In terms of packaging containers, the original packaging containers for beverages were glass bottles followed by paper composite cans, followed by PET bottles, and now rigid PET bottles are already the largest packaging material for carbonated beverages and non-carbonated beverages. 26.5% of beverage packaging containers, glass bottles have dropped from 28.9% in 1981 to 19.5%, aluminum cans accounted for 39%.

Plastic will continue to develop at a much faster rate than other packaging materials, because many characteristics of plastic are irreplaceable by any other packaging material. The plastic packaging industry has already developed into transportation packaging while occupying the sales and packaging field, and will eventually force the “transport packaging”, which is still mainly metal, to be replaced by plastic.
