Analyse global trends in flexible packaging to identify growth opportunities, gain strategic insights and build strong relationships.

Understand the role of flexible packaging in the global packaging market

The global market for flexible packaging has been dominated by the affluent markets of Europe and North America over the last 15-20 years. However, as these mature markets begin to focus on the volume of packaging in use, flexible packaging demand growth in Asia has accelerated in response to growth in food processing and packaged food consumption. Keeping track of both upstream and downstream global market trends while trying to maximise added value is essential.

Whether you are a substrate producer or polymer supplier who needs market forecasts, a substrate converter looking for new product opportunities, a flexible packaging company needing to make informed choices on different packaging formats or a waste handling company providing end of use solutions, our dedicated subscription services and regional supply/demand market services help you make better decisions and reduce business risks.
