Rigid Containers

The rigid container sector includes bottles, cans, ampules, aerosol containers, aluminum bottles, jars and much more for the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and industrial industries.

Rigid plastic and flexible plastic packaging products account for a large share in the Containers and Packaging market in the U.S. This share is increasing primarily because of the increasing preference of using plastic as a raw material in packages by industrial buyers and the preference for plastic packaging products by consumers. In addition, plastic packaging is replacing glass containers and metal packages, which is, therefore, fostering the demand for plastic packaging products and solutions. One of the major reasons for this increasing adoption is the versatility and durability provided by plastic. Also as plastic containers are lightweight, this helps reduce shipping and handling costs for vendors. The demand for plastic is also expected to be influenced by an increase in the demand for convenience packaged foods by consumers across the country. Hence, the demand for plastic packaging products is expected to have a positive impact on the growth of the Containers and Packaging market in the U.S. (http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/270695-containers-and-packaging-market-in-the-us-2012-2016.html) during the forecast period.
