Flexible packaging

Flexible packaging

Flexible packaging represents one of the largest and fastest growing segments for polymer materials driven by the substitution of both traditional materials (paper, glass, tin, etc.) and rigid plastic packs on the basis of both cost and functionality. Flexible plastics packaging now fulfils a vital role in all markets around the world in terms of providing protection and preservation of food, consumer and industrial goods within the supply chain, delivering information and functionality to the consumer and contributing to sustainable packaging solutions.

The sector involves a wide variety of businesses, strategies and technologies with business models constantly evolving as players look for competitive advantage through scale or technology differentiation. Growing pressures from the brand owners to demonstrate sustainability is driving new product developments and material innovations to deliver thinner, stronger products, while rising raw material and energy costs provide an even greater impetus for packaging producers to reduce material usage.

For over 25 years AMI has been analysing the technical and market trends for flexible packaging films in Europe and worldwide with its particular areas of strength in the understanding of the use of polyethylene materials (LDPE, HDPE, LLDPE, metallocenes, EVA, etc) in flexible film applications and the development of the BOPP film industry globally. Through its programme of proprietary research supported by its global database of cast and blown film extruders and its series of international conferences, AMI can offer its clients in-depth knowledge and understanding of these segments.

AMI's data and expert knowledge can also be tailored to address issues of specific interest and concern to our clients and AMI's consultants regularly undertake customised market studies in flexible packaging markets. Our expertise and extensive knowledge base also makes the company well placed to support investors in merger and acquisition searches, commercial and technical due diligence and feasibility studies.
