The article provides an update on the state of the flexible packaging market in Europe. The combination of this year's steep rise in feedstock costs and continuing overcapacity in the converting industry has made for an uncomfortable year for Europe's flexible packaging market. In its latest report, PCI Films Consulting identifies the financial difficulties faced by a number of European converters and the likelihood of further rationalization and possible closures across the industry.
