Flexible materials packaging

By 2016, the global flexible packaging market is expected to be worth more than $70 billion as brands move to replace metal cans, glass, and plastic bottles with low cost, lighter weight alternatives.

Flexible packaging utilizes materials such as plastic film, paper, metallized films, and aluminum foil to protect and preserve products, with the final packaging often the result of several different processes.

BOBST has well over a century of experience in the technology used to produce flexible packaging, including in gravure printing, flexo printing, metallizing, coating, and laminating.
