Packaging Industry

As per a report by Ernst & Young, the global packaging industry is US$400 billion and US$500 billion after including the industrial end products. Brazil, Russia, India, and China (BRIC) comprise approximately 30% of the global demand increasing with further development. Main challenges include the macroeconomic environment in recent years, given pressures on consumer spending, and their exposure to fast-moving consumer good (FMCG) producers. Also, the combination of Eurozone economic uncertainty and raw material and energy price inflation has also had a negative impact on packaging producers.
