FPA releases '2006 state of the industry report'
Data on the economic and financial health of the flexible packaging industry is available in the Flexible Packaging Assn.’s (www.flexpack.org) “2006 State of the Industry Report.”
It focuses on what the FPA refers to as the “value-added” segment of the estimated $21.8 billion flexible packaging business. “The value-added segment is estimated to be $17 billion and adds significant value to flexible materials, usually by performing multiple processes,” says an FPA press release. Survey information used to develop the report came from 109 converters and suppliers.
The report analyzes key issues, including sales and utilization levels, profit trends, spending plans, mergers and acquisitions, exports/imports, growth market projections, and end-use details. It also provides FPA Annual Meeting presentations, as well as an outlook on global energy demand extending to 2030.
