The flexible (converted) plastic packaging market will experience a considerable degree of change over 2012-2022, according to a new Visiongain (www.visiongain.com) report. The emerging markets will experience strong growth and this will be driven by an increase in disposable income. Flexible plastic packaging is also cost effective and will show good penetration of the rural areas within these developing markets. There will also be an expansion of competition due to low production costs, and the influx of multinationals. The developed markets are expected to suffer from declining demand and this will get worse as increasing consolidation has a damaging effect on flexible plastic packaging demand. Visiongain has determined that the value of the global flexible plastic packaging market in 2012 will reach $137 billion.

Visiongain consulted with an industry expert and a full transcript from this original interview is included in the report.
