World demand protective packaging to rise 6.1% annually

02 December 2014

In a new Freedonia study the world demand for protective packaging is projected to increase 6.1% annually to nearly $27 billion in 2018. This is a significant improvement compared to the 2008-2013 period, when demand lagged in many of the largest protective packaging markets.
Going forward, accelerating manufacturing activity in these regions, coupled with continued strong growth in Internet retailing, will boost demand for nearly all types of protective packaging. Online retail still accounts for a small minority of overall retail sales, but its share will continue to grow rapidly as retailers expand their e-commerce presence and Internet accessibility continues to increase.
