Plastics have come to an indispensable position in the European economy, and the value chain has only strengthened at rapid pace over the last decade.
According to PlasticsEurope, an association of plastic manufacturers, as many as 1.5 million people in the continent are employed in the plastics industry value chain in some way or the other. It isn’t surprising that a large chunk—almost half if some estimates are to be believed—of all plastics produced are consumed in the packaging sector.
Diverse end-use industries notably including food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, industrial products, and personal care and cosmetics continue to utilise the salient characteristics of plastics.
