A new report by Visiongain (www.visiongain.com) indicates that the global food and drink packaging market will reach a value of $329.0bn in 2012. Various consumer trends, such as gentrifying societies, environmental awareness, and increasingly busy lifestyles are driving the food and drink packaging markets.

Emerging market growth strongly impacts the food and drink packaging market demand, as higher incomes per capita and increasing urbanization enable and push emerging market consumers to purchase packaged foods and drinks. The food and drink packaging markets in developed countries are unlikely to register strong growth over the forecast period due to economically difficult conditions in many countries and due to the saturation of these markets.

The Visiongain author of The Food & Drink Packaging Market 2012-2022 report comments that "As food products are necessary goods, food packaging markets are expected to maintain their current growth rates in developed markets, and strongly grow in emerging markets. Drink packaging is expected to benefit from the rising income per capita levels in emerging economies, but may lag in developed regions if consumer confidences are further damaged by poor progress in the euro-area crisis."
