World Flexible Packaging Market Discussed by Euromonitor International in In-demand Study Now Available at

10 Jun 2015 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Flexible packaging takes the lead in retail packaging worldwide, with volumes rising by 1% as of 2014 notwithstanding challenges in tobacco and more rapid growth for liquid cartons and rigid plastic in food. Capturing around 50% of the global retail packaging, the flexible packaging sector is expected to grow further at CAGR of 2% through to 2019.

Stiffening legislative environment is a substantial threat to flexible packaging in the tobacco industry. However, the versatility of flexible packaging materials in packaged food is expected to allow them to increase significantly as an affordable solution in the Latin American and Asian regions, whilst satisfying demand for better functionality (in packaged food) in Western Europe and North America. Pack sizing and shaping like value pouches in smoking tobacco will likely assist in discovering growth potential.
