Flexible packaging

The global market for flexible packaging is forecast to grow at an annual average rate of 3.4% reaching a value of $248 billion by 2020 (1).

The growing demand for more environmentally responsible materials and better recycling will drive demand for thinner, lighter materials and, less waste combined with faster turnaround times, flexibility and optimized costs.

The substrate processing and printing will be more demanding than ever and this is why BOBST, with decades of expertise in printing, metallizing, coating, and laminating, is best positioned to support the industry transformation required by brands and implemented by packaging converters.
