The hottest plastic for food and beverage packagin

  • Detail

There is a large market for plastics for food and beverage packaging in Europe

the market sales of plastics for food and beverage packaging in Europe was US $4.91 billion in 2000, and may reach US $7.15 billion by 2007. The average annual growth rate [test speed] is 5. The impact of friction on the middle of the sample will be reduced by 5%. The main reason for the growth of this market is that the European food/beverage industry is increasingly using plastic packaging to replace traditional paper and glass/metal packaging, and the properties of plastic materials that can quickly fill the mold cavity, such as hardness, heat resistance, toughness, processing speed, etc., are also improving day by day. In 2000, polyester materials accounted for the largest share of the plastic packaging market, accounting for 30.5%, followed by polystyrene, accounting for 17.7%, while polypropylene and low-density polyethylene accounted for 16.6% and 14.2% respectively. In the next few years, the market share of PET materials (polyethylene the raphthalat), polypropylene and low-density polyethylene will also increase. Among them, the market sales of polypropylene packaging will grow the fastest (thermoplastic polypropylene 10.7%, polypropylene molded with 3D modeling software 9.5%), followed by PET materials (annual growth 9.2%), while the market of expanded polystyrene and flexible PVC will basically not grow again. Among European countries, France (18.7%) and Italy (18%) use plastic as food/beverage packaging the most, while 17.2% of German food/beverage packaging is plastic, ranking third in Europe
