Technological Advancements Strengthen Growth Prospects of Returnable Transport Packaging Market, Says Contrive Datum Insights

According to a new market study by Contrive Datum Insights (CDI), the market for returnable packaging is projected to grow healthily between 2021 and 2028.

Returnable Transport Package (RTP) is considered to be extremely safe and effective, which facilitates adoption in many end-use industries such as food & beverage, buildings and construction and chemicals, among others. In addition, these packaging solutions can be reused and recycled, which mutually benefits manufacturers and end users.

In the recent past, there has been an increase in the number of commercial activities – both domestic and international – resulting in a further increase in demand for RTP solutions. Similarly, the increasing adoption of RTP among industrial users in conjunction with project advances will continue to fuel market growth.

According to similar lines, the wide range of availability of different RTP products, each for different applications, such as IBCs, FIBC bags, pallets, drums, layer pads, plastic boxes and bags of different capacities complement market growth. For example, intelligent flexible intermediate container technologies (FIBCs) are gradually replacing corrugated boxes when transporting organic products to developing areas.

“Market participants are focusing on meeting the challenges posed by the lack of infrastructure and the weaker supply chain potential for expanding their profit margins,” said the CDI analyst.
