Outlook good for consumer packaging

Packaging firm Rexam reckons the value of packaging is back at 2008 levels, and predicts a positive future for the global consumer packaging industry in its latest “Consumer Packaging Report”.

The report cites a shift of emphasis from the larger, mature markets towards emerging markets such as Brazil, Russia, India, China, Mexico, Australia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Nigeria and South Africa.

Chief executive, Graham Chipchase, said: “Consumer packaging is not only an essential component of modern living, but it makes a positive contribution to a sustainable society.”
