  • This new study – The Future of Printing for Food Packaging to 2023 – tracks how this vitally important print market segment will evolve to reach $271.3 billion and more than 472.4 billion m² by 2023.
  • Food packaging is also of the most regulated segments of the print industry. The print value chain will need to take account of new regulations – especially in Europe and Asia – and simultaneously adjust to priorities beyond safety across 2018-23.
  • This report combines Smithers’s expertise in packaging and print industries to deliver an authoritative picture of this market, the current state-of-the-art in ink manufacture, and high-growth print technologies for the next five years.

description

Our exclusive content:

  • Detailed market sizing and forecasts for printing of all formats of food packaging globally
