Overview of the competitive landscape in France’s packaging industry including key companies in each of the packaging material segments and major deals.
Plastic packaging holds the largest share in the French packaging industry. The material’s ability to produce lightweight packages for ease of handling, moulding into various shapes, speedy transportation, and reducing cost helps it to attain prominence.
Wine consumption in France declined during 2007–2012 and this trend is also expected to continue during 2012–2017. This decline is expected to considerably impact the demand for glass bottles, which are usually used for wine packaging. In addition, manufacturers are selling wine in pouches in order to reduce costs.
Convenient and healthier packaging for the elderly will increase in importance as France’s population ages, while the recovering tourism industry will drive demand for traditional French products and, in turn, packaging.
Challenging macroeconomic trends with rising unemployment is driving customers to increasingly shop to a budget, cutting down on impulse purchases and encouraging them to look for value for money options.
Sustainability factors in packaging are under the spotlight. Measures to reduce packaging waste and carbon footprint whilst simultaneously increasing recyclability and reuse are being adopted. The Grenelle Law means the onus is on manufacturers to improve recyclability.
