Plastic Packaging Market in Europe 2015-2019

About Plastic Packaging

Plastic packaging is used in the packaging of F&B, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and consumer products. Plastic bottles and containers are non-corrosive, light, relatively cheap, and can be molded into a variety of shapes and dimensions, making them highly suitable for packaging. Its inert nature and ability to preserve products longer makes it a popular choice in the F&B industry. Plastic packaging is also preferred by customers in the F&B sector because of its esthetic appeal.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One of the key trends set to emerge in the market during the forecast period is the growing consumer preference for flexible plastics over rigid plastic packaging material. Flexible plastic packaging materials are 80% lighter in weight than an equivalent rigid plastic material, and are also cheaper to manufacture.”

According to the report, one of the key factors that impacts the market positively is the demand from the pharmaceutical and healthcare sector. The growth of this sector is pushing the demand for plastic packaging for pharmaceuticals and medical devices.

Further, the report states that rising operational costs is one of the challenges faced by the market because of the volatile prices of raw materials and high energy costs. Costs also increase because of the expenses involved in the procurement of raw materials, difficulties in their supply, and rising energy costs affecting the production and recycling processes.
