South Africa Packaging Market Drivers

Economical, durable, portable, and lightweight are the key characteristics boosting the usage of rigid plastics across sectors. While rigid plastic packages are mostly preferred due to low cost, they also offer ample convenience to consumers. Moreover, growing environmental awareness and a rising urban population who are moving towards more sustainable packaging are driving the usage of paper and board packaging. The emergence of new sustainable and efficient flexible plastics, such as recycled plastics, is also expected to gain traction in the future.

South Africa Packaging Market Segments

The key segments in the South Africa packaging market are rigid plastics, rigid metal, paper and board, flexible packaging, and glass.

Rigid Plastics: Rigid plastics were used significantly in the non-alcoholic beverages industry. The increase in on-the-go consumption and the desire to consume in portions drive the usage of PET bottles for their convenient storage options.

Rigid Metal: Rigid metal was moderately used in the alcoholic beverages industry. Metal packaging in non-alcoholic beverages is largely driven by its convenience features such as small size, as well as eye-catching pack designs to draw consumers’ attention.

Paper and Board: Paper & board packaging is popular for its portability and convenience in the non-alcoholic beverages sector. Recyclability and decomposability make paper-based packaging comparatively more sustainable than other materials.

Flexible Packaging: The usage of flexible packaging material will continue to be driven by hot drinks in the future. The rise in demand for feminine hygiene products will foster the growth of flexible packaging through 2026. 

Glass: Glass packaging in the food industry is expected to grow with high demand from sectors, such as syrups & spreads and seasonings, dressings & sauces, through 2026. Moreover, high demand from the haircare sector will also contribute to the growth of glass packaging in cosmetics and toiletries.
