2020 Packaging Material Cost Forecast June 2019
Pack Trax reports flexible packaging materials more extensively than any other publication. We cover all films, coated paper, aluminum foil, and print and color management in ways that add value for subscribers that others simply cannot duplicate.
We project that 2020 will be less volatile than 2019 as resins, aluminum, pulp and paper and flexible films will experience less upward price pressure than we have experienced over the past two years.
Geopolitical risks abound, and that is difficult to Forecast. That is a key risk, as always.
