The demand for flexible packaging is still on the increase as these pack formats are light in weight, adaptable to innovation, and carry a lower carbon footprint. Ever increasing demand for this flexible packaging has prompted major companies to enter this market primarily through inorganic channels, as new capabilities would take time to be developed. This initially fuelled the consolidation drive in the global flexible packaging market.
PE/VC activity increased significantly from US$40.5 million in November to US$522.5 million in December.
