Flexible and Rigid Packaging Products: Brazil

After searching for several hours through market research websites, industry-related databases, and reliable media websites, we were unable to obtain or triangulate the market size of flexible and rigid packaging products for liquids in Brazil. We have provided some helpful findings concerning the country's packaging industry.

Brazil's Flexible and Rigid Packaging Products Market

Research Strategy

To obtain the market size for the Brazilian flexible and rigid packaging products for liquid, we searched market research websites, industry-related databases, and media websites (such as Global Market Insights and PR Newswire) for the Brazilian market size-specific to flexible and rigid packaging products for liquid; however, we found no relevant information. We identified a paywalled report by Mordor Intelligence, which contained information about the Brazilian plastic packaging market analysis by type of plastic such as rigid plastic and flexible plastic. We also searched through publications and press releases by the Brazilian Flexible Plastic Packing Industries Association (ABIEF). Unfortunately, the information contained in their database is available to registered members only.
Also, all attempts to identify reports containing the market size for the flexible or rigid packaging products for Brazil proved abortive.

Next, we tried to find the size for the market size for the flexible and rigid packaging products for liquid specific to the South American or Latin American region. Through this strategy, we hoped to use any available percentage share for Brazil to triangulate the market size. Through our search, we identified a Pack World report about the Latin American packaging industry. However, the report contained no valuable information about the Brazilian flexible and rigid packaging products for liquid. We also found another report by Mordor Intelligence, which contained information about the Brazilian plastic packaging market analysis by type of plastic such as rigid plastic and flexible plastic.

Furthermore, we expanded our search to the global level; We hoped to leverage on any data about Brazil contained in the global reports to triangulate the market size for the Brazilian flexible and rigid packaging products for liquid. Our search yielded positive results as we identified a couple of reports on the global market size for the flexible and rigid packaging products for liquid from market research experts such as Industry Arc, Cision PR Newswire, Market Watch, and Markets and Markets. Unfortunately, the piece of information about the Brazilian flexible and rigid packaging products for the liquid market contained in these reports was behind paywalls. Also, the piece of data made free by the reports was not enough to triangulate the required market size.

During our search, we identified a report by Transparency Market Research about the global rigid packaging market. The report also did not contain enough information to triangulate the size of the Brazilian rigid packaging market. As a result of roadblocks encountered, we were unable to triangulate the Brazilian flexible and rigid packaging product market size. Instead, we have provided some helpful findings into the flexible and rigid packaging product market for Brazil, the region, and the globe at large.

Research Strategy

To find the aspects, characteristics, and companies that are impacting, influencing, and affecting growth in the flexible and rigid packaging products industries, we researched market reports for these industries, as well as related industries, such as the food packaging and food and beverage metal cans industries. These market reports provided overall insights into the global industries and the factors of projected growth. However, they did not provide specific details as to the breakdown of types of foods and liquids these packaging solutions are used for; it is possible that these application breakdowns would be available in the pay-walled full market reports.

The market reports provided lists of major companies in these industries, which we researched through their company websites, press releases, and news articles. We paid special attention to companies with locations in Brazil and those that specified food packaging rather than beverages packaging, highlighting their companies' initiatives to capitalize on the growth factors outlined in the market reports.
