With tomorrow’s resource challenges, packaging has a crucial role to play, particularly in helping to reduce waste in the global food supply and in protecting goods for consumers while complying with ever more stringent regulations for food safety and consumer safety.
At the same time, consumer expectations are driving brands to create packaging that is sustainable, distinctively shaped, hygienic, easy to open, and with excellent graphics. These challenges need to be met while lowering weight and cost by faster production cycle times, down gauging and increasing recyclable material in the packaging to minimize waste and the environmental impact.

Today, even in the most developed supply chain systems such as those in Europe, 4% of transported goods are damaged in some shape or form. Materials used in transport packaging must provide protection and load stability, and offer superior processing characteristics and mechanical properties for product unitization and logistics purposes.
SABIC has a broad portfolio of materials for industrial packaging applications that includes jerry cans, tight & open head drums as well as intermediate bulk containers for non-food packaging ranging from 5 L up to 1,000 L.
As one of the industry leaders, SABIC collaborates with customers to develop material solutions to meet current and future industrial containers’ requirements.
To support customers with changing requirements in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries, SABIC provides innovative materials and processing expertise, addressing important trends in these industries for applications used in the development & manufacturing, in the packaging & distribution and in the administration of pharmaceuticals. Materials used in these applications must be compliant with the various pharmacopoeia and biocompatibility standards, and offer performance features that can help reduce costs and improve patient compliance.
SABIC has a broad material portfolio for agricultural packaging applications generally used for maintaining the nutrition of forage plants such as grass, corn, and vegetables until its needed.
