The German plastic packaging market:
Brisk demand for food and pharmaceutical films

17 Oct 2017 − 

Among the suppliers of plastic packaging producers of films and pouches boast particularly high operating rates for the food and pharmaceutical segment.

EUWID was told that suppliers of transport packaging are expecting increased volumes in the fourth quarter.

Suppliers of food containers say they have good operating rates (aside from seasonal products).

Caps for cosmetics products were very sought after, while caps for beverages were registering the customary autumn slowdown.

Tube suppliers are satisfied with their order levels, but stiff competition rendered the necessary price hikes rather arduous.
