The over-exploitation of natural resources has led to severe environmental degradation. The burning of fossil fuels is the cause of all kinds of pollution – water, soil, & air. The massive amounts of waste generated from households, commercial units, logistics, & packaging further destroys nature. Returnable packaging can help reduce packaging waste from logistics, transportation, storage & warehouses. Returnable packaging solutions are reusable & recyclable, and they can be repurposed according to logistical needs. The reusable & recyclable properties allow the use of the same material for multiple products & multiple trips, facilitating the reduction in the amount of packaging waste generated every day. The adoption of returnable packaging solutions also helps reduce operational costs in the long term and allows regulatory compliance with sustainable development guidelines of the authorities. Government initiatives to encourage sustainable development, increasing adoption of sustainable packaging solutions by market players to reduce operational costs, and growing compliance rate will contribute to the growth of the returnable packaging market. Adoption of returnable packaging requires return trip costs as the packaging has to be acquired from the consumer and delivered to the supplier. The inspection and monitoring of the returned packaging for any damage also adds to the costs. Returnable packaging materials also demand extra storage space, making returnable packaging an expensive endeavor in the initial stages. The costs of a return trip, storage & restoration of damaged packaging can hamper the growth of the global returnable packaging market.

Competitive Strategy

To enhance their market position in the global returnable packaging market, the key players are now focusing on adopting the strategies such as product innovations, mergers & acquisitions, recent developments, joint ventures, collaborations, and partnerships.

• Nefab Group AB, a significant market player in the returnable packaging market, partnered with Corruven Canada Inc. FiberFlute, eco-friendly returnable packaging material, was created due to this collaboration. FiberFlute is made of paper-recyclable solution and is purely based on fiber. This alternative to plastic and foam-based returnable packaging makes it a sustainable option with the added benefit of minimized costs. It offers complete protection to the packaging contents as the material used to produce FibreFlute can absorb more shock than other plastic-based packaging solutions. It resists multiple drops and is compatible in both arid and humid conditions.

Market Growth & Trends

The massive population of China and India is driving the consumer demand in the market for various goods ranging from automotive, consumer goods, and pharmaceuticals. This upsurge in demand will lead to massive output of packaging waste. The single-use packaging system is not reusable and is disposed of in landfills. Open landfills are harmful to the soil, water & air in the surroundings. The non-biodegradable nature of single-use packaging materials further aggravates the negative environmental impact. The packaging waste enters the water bodies and is consumed by humans in the food chain in the form of microplastics. Returnable packaging is a sustainable option that will reduce the amount of waste produced every day. The growing population of India, coupled with the rising disposable income of the Indian consumers, is increasing the demand for consumer goods in the food & beverages, automotive & personal care markets. The e-commerce boom has diverted the demand mainly through online platforms that are more convenient than brick-and-mortar. The growth of online delivery platforms is creating a demand for sustainable packaging and logistical solutions. The previously mentioned factors combined will contribute to the growth of the returnable packaging market.
