World Converted Flexible Packaging

As Quoted In European Plastics News

Global converted flexible packaging demand will grow 3.5 percent annually through 2013. Gains will be driven in part by cost, performance and source reduction advantages over rigid packaging, and by ongoing developments in high barrier resins and value-added features. The fastest increases will occur in the world’s developing regions.

This study analyzes the 16.4 million metric ton world converted flexible packaging industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by material (e.g., polyethylene, polypropylene, paper and foil), market (food, nonfood), world region (e.g., Asia/Pacific, North America, Western Europe) and for 20 major national markets.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 43 industry players, including Alcan Packaging, Bemis and Amcor.
