The German flexible plastic packaging market: customers more cautious at the start of 2022

In February, manufacturers of flexible plastic packaging reported weak demand and presumably high inventories on the customer side.

Supply of standard commodity plastics was "not a problem at all" and the barrier material EVOH was also more readily available, according to EUWID respondents.

The high energy costs remained a major issue in the market. The trend towards more sustainable packaging also continued, with the main focus on the use of mono-materials.
