The emergence of different types of plastics in the packaging industry has played a major role in limiting the demand for metal cans and glass jars across the globe and the trend in India and Iran stand no different. The low weight and cost, sturdiness, and high flexibility helped plastics in ruling the industry.

A TMR analyst states that the rising awareness regarding the harmful effects of non-biodegradable plastics on the environment will act as a light at the end of the tunnel for metal cans and glass jars manufacturers.

What are the strategies adopted by metal cans and glass jar manufacturers in India and Iran to overcome the soaring threat from plastics?
