, “There are signs of a continuing shift in the packaging industry from a linear model to one that is more circular. Today, an increasing number of consumers are sensitive to issues of plastic waste and this is impacting their shopping habits. The proportion of those who feel that recyclable packaging is an influential feature in their beverage purchase has risen, yet the proportion of consumers willing to pay more for beverages that are environmentally conscious or eco-friendly remains relatively low.”
