The German plastic packaging market:
High temperatures boost deliveries of beverage caps

16 Aug 2018 − 

Most respondents gave positive assessments regarding the current situation on the market for plastic packaging.

EUWID was told that demand for films and pouches was brisk – which was also being fuelled by barbecue products. Demand has softened a little for transport and industrial packaging due to the summer. Food containers for ice cream and other seasonal products are however benefiting from the persistent summer weather.

During the first half, tube suppliers booked gains in the segments of cosmetics and dental products. Suppliers of caps also boasted high operating rates, especially in the sectors for beverages and cosmetics.

This is an excerpt from EUWID's quarterly report on the German plastic packaging market. The complete report will be published in EUWID Packaging Markets 17/2018.
