Executive Summary

This Key Note Market Report examines the plastic packaging industry in the UK. In 2013 the apparent total market, including imports and minus exports, experienced a setback after declining in value by 7.3% from the previous year at manufacturers’ selling prices (msp). Nevertheless, it is important to emphasise that in the wider 5-year review period analysed by this report, the market has ultimately grown at an impressive rate.
