The Europe flexible packaging market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.36% during the period 2017 - 2022. Germany is set to have the highest market share followed by the UK and Spain. This robust growth is attributed to the overall growth of packaging need in the Latin American region caused by the increase in the market penetration of retail companies. Retail companies have opened many more product lines. Due to larger vertical integration, the retailers have enjoyed more efficient distribution and logistics. This enables the flexible packaging market to grow at a steady pace to help the retail industry in the region.
Increased demand for consumer-friendly products which are lightweight and easily transportable can be considered as a major factor behind Europe's high market share. Growing focus on sustainability, the increased need for extended shelf life, rising standards of hygiene and consumer focus on the ease of use are the core drivers of this market. Flexible packaging has superior barrier capabilities and can effectively protect the product from moisture and oxygen. This is particularly important in the pharmaceutical industry where the integrity of the product is of prime importance. The major challenges in this region are the consequences of the financial crisis on the consumer's purchasing power, rising prices of the commodities and the aging problem of the European population. Although the financial crisis hit the European Union pretty badly but with the help of the ECB and other financial institutions the economy is looking to come out of the economic slump.
