GlobalData's "Packaging Industry Business Outlook and Procurement Survey H1 2017", report examines executives' opinion on business outlook and procurement activities over Jun 2017-Nov 2017. It also highlights key business priorities, supplier price variations, changes in capital expenditure, including procurement activities, and organizations' perspective on e-procurement. In addition, this report presents the future projection of merger and acquisition activities within the packaging industry over the next six months.
Over the next six months, packaging companies are looking to expand their business operations in the existing markets to reap benefits such as diversification, economies of scale, and easy availability of finance, due to which expansion in the current markets and new product development are expected to become major priorities in H1 2017 (Jun 2017-Nov 2017). Packaging industry executives are confident about emerging markets such as China and India, and developed markets, namely the US and Germany, contributing significant growth towards the packaging industry during H1 2017. Although the highest percentage of global packaging industry executives projects an increase in merger and acquisition activity over the next six months, they intend to increase capital expenditure on new product development and IT infrastructure development. Procurement activities will increase on IT services and raw material purchases amid the expectation of a surge in supplier prices over the next six months.
