The high-density polyethylene (HDPE) packaging market is estimated to be valued at US$34.085 billion in 2018 and is projected to grow further in the coming years. HDPE is a thermoplastic made out of petroleum. It is one of the most widely used forms of plastic. Also used to make plastic containers and bottles to improve the shelf life of products. HDPE packaging also provides solutions for the packaging of chemicals for both household and industrial purposes.

The growing global working population and rising disposable incomes, especially in developing countries, are boosting the demand for convenient and packed food and beverage products. This, in turn, is fueling the use of HDPE packaging solutions which are safe and suitable for items such as milk and juice as they do not transmit any chemicals into food or drinks. Another driver of HDPE packaging market is booming cosmetics and personal care industry. Growing focus on physical appearance and personal hygiene are significantly augmenting the increased demand for personal care products for which packaging manufacturers are providing HDPE packaging solutions in the form of containers/bottles for liquid soap, shampoos and conditioners, bleach and other products. Rising e-retailing trends owing to the growing penetration of smartphones and mobile devices along with internet connectivity is further driving the consumption of personal care products, thus, positively impacting the growth of the global HDPE packaging market. Stringent government regulations regarding environmental sustainability are encouraging the use of sustainable HDPE packaging solutions which will continue to bolster the growth of the HDPE packaging market throughout the forecast period. However, the fluctuations in HDPE prices might lead to a negative impact on the growth of the HDPE packaging market. Moreover, the availability of better substitutes like LDPE also restrains the growth of the HDPE packaging market.
