Global Rigid Transparent Plastics Market is valued at approximately USD XX billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than XX% over the forecast period 2023-2030. Rigid Transparent Plastics are a type of plastic material that has a high level of transparency and rigidity. They are commonly used in various applications where transparency and durability are important, such as in packaging, automotive, construction, and healthcare industries. Rigid Transparent Plastics are made from various types of polymers, including polycarbonate, polypropylene, polyethylene terephthalate (PET), and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). These materials offer excellent strength, chemical resistance, and optical clarity, which makes them ideal for a wide range of applications. The demand for Rigid Transparent Plastics is increasing due to their lightweight, high-performance, and eco-friendly properties. The major driving factors for the Global Rigid Transparent Plastics Market are growing demand from various end-use industries and increasing consumer awareness and demand for sustainable materials. Moreover, the growing demand for consumer electronics and growing demand for food packaging are creating lucrative growth opportunities for the market.
Rigid Transparent Plastics are widely used in food packaging due to their excellent barrier properties, which help to preserve the quality and freshness of food products. The growing demand for packaged foods is driving the growth of the Rigid Transparent Plastics market. According to the Eating Better report of 2020, in the UK, 88% of adults eat ready meals or ready-to-cook foods 2 in 5 people eat ready meals every week. According to Statista, in 2020, the frequency of ready meal consumption is increasing year-over-year in the United Kingdom. Such as, in 2019, 3,410 thousand people were consuming ready meals more than once a week, which surged to 5,328 thousand in 2020. However, the high cost of Rigid Transparent Plastics stifles market growth throughout the forecast period of 2023-2030.
