The Spanish packaging market changes with time

in 2002, the demand for packaging in Spain reached 6.658 billion units, of which flexible packaging and hard plastic packaging were the most popular, accounting for 33% and 24% of the total unit volume respectively

the market of soft drinks, pet food, cosmetics and toilet products is expanding, with the growth of packaging reaching 35.1%, 33.7% and 20.7% respectively, constantly stimulating the development of packaging

soft plastic leads the sales of soft packaging, which shows that everyone agrees that plastic packaging is used for food, beverages and non food. Especially in household goods and post-use paper products, flexible plastics account for more than 90% of the total demand for flexible packaging

hard plastics are concentrated in the food and soft drink industry, accounting for more than 80% of the demand in 2002

Spain's packaging industry continues to merge

the continuous development of Spain's packaging industry stems from international chemical enterprises and emerging new forces

among flexible packaging international enterprises, Amcor and Al can are in the leading position, and have gained a firm foothold by absorbing Danisco, tobepal and tobefil; Alcan consolidated its position in Spain by absorbing Pechiney group of France and Lawson mardon Su of Spain

in Spain, only international enterprises operate liquid cardboard boxes, and its leader is the international TetraPak. In 2002, more than 80% of its share was concentrated in companies operating milk and fruit juice products, such as puleva, Leche Pascual, J garci-a-carrion and hero juver

folding carton industry is characterized by the combination of international and domestic. Among them, the main companies worth mentioning are accran packaging company Alcan Packaging, Chesapeake and SCA, but domestic companies such as dureropackaging and cartonaxes rakosnik have also been relatively active

Saint Gobain, a French company, holds a leading position in the Spanish glass industry through Saint Gobain vicasa, with a 37% stake. Domestic companies are prominent through the vidra group, BA vidrio, vidrier Rovira and Santos barosa. In terms of metal packaging, metal canning of food and beverages has been further consolidated. The main companies are mivisa envases, crownholdings, massilly, Rexam and Pechiney/Al can

in terms of hard plastics, Amcor packaging company in Australia is an important supplier of soft enterprises. It also has a place in Spain through the acquisition of schmalbach lubeca

the trend of consumer lifestyle affects the packaging industry

Spanish consumers who live a rich life and have unique insight spend more and more time on work, so they require high-quality, convenient and functional packaging and are willing to pay extra value

the development of packaging significantly includes the introduction of microwave packaging, such as upright bags and thin-walled plastic containers, which can be directly heated, especially in the catering of finished products

the continuous growth of single parent families makes people's demand for single use packaging grow day by day, especially in small bags of value-added pet food, finished food dishes and soft plastic packaged fast food

the growing consumption has prompted the sales of small packages, especially soft drinks. From 1998 to 2002, the sales of 330ml bottled water and 500ml PET bottled water increased particularly rapidly

flexible packaging is still the first choice for food.

food packaging reached 3.5 billion units in 2002, of which 42% of the sales of flexible packaging ranked first, followed by hard plastic 24.4%, liquid cartons 10.9%, metal 9.1%, glass 6.3%, paper containers and plates 7.3%

it is estimated that flexible packaging will continue to dominate the market in 2007, accounting for 43% of the total packaging units. The reason is that the working principle of 202d exciting valve is shown in the figure. In 2002, soft plastics accounted for 45% of the total amount of soft packaging. Therefore, universal soft plastics continue to be popular

the packaging of candies, packaged baked goods, dairy products and ice cream is an important means of high-capacity application of soft plastic super high-quality rock wool thermal insulation coating for food. Product manufacturers use functionality in the form of zipper covers and vertical to enhance the visual impact on shelves

hard plastics and thin-walled containers have a solid foothold in the food industry

hard plastics occupy an important position in packaged foods, ranking second, thanks to the large-scale invasion of thin-walled plastic containers into yogurt and dessert packaging in the dairy industry. In 2002, the demand for hard plastics in packaged foods was equivalent to 83%

pet bottles are mainly used in oils and fats, while HDPE bottles are mainly used in milk, making a higher profit than the traditional liquid cartons for fresh/pasteurized milk. HDPE bottles also benefit from the expansion of drinkable yogurt products. At the same time, due to the extrudability of HDPE bottles, its sales volume in sauce is also rising sharply. In short, from 1998 to 2002, hard plastic food packaging increased by 28.7%

the largest amount of liquid cartons is dairy products, accounting for 85% of the total sales in 2002. Overall sales are slow due to the decline in consumption of milk, its key end use product, and competition from hard plastics. Liquid carton manufacturers are exploring some unformed product markets, including baby foods, sauces, Oils and fats

other major packaging types used for food include glass and metal. Glass, like liquid cartons, is damaged due to the use of rigid plastic packaging for sauce, but it still plays an important role in canned food together with metal food canning. Glass packaging is also widely used in high-quality packaging such as sauces, sauces, condiments, baby food, edible sauces, etc

glass leads the beverage industry, but pet follows closely.

