PACK SMART – Innovations & solutions: Everything you need to know!

For Véronique Sestrières, Exhibition Director, “EMBALLAGE 2012 will be an amazing place, enhancing all types of intelligence prevalent in the packaging industry.”

More than ever before, packaging innovation has become a strategic issue, governing economic progress, for all the user industries. This 40th exhibition will therefore be an exceptional commercial, sourcing and inspirational platform for each user sector.

Growth underpinned by the emerging markets

Global packaging production, estimated to be worth $670bn in 2010, is anticipated to generate $820bn by 2016 according to the latest market research conducted byPira International.

This growth is said to stem largely from urbanisation, investment in construction, the development of the health sector, and the growth of emerging and transitional economies such as China, India, Brazil and certain Eastern European countries. Greater purchasing power in these countries is likely to boost the demand both for household equipment and for consumables and packaging.

The French packaging industry posted some 10% growth in 2010.

European packaging is now potentially “all in one”

Comexposium’s EMBALLAGE 2012 surveyed European consumers in France, Germany, Italy and Spain with the help of OpinionWay in May 2012. Packaging seems to solve all the paradoxes: it can be both “sexy and virtuous” for 65% of Europeans, “economical and eco-friendly” for 92%, and “beautiful and useful” for 65%.
