Rising disposable income of the population with high demand for consumer goods is driving market growth. Moreover, demands from packing industry and increasing production of lightweight electric vehicles further fuel the growth of the commodity plastics market. The growing usage of plastics in the packaging industry is fuelling demand for commodity plastics, which is driving revenue growth of the market. Polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride, and polypropylene are used to make commodity plastics. Polyethylene terephthalate is used to make soft drink bottles, shampoo and conditioner bottles, liquid hand soap bottles, food containers, and others. This type of plastic is considered safe for food and drink owing to its ability to prevent oxygen from penetrating and spoiling the product inside. On 16 November 2020, S & P Platts, which is the world’s leading independent provider of commodities and energy market information and benchmark prices, announced the debut of first-to-market daily spot price assessments for recycled Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) food-grade pellets in Los Angeles, California.

Antimicrobial additives used in plastics help extend the functional life of the plastics and limit bacteria growth, which causes the plastic to degrade quickly. As a result, increased durability, high suitability, odorless, and stainless are some of the major features that have led to significant growth in the commodity plastics market.

According to regional analysis, the commodity plastics market in Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a rapid rate during the forecast period. This is due to rising population and increased demand for packaged foods. Growing demand for commodity plastics in the packaging, medical, and pharmaceutical sectors, particularly in Asian countries such as China, India, and Japan, is expected to drive market revenue growth during the forecast period. For example, Reliance Industries is India's largest producer of commodity plastics. It has a capacity of 1.16 metric tons per year for PE and 2.7 metric tons per year for Polypropylene (PP). Reliance is India's sole producer of low-density polyethylene.
