December 22, 2015
By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Plastic Packaging Market in Europe 2015-2019” report to their offering.

The analysts forecast the plastic packaging market in Europe to grow at a CAGR of 3.27 percent over the period 2014-2019.

The plastic packaging market is segmented into two based on product type: Rigid plastic packaging and flexible plastic packaging. The rigid plastic packaging segment accounts for larger share of the market. The end-users of the plastic packaging are spread across multiple industry verticals. The major end-users are the food and beverages, personal care, pharmaceuticals, and healthcare sectors.

One of the key trends set to emerge in the market during the forecast period is the growing consumer preference for flexible plastics over rigid plastic packaging material. Flexible plastic packaging materials are 80% lighter in weight than an equivalent rigid plastic material, and are also cheaper to manufacture.

According to the report, one of the key factors that impacts the market positively is the demand from the pharmaceutical and healthcare sector. The growth of this sector is pushing the demand for plastic packaging for pharmaceuticals and medical devices.

Further, the report states that rising operational costs is one of the challenges faced by the market because of the volatile prices of raw materials and high energy costs. Costs also increase because of the expenses involved in the procurement of raw materials, difficulties in their supply, and rising energy costs affecting the production and recycling processes.
