Packaging Grows Despite Economic Downturn
Packaging unit volume sales have enjoyed positive growth from 2006-2011, states Karine Dussimon, senior packaging retail analyst at Euromonitor. Flexible packs remain the dominant pack type due to their high use in the food industry. However, large growth can be found in rigid plastic and liquid cartons. Rigid plastic can be found in bottled water, which is slowly replacing tap water in emerging markets.
