Healthcare products are the single largest users of folding cartons, followed by tobacco, and it is these two industries that face the most significant challenges in folding carton usage. Defence against counterfeit products, particularly in the pharmaceutical industry, will see the global introduction of serialisation for track and trace systems incorporating 2-D barcodes. Europe will adopt these systems from 2018 and this will drive significant investment in both hardware and software across the supply chain.

The Future of Folding Cartons to 2020 is a comprehensive analysis of future prospects in the global folding carton market. The report examines the current state of play in the industry and addresses the key drivers and trends that will shape the future of folding carton packaging to 2020.
