The global plastic packaging market size is projected to reach USD 320.94 billion by 2027, registering a revenue-based CAGR of 4.0% over the forecast period.

Lack of time and increasing purchasing power of consumers has also resulted in driving the demand for packaged foods and the trend is expected to continue over the forecast period.
