Dublin, Nov. 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Green Packaging Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Packaging Type (Recycled, Reusable, Degradable), By Application (Food & Beverages, Healthcare), By Region, And Segment Forecasts, 2020 - 2028" report has been added to's offering.

The global green packaging market is expected to reach USD 441.41 Billion by 2028. It is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2020 to 2028. The market for green packaging is projected to be driven by the growing consumer demand for environment-friendly alternatives to non-sustainable packaging products.

Green packaging is witnessing growth due to rising environmental concerns caused by the packaging waste that ends up in landfills, polluting the environment. The packaging types categorized under green packaging are recyclable, reusable, and degradable. They are either used in the same value chain or degraded in nature without releasing harmful toxins, thus assisting companies to reduce their negative impact on the environment.

Recyclable and recycled content packaging is predominant amongst all types of green packaging as it is used on a mass scale. Plastics, paper, glass, and metal are the top recycled materials used for this segment of green packaging. Plastic is the most widely used material as it is cost-effective and provides useful properties, such as waterproofing and durability. The paper segment is witnessing high growth owing to new packaging designs introduced by companies as part of sustainable initiatives.

The market is likely to witness high growth over the coming years in the food and beverages sector as many players in the foodservice industry are switching to paper or compostable materials from single-use plastic cups, lids, closures, and food trays. The healthcare segment largely uses glass bottles and aluminum foil for packaging medicines, which is expected to grow in the forecast period as per the growth of the pharmaceutical industry.
