European market for plastic containers 2008-2024

14 December 2017

According to a new report by Ceresana published in November 2017, the European market of plastic containers will reach a volume of more than 12.4 million tonnes in 2024.
PET packaging already has high market shares in the segments carbonated soft drinks and packaged water. Now, PET bottles and other containers also enter other segments, such as food, fruit juices, and household chemicals (e.g. detergents). Their positive properties are the reason for that: They weigh comparatively little, are recyclable, do not break, and offer high clarity. The gas barrier properties and protection against UV radiation continue to improve. Especially in the segment food, PET containers are a growth market.
