Description

Plastic Packaging in the Middle East

As an effort to diversify the economy from dependence on oil and gas, Middle East governments are driving the growth of the plastics conversion industry to new levels.

Between 2009 and 2012 more than 20 million tons of plastics raw materials capacity will come on stream in the GCC region. At least 25% of the global plastics industry will be based in the Middle East by 2014 and commercial and industrial packaging is leading the way.

However, the plastic packaging industry is currently witnessing times of severe economic uncertainty in the wake of the credit crisis.

Now more than ever, there is a need for a sustainable and internationally-leading supply chain that delivers high-quality products for both the regional and international markets.