glass has always been the preferred packaging type in the beverage industry, accounting for 34.7% of non trade sales in 2002. It is mainly used for wine, Baijiu and fruit wine, and its status is protected by tradition and consumer recognition

in 2002, PET bottles accounted for 33.8% of the beverage packaging sold outside the trade, constantly breaking through the soft drink market, especially the bottled water market. PET bottles have an advantage here, with a packaging share of 94.5%

the changing consumption trend and the subsequent requirements for the size of single use packaging have further increased the profits of pet in the soft drink market. PET bottles have been on the edge of alcoholic beverages, but they have recently entered the beer market with the help of Heineken cruzcampo subsidiary

beverage canning ranks third due to its most prominent sales of carbonated beverages and beer. The changing consumption behavior, coupled with the increase in the sales of beer outside the trade relative to the sales of beer inside the trade, has expanded the demand for metal beverage cans as the preferred packaging for outside trade sales, and further weakened the position of glass in the beverage market

the sales of liquid cartons are still very important, and fruit juice, RTD tea and functional drinks have maintained growth; At the same time, the sales growth of fab is also conducive to liquid carton packaging

during the dynamic review period, hot drinking soft plastic is an edge packaging product in the beverage market, because it has successfully replaced the traditional aluminum/plastic sheet for the packaging of fresh coffee

flexible packaging plays a major role in non food, supplemented by folding cardboard boxes

in 2002, flexible packaging accounted for 46% of non food packaging, followed by folding cardboard boxes, accounting for 37%. The advantages of tobacco in packaging volume highlight the importance of flexible packaging and folding cartons

flexible packaging mainly controls recyclable paper products. At the same time, because its innovative small bags provide consumers with alternatives to traditional metal food cans, it performs well in OTC health care and pet food, ranking second

folding cartons have outstanding characteristics in cigarettes and are widely used as secondary packaging in OTC health care, toothpaste, perfume, value-added cosmetics and toiletries

packaging functionality affects sealing

the requirements for easy opening/sealing and convenience will continue to affect sealing. Compared with the more traditional spiral sealing and cap free sealing, the demand growth is particularly prominent

due to the competition between the liquid carton supplier and the resealable rigid plastic bottle that can replace it, the sealing permeability of the liquid carton may be stronger

easy to open system will maintain an important position in metal food canning, especially pet food, fish and soup production. 3. Lubricating oil: regularly fill lubricating products (ordinary lubricating oil can be selected) into machine transmission parts (such as screws) every month, and other value-added product fields, easy to open metal canning has won a great victory. In terms of soft drinks, the prospect of special-shaped caps for bottled water is promising

hard plastic and PET bottles will lead the development of packaging in the future.

from 2002 to 2007, the packaging market in Spain will grow by 15%

hard plastic packaging is developing the fastest, and its unit growth is expected to be 21.4% from 2002 to 2007; Pet is leading, with an expected growth of 31.2%. The main growth area of PET bottles comes from the stable products in the market, such as bottled water and carbonated beverages. Fruit juice/vegetable juice and RTD tea will replace liquid cartons and have a bright future. In terms of hair care products, liquid cartons can replace the original form of HDPE bottles

it is expected that pet and other hard plastic bottles will further make gains in cosmetics and toilet products, and can replace the bulky glass packaging used for skin care products and deodorants. At the same time, the growth of bath products and liquid soap sales is not conducive to bar soap

the growth of HDPE and other plastic bottles will mainly come from the cosmetics, toiletries and household products industry, because these materials have good permeability. Thin wall plastic containers also have a good prospect because of the centralized use of dairy packaging with accurate capacity and the consumption of increasingly refrigerated food

high quality glass has development potential

no matter how successful pet and other hard plastic bottles are, value-added cosmetics, perfume, fruit juice and core food parts including sauce, canned food, bread sauce, baby food, etc. will ensure the continuous growth of glass

tobacco is out, but OTC has the most development potential.

the main industries of packaging development in the future include OTC health care, recyclable paper products and soft drinks

the continuous trend of self medication is mainly conducive to the composite packaging of bubble band packaging/folding carton; The initial growth of sales of liniments and unrestricted products will greatly promote the sales of soft plastics; The continuous improvement of the consumption level of soft drinks, especially bottled water, will ensure the continuous growth of PET bottles

only the packaging of the tobacco industry shows a declining trend, which is related to the decreasing smoking level for health reasons
