• According to a study by Assocham-EY, the market size of the country's packaging industry is anticipated to reach USD 72.6 billion by FY20 on account of rising population and income levels.

    "India's packaging industry is expected to witness an outstanding growth during 2016–21, and expected to touch USD 72.6 billion by FY20," it said. The industry was USD 31.7 billion in 2015.

    "Rising population, increase in income levels and changing lifestyles are the key factors driving the growth," it said. It said that boom in e-commerce and organised retail will enhance the growth of plastic packaging and per-capita consumption in the years to come.

    Fast-moving consumer goods is one of the primary growing segments in the retail sector and is also one of the biggest end users of the packaging industry, it said adding that pharmaceutical is yet another major user of the packaging industry.

    "Pharmaceutical packaging has now become a foremost part of the drug delivery system," it added.
