UK-based AMI(Applied Market Information) is to launch Plastic Closure Innovations 2013, a brand new conference for the plastics caps and closure manufacturing industry.
The report published by AMI Consulting in 2011 Europe, determined that non-beverage applications account for 60% of total caps and closure industry polymer demand, with the toiletries and cosmetics sectors being the largest consumers of polymer, said the company.
The key market driver for closures in non-beverage applications is said to be innovation, as brand owners seek greater on-shelf differentiation through aesthetics and functionality, said packagingeurope.com.
According to the company, role of packaging continues to grow in importance within the FMCG industry.
The conference will provide a platform for brand owners and fillers, closures producers, packaging manufacturers, designers and suppliers of the industry to learn and discuss the latest developments in the plastics caps and closures industry.
