Description

Some questions answered in the 'Packaging Trends - Ireland' report include:

  • What factors influence the choice of one packaging material over another? – Does durability, ease of transportation, or shelf-life dictate what packaging material is suitable for products?
  • What are the specific requirements of industries when considering packaging? – Are outsourced packaging manufacturers likely to specialise in one area, or operate across many sectors?
  • What legislation governs the disposal of packaging waste? – Both EC and national governments have identified packaging waste reduction as a target, how do operators comply with this?
  • What are key packaging requirements, as regards labelling and product safety? – Contamination is a real risk in many sectors, whilst instructions on use and listing of ingredients are also important considerations.

Due to the wide range of industries in which packaging is a feature (ie all sectors which result in the creation of a physical product), combined with the lack of detail available on packaging sales as a standalone product (furthered by packaging’s status as a cost rather than a revenue stream, notably for companies who package their own products in-house), Specific market size and forecast data is provided for the following packaging sectors only:

  • Paper and board packaging market
  • Plastic packaging market
  • Metals and aerosols packaging market
