Other formative forces reporting significant market expan- sion profiles include: Brazil and Eastern Europe. Mature markets, such as the United State and Europe, will see relatively static production volumes, with some forecasters saying production could fall by 3 percent. Processed food currently forms the single largest segment for end-use corrugated board packaging, encompassing some 25 percent of all consumption, according to Smithers Pira. Fresh food and produce represents 9 percent and bever- ages 7 percent. Non-food products however still comprise an absolute majority, providing relatively flexible opportunities in all sectors of the market. Smithers Pira predicts packaging for electrical goods and personal and household care products to be the richest sectors for growth. Packaging for chilled, takeaway and ready-cooked foods is set to be a primary factor for growth in the market, with rising demand for convenience being a key propellant. n Editor’s Note: Smithers Pira’s “The Future of Global Markets for Corrugated Board Packaging to 2017,” a 558 page assess- ment of industry trends and demographics that was released in September 2012, is available now for $6,335/£3,950.
