Euromonitor International recently published our 2016 Packaging research. Our data confirms a solid performance for packaging in 2015 with global retail demand increasing 2.2 percent in 2015 to reach 3.35 trillion packs. Foods is the largest industry for packaging. In 2015 food packaging was largely shaped by an ongoing snacking trend. This is mainly to the benefit of flexible plastic as commonly used in confectionery, biscuits and baked goods.
