Flexible packaging: aluminium and plastic
The European Aluminium Foil Association EAFA published their insights on the market in an extensive press release. Output is expected to grow in 2014 after a stagnant year 2013. Total production in 2013 was 842,700 tonnes, including a decline in the demand for thicker gauges and a moderate growth of thinner gauges, used largely for flexible packaging and household foils. Thicker gauges are mainly used for semi-rigid containers and technical applications.
Flexible plastic packaging is addressed in the online NVC E-Workshop Flexible Plastic Packaging. This e-workshop covers i.a. the functionalities, types of material, processing technologies and applications.
