Overview of the competitive landscape in South Africa packaging industry including key players in each of the packaging material segments and major deals.
Shrinking household size in South Africa is leading to an increase in demand for smaller sized packs. The trend for smaller sized packs will increase demand for packaging material, as the amount of pack material required for several small packs is relatively higher in comparison to a single large pack that can hold the same volume of product.
The high rate of unemployment, coupled with growing income disparity, will lead to a rise in the demand for value for money products. This necessitates the need for cheaper packaging formats.
The demand for packaged goods, particularly in the case of Food, is expected to receive a boost from the growth in the organized retail sector in South Africa. A rise in online shopping by South African consumers is further expected to broaden the scope of packaging, particularly as increased use of secondary packaging during transit.
The growing preference for enhanced convenience is driving innovation with manufacturers striving towards the development of better products, in an attempt to stand out in competition. An example of this is the Ready Egg rangelaunched in a 270 ml High-density polyethylene (HDPE) bottle, by Free Range Chicken Company.
With rising consumer awareness, product sustainability has become a major concern for manufacturers, driving innovation in the South African packaging industry. For instance, Coca-Cola launched the sugarcane-based PET bottle in South Africa in 2011 for its Valpre Spring Water brand.
