Plastic Bottles - Recent Price Trend

In the three years to 2018, the price of plastic bottles has been decreasing at an estimated annualized rate of 2.8%, primarily due to falling input costs as a share of revenue. In particular, the price of plastic materials and resin, a major component in bottle production, has been outpaced by rising sales, allowing suppliers to lower prices in the face of strong market competition.

Plastic Bottles - Total Cost of Ownership

The total cost of ownership for purchasing plastic bottles is low. Plastic bottles are typically purchased by a buyer and then used in preparation to be sold to consumers as a one-time purchase. Buyers usually do not own plastic bottles for a long period of time, except when kept in inventory. The most significant associated costs are related to transportation, which can impact the overall cost.
