Diminishing natural resources, global warming, and the impact of plastics on the environment are the major trends influencing consumer demand.
  • Initiatives by environmental groups and public awareness about the environment have increased awareness among users across the world. Consumers are demanding packaging products that cause no or lower environmental impact. Consumers are increasingly abandoning plastic usage, whereas the demand for recycled products is growing.
