LONDON, January 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Despite the recent global economic slowdown, the growth in flexible plastic packaging demand has still been relatively higher than some of its competing materials. The growth in the market has also been supported by a shift from rigid to flexible plastic packaging market due to a number of reasons including its intrinsic characteristics. Meanwhile, on the downside, a number of government initiatives have been taken to limit the use of flexible plastic packaging products. This has a negative impact on the flexible plastic packaging industry and its end use sectors.
Going forward Commodity Inside anticipates that emerging markets, particularly emerging Asia will continue to support the growth. China which has been a major driving force behind the growth will show some signs of deceleration due to its softening economic growth. Whilst growth in other developing regions such as Middle East & Africa, and Latin America will remain almost stable. Growths in mature economies such as North America will also slowdown due to a number of factors including maturity in the packaging industry. On the other hand demand in Europe will remain subdued due to weak economic performance in the eurozone, fragile economic conditions in various eurozone countries, Russia-Ukraine conflict etc.
Commodity Inside expects that in value terms, flexible plastic packaging market is expected to slow down mainly as a consequence of fall in raw material costs. Drilling down further, food sector will continue to be a major consumer of flexible plastic packaging over the next 10 years.
