Liquid packaging is widely used among end-users owing to its properties such as prevention from loss of moisture, tear, scuff, and puncture resistance. Liquid packaging provides multiple advantages such as longer shelf life, less costs, consumer friendly, capable of retaining freshness of products, less energy consumption, green packaging, and others. Films are the most widely used flexible liquid packaging type used majorly in packaging liquid products. Rigid liquid packaging is the most-widely used packaging type of liquid packaging. It includes cartons, paperboard, glass, cans, plastics, and PET bottles. They are widely used to pack liquid products such as water, carbonated drinks, alcohol, beverages, dairy products, and others. Rigid liquid packaging is the traditional packaging type available for liquid products as it is resistant to impact, moisture, recyclable, and chemicals. Other rigid liquid packaging types are used in various end-use industries such as food & beverage, non-food, and industrial.

The emergence of aluminum packaging films is the primary factor that fuels the growth of the global liquid packaging market. Materials that have traditionally been applicable in food packaging include glass, metals (aluminum, foils, & laminates, tinplate, and tin-free steel), paper & paperboards, and plastics. In addition, an appropriate selection of the packaging material plays an important role in maintaining product quality and freshness during distribution and storage.
The increasing use of plastics in beverage packaging leads the market demand due to low costs of materials such as glass and tinplate. In addition, functional advantages of plastics such as thermosealability, microwavability, optical properties, and unlimited sizes and shapes are another factor that boosts the market growth. Furthermore, the growing consumers' demand for minimally-processed, natural, fresh, and convenient food products, as well as continuous changes in the industry caused by globalization, have led to growth of the market. However, recent continuous replacement of glass bottles with bio-based polymers owing to environmental and economic concerns is a factor that restrains the market growth.
The global liquid packaging market is segmented based on resin type, packaging type, end-user industry, and geography. By resin type, the market is segmented into polyethylene, polypropylene, polyethylene terephthalate (PET), and others (polyester and epoxy). Polyethylene is further segmented into low density and high density polyethylene and polyethylene terephthalate. By packaging type, the market is segmented into flexible liquid packaging and rigid liquid packaging.
Flexible liquid packaging is further sub-segmented into films, stand-up, and bag in box. Rigid liquid packaging is further sub-segmented into carton, paperboard, plastics & PET bottles, glass, and cans.
Carton is further sub-segmented into brick liquid cartons, gable-top liquid cartons, and shaped liquid cartons. Paperboard is further segmented into PE-coated board and tetra pack. By technology, the market is segmented into aseptic liquid packaging, blow molding and form fill seal technology. By end-user industry, the market is segmented into food & beverages, personal care products, pharmaceutical products, household care, and industrial. Geographically, the liquid packaging market is segmented by North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
