Key Highlights
Even though paper and board constitutes the largest share in the overall packaging space, rigid plastics has been growing rapidly in key markets such as health and beauty. The advantages of plastic seem to still outweigh the challenges the material faces in the form of environmental concerns and costs.

The UK's food culture is evolving mainly due to exposure to varied cuisines as people travel more, and by immigration. Even though most of the change is still concentrated in the cosmopolitan areas, the volumes derived are high.

Challenging macro-economic trends have forced customers to look for value for money options in almost all grocery purchases. Canadean's survey shows that 13.4% of the total consumer market sales were made due to the value for money proposition that the product offered compared to competing products.

Busy lifestyles demand convenient packaging. Canadean's survey shows that people with busy lifestyles prefer products that offer ease of use such as resealable packaging, single-serve packaging, or in-pack cooking.

Retailers, as well as packaging converters, have shown a strong inclination for lightweight packaging. Lightweighting offers a win-win scenario as it reduces cost as well as meeting regulatory compliance with respect to environmental challenges.
