Global Pouch Forum 2016 Proceedings
The future is bright for flexible packaging and pouches. Flexible packaging - worth $210 billion - now accounts for a quarter of the world’s total $800 billion market. That’s been a remarkable 30% growth in dollar terms in just five years and the forecast is for increases that will outpace many countries’ GDP.
According to leading research firm Smithers Pira, the global flexible packaging market (industrial and consumer) is expected to rise 3% a year to $248 billion by 2020. Pouches are the fastest-growing segment in flexible packaging, accounting for close to $10bn of the total.
Benefits of Pouches
- Flexible plastics are lightweight, resource- and energy-efficient, and often cost less to produce
- Because bags and pouches weigh less and take up less room, they save on transportation and storage costs.
See what experts from both the packaging and the CPG communities are saying about pouches’ advantages and their rapid growth throughout the world in these proceedings from the 19th annual Global Pouch Forum.
