European market for flexible packaging

23 December 2014

Analysts at Ceresana expect the European market for flexible packaging, i.e. all types of packaging and materials taken together, to reach a market volume of about 19.2 million tonnes in 2021.
A new study by Ceresana analyses not only packaging for consumer goods sold to end customers in retail stores, but also secondary and tertiary packaging that are used for storage and transport of goods. Also included are heavy duty and industrial packaging, like sacks or flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBC). Other product groups covered in this publication are carrier bags (both made from films and woven) and labels. Included are packaging products made from plastics, paper, and aluminum.
