Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Flexible Packaging Market in Latin America 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Flexible Packaging Market in Latin America: Amcor, Bemis, Printpack and Sealed Air

The other prominent vendors are: Berry Plastics, Constantia Flexibles, Coveris, Innovia Films, Mondi, Sonoco and WestRock

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Rising demand for high-barrier flexible packaging materials is an emerging trend in the global flexible packaging market. These high-barrier resins have specialized coatings and laminated structures that provide better protection against factors such as moisture and oxygen, thereby prolonging products' shelf life. Some of the most popular high-barrier plastics used in the development of this type of packaging include biaxially-oriented polyethylene terephthalate (BOPET) and ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH). Bayer MaterialScience, a global polymer company, showcased a new aliphatic isocyanate hardener, whose adhesive formulations for composite films adjust quickly at external environment temperature and are useful in food packaging.”

According to the report, increased demand from the packaged food and beverage companies for a number of packaging products and solutions with unique designs will help meet the increased production requirements and create product differentiation, enabling them to stay ahead of their competitors.

Further, the report states that political uncertainties in countries like Brazil and Chile have also resulted in weakened economies and is expected to create further negative influence on the packaging industry.
