Plastic packaging gaining momentum in Mexico

Smithers Pira is forecasting Mexico to have the highest percentage of plastic packaging growth in North America. The gain on average is expected to be 3.1% every year until 2017. The increased demand for plastics in Mexico is driven mainly by the food and beverage markets. The health and beauty and chemical industries are also seeing growth in plastic packaging.

It is anticipated Mexico’s flexible packaging market will grow at an average of 8.7% a year, reaching a value of $3.13 billion in 2018. According to Smithers Pira, flexible plastic packaging is expected to continue to gain popularity, experiencing the highest growth 
rate across all the packaging segments.

More consumer packaged goods companies are investing in Mexico due to the country’s growing middle class and to take advantage of low-cost labor. Mexican manufacturers are the second largest importers of U.S. packaging and processing machinery, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s Quarterly Import/Export Statistics for Sept. 2013.

“Mexico’s middle class is expanding,” said Enrique Guzman, director of the Latin America office of PMMI, the Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies. “And
 its economy is forecast to grow 
at 3.4% this year, making it the fastest-growing among the largest economies in North and South America,” according to show organizers. Expo Pack México is part of the Pack Expo family of trade shows.

 CDF has a wide range of flexible products to satisfy the needs of product manufacturers and producers. CDF’s liners for intermediate bulk containers, bag in box, drums and pails provide outstanding performance in critical food applications.

 The Cheertainer, CDF’s innovative form-fit bag-in-box, is an ideal solution for small and large volume needs. Ranging in size from 5 to 20 liters, the Cheertainer is UN certified and manufactured with CDF1 Smart Seal Technology™, ensuring the ultimate reliability of the package.

 Formfit liners are manufactured to form fit the internal shape of your intermediate bulk container. Form-fit IBC (cube-shaped) liners provide high performance in critical applications, such as top-fill applications using a bridge or automated filler; containers with no access doors for placing a liner at the bottom; high speed fills and viscous products that would get caught in the folds of pillow-shaped liners.

 The Air-Assist liner allows the user to realize a more complete evacuation of their product. Less residual product is left inside the liner, resulting in savings to the user. Air-Assist liners are specifically designed for high viscosity products.

 The most effective moisture and oxygen barrier for packaging environmentally sensitive products is a High- Barrier Foil liner constructed from an aluminum foil lamination. Moisture barrier liners incorporate an impermeable layer of aluminum foil to ensure the long-term integrity of a wide variety of environmentally sensitive products, including nylon, Surlyn®, EVOH, certain pharmaceuticals and various high value foods.

 Pillow-shaped liners are typically constructed with two or three plies of linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) and a barrier film when used for aseptic and oxygen-barrier applications. When filled, these industrial tote liners form the shape of a pillow.
