Thin Wall Packaging Market Recovers Post-COVID, Reveals MarketsandMarkets™

The global thin wall packaging market size is expected to grow from USD 42.8 billion in 2018 to USD 53.7 billion by 2023, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.64% during the forecast period. The rising demand for packaged food & beverages is expected to drive the growth of the thin wall packaging market.

Injection molding is increasingly being adopted for producing thin wall packages. It is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, while thermoforming is projected to witness a decline in growth. Injection molding technology is expected to gradually replace thermoforming technology for manufacturing thin wall containers. Injection molding of thin wall plastic products refers to a specialized form of conventional injection molding technique that emphasizes on mass production of plastic parts that are comparatively thin and light, thereby ensuring a reduction in the material cost and shorter production cycle. The dominance of the injection molding segment is attributed to numerous benefits, including faster production speed, increased productivity, lower cost of production, and uniformity.
