The usage of PET bottles was increasing over the review period, with volumes used also expected to continue increasing over the forecast period. This is because PET bottles are seen as a very capable pack type in terms of being flexible enough to be moulded into any shape as well as being more durable and more cost-effective than glass bottles, for example.
With the economy opening up to an extent in 2021 as the country’s vaccination programme was being rolled out, foodservice consumption saw strong growth in 2021. However, given the sharp drop in packaging unit volume sales in the foodservice in 2020, when the pandemic first hit Canada, most specifically in the form of foodservice closures, sales are not expected to return to pre-COVID-19 levels until 2022.
Bubly, the PepsiCo flavoured bottled water brand, announced in 2019 that it would be eliminating the use of plastic bottles for its products, which would, in future, be packaged solely in metal beverage cans. It began to implement this packaging switch from 2020.
In 2021, the Canadian government published and opened up for public comment and critique draft regulations that aim to prohibit the application of some single-use plastics in the country. These regulations lay out how the country plans to ban the manufacture, sale and import of certain single-use plastic items, including checkout bags, cutlery, foodservice ware made from or containing problematic plastics, ring carriers, stir sticks, and straws.
The above-mentioned draft regulations do not seem to have any immediate repercussions in terms of the usage of plastic bottles. However, the Canadian government is committed to ensuring that, by 2030, all plastic packaging in Canada will contain at least 50% recycled content, achieving an ambitious recycling target of 90% for plastic beverage containers.
