DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 23, 2018--The “Flexible Packaging Market in China 2018-2022” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The flexible packaging market in China will register a CAGR of over 8% by 2022.

Flexible packaging leaves a lower carbon footprint than traditional packaging. For packing equal amount of food, flexible pouches require 4% lesser cargo space than glass containers. This leads to lower emission during transport. Also, less amount of materials is required to manufacture flexible packaging. 2.5 pounds of flexible packaging material is required to pack 100 pounds of beverages whereas 84 pounds of glass is required to pack the same volume of beverages. These attributes make flexible packaging more sustainable than glass and rigid PET. Thus, the growing awareness for sustainable development will drive the flexible packaging market in China.
