The German plastic packaging market:
Brisk competition for barrels and canisters

25 Oct 2016 − 

Producers of plastic packaging are currently well supplied with raw materials.

In the segment for films and pouches suppliers said their delivery volumes from January to September either resembled last year’s level or rose by up to 5%.

Suppliers of transport and industrial packaging increased their deliveries by a small one-digit percentage figure for the period January to September.

IBC gained more than plastic barrels, according to respondents. Canisters are registering a small increase compared to the previous year.
