Acquisitions is the key strategy adopted by the leading players in the packaging market. It accounted for a major share of all the growth strategies between 2014 and 2016. Besides acquisitions, companies have also adopted strategies such as expansions and new product launches to enhance their global presence in the packaging market from 2014 to 2016. The rising demand for packaging is attributed to the increasing health concerns, growing concern with regards to hygienic packaging, and increase in urban population which has led to increase in demand for FMCGs, pharmaceutical supplies and other consumer durable.
