Green Packaging Market Size Analysis

According to a research survey conducted by ChemView Consulting, in 2022, the Global Green Packaging Market was worth US$ 2,87,200.0 Mn and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% over the forecast period. The market is expected to hit US$ 4,40,700.0 Mn by 2032 end.

The use of packaging materials and manufacturing processes that have a minimal impact on energy use and the environment are referred to as “green packaging.” Green packaging, often energy-efficient or sustainable, uses recyclable and biodegradable materials.

Solid bleach sulfate, bio-based polymers, biodegradable plastics, and recycled papers are some of the main components utilized in the production of green packaging items.

Market Dynamic


The sector is anticipated to increase due to severe limited single-use plastics and growing consumer awareness of sustainable packaging. The business is expected to expand steadily because of the expanding food and beverage sector, which is using packaging made of recyclable and biodegradable materials more and more.

The market has grown due to a rise in consumer awareness of eco-friendly packaging strategies that employ bioplastics as a raw material across several industries, including FMCG, personal care, and pharmaceuticals.


Due to high production and setup costs, businesses have been hesitant to use green packaging. Additionally, a lack of government activities, particularly in developing nations through recycling subsidies, and a shortage of storage space for recovered materials restrain market expansion.
