Halted Manufacturing Hampered Market Growth During Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic severely affected various industries amid the closure of the manufacturing and production units. The closure of national borders disrupted the supply chain systems and caused lack of raw materials. Further, governments imposed strict restrictions on trading policies, which hindered the organizational performance of the leading players. Also, lack of labor is a major reason to restrict the plastic containers market growth.

Also, the rising use of rigid plastic containers in the food and beverage packaging is estimated to drive the market and propel growth. The increasing demand for plastic containers for packaging personal care products and cosmetics is projected to bolster the market growth in the coming years. The rapidly growing pharmaceutical sector is projected to boost the market growth.
