Rigid packaging

Rigid packaging

Rigid plastics packaging has seen remarkable growth due its unique combination of lightweight, strength, shatter resistance and barrier properties. Fuelled by increasingly sophisticated consumer demands for convenient packaging solutions, and driven by the powerful brand owners and supermarket groups, rigid plastics packaging is continually increasing its penetration versus traditional packaging media. Facilitated by the expansion of centralised retail distribution and technological advancements in polymer materials, food processing and packing, rigid plastics packaging is expanding within many markets, but especially food and drinks packaging.

Products such as blow moulded bottles, dispensing caps and closures and thin wall packaging are able to enhance brand modernity, aesthetics and usability and offer differentiation to drive demand. At the same time the industry faces challenges in terms of meeting the sustainability demands of brand owners and dealing with rising raw material and energy costs which are driving raw material reduction and production efficiency improvements.

Through a series of multi-client reports AMI is constantly analysing the technical and market trends for rigid plastics packaging in Europe and worldwide supported by its global database of blow moulders, injection moulders and rigid film and sheet extruders and its regular contacts with the industry through its programme of international conferences. AMI's consultants are able to offer its clients in-depth knowledge and understanding of these segments which can be harnessed to address specific questions and issues as well as underpin commercial and technical due diligence and merger and acquisition services.
