The world has reached a population of over 7 billion out of which it is estimated that 2.5 billion are of the age group 15-35. This consumer segment is driving the demand for packaging solutions in some of the major countries of the world. This younger generation is also aware of the environmental impact of the packaging materials and has now started demanding green packaging solutions which are safe for consumption and have minimum impact on the environment. This growing conscientious population is expected to drive the growth of the green packing market.   Other factors include the formulation of new regulations by several governments all over the world, for both the private and public sector, encouraging business to reduce their carbon footprints and environmental impacts.

The global green packaging market is estimated at USD 212.1 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 274.15 billion by the end of 2021 which is growing at a CAGR of 5.27%.

Recycled content holds the major share of 92% in 2016, whereas degradable packaging market is growing at the highest rate.

Increasing environmental concern is one of the major factors fueling the demand for the worldwide green packaging market. Owing to this factor, considerable efforts are being made for reduction of toxic waste emissions. Green package results in very less toxic emission and causes less pollution in the form of landfills. Consequently, there is an increasing demand for green packaging to keep the environment clean and pollution-free. Moreover, an increasing number of government's are taking initiatives for a cleaner environment and thus have formulated strict regulations. Manufacturers are now under pressure to use eco-friendly material in packaging and adopt methods that have less adverse impact on the environment.
