According to a recent market study published by Growth Market Reports titled, “Global Cannabidiol (CBD) market by product type, source, application, and Region: Size, Share, Trends and Opportunity Analysis, 2017-2027”, the market was valued at USD 395.2 Million in 2019 and is expected to grow at a healthy growth rate of around 30.4 % by the year 2027.

The effect of COVID-19 is anticipated to be strongly felt in the consumer durable industry due to high dependency of different global industries for imports. Moreover, the pandemic situation has led to the closure of several non-essential businesses reducing the demand for consumer durables in the world, which in turn, is impeding the packaging industry. Since the COVID-19 pandemic is diminishing the end- user demand for daily packaging products worldwide, the demand for Cannabidiol (CBD) is reducing in the short-term.
