Bottled Water Packaging Market Size, Share And COVID Impact Analysis, By Material (Plastic, Glass, Metal, and Others), By Product (Still Bottle Water, Carbonated Bottle Water, Flavored Bottle Water, and Functional Bottle Water), And Regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Region :Global | Report ID: FBI106865 | Status : Ongoing



Bottled water is considered one of the most consumed beverages due to its convenience. Bottle packaging is also convenient for long-distance water transport. Boiling water at home is time consuming and energy inefficient. This is expected to contribute significantly to the growth of the bottled water packaging market. In emerging markets, it has become an icon of a healthy lifestyle.

Recent improvements in logistics have made it possible to use different types of plastic containers such as polyethylene, polypropylene and polyvinyl chloride to produce different forms of packaged water such as bags, cans, pots, barrels and bottles. The packaging of bottled water depends heavily on the weight and ease of use of the bottle, and plastic fulfils that requirement. The packaging process and the development of multiple packaging alternatives are expected to drive the bottled water packaging market over the forecast period.

The advent of cheap, lightweight, non-reactive PET bottles has transformed the packaged drinking water market and made it affordable to the public. Previously, glass bottles were used for distribution, but the product was limited to aristocrats. Strict water quality regulations and the development of the latest water purification technologies have also contributed to the significant growth of the market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Bottled Water Packaging Market

The unanticipated adjustments in global markets as a result of the COVID-19 virus's abrupt spread have caused many significant and minor tremors in businesses of all kinds, including the Bottled Water Packaging market.  The shutdown of manufacturing facilities due to stringent norms of government resulted in a decline in Bottled Water Packaging production capacity.

Strict restriction rules enacted by the World Government to combat the outbreak of the virus created logistic difficulties for the bottled water treatment sector. This created a new bottleneck in the industry, but customers continues to prefer staple inventory. This helped maintain demand for bottled water during the COVID-19 crisis. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic had disrupted everything in the packaging industry as production had ceased, customers have become self-reliant at home, and global trade between multiple countries had ceased. The packaging market was facing a slowdown, significantly hampering the production and demand of the global bottled water packaging market.
