Packaging Market in Poland
Poland is one of the biggest packaging markets in Europe. Packaging industry is equipped with modern means of production and the latest technologies, and the offer of packaging producers is fully competitive in the foreign markets.
The packaging market in Poland has been de- veloping dynamically in the last twenty years. A con- stant demand for modern packaging has been ob- served since the transformation of the political sys- tem. In the 1990s packaging was ascribed a market- ing function. In this period also technologies applied for years in the Western Europe allowing production of packaging that was unknown before (aluminum cans, PET bottles, etc.) were brought to Poland.
It was possible thanks to foreign investors en- tering the Polish market. It entailed a dynamically in- creasing supply and sales of packaging. In the first decade of the 21 century these trends continued and stabilized.
Currently in Poland about 7000 companies operate in the packaging industry, of which 4300 are considered important. They include 2300 production companies, 1200 companies offering packaging services or rendering services to the packaging industry and about 800 companies that operate in the area of distribution. These companies employ about 200 thou- sand persons. The structure of the Polish packaging in- dustry is similar to the sales structure. About 50% of 2300 most important producers offer plastic pack- aging, and further 38% produce paper and cardboard packaging. The share of each of the other group of materials (wood, metal, glass and other) constitute about 2-4% of the entire market. A relatively high concentration of production is typical for the Polish packaging industry. About 300 out of 2300 producers satisfy 70% of demand of the national packaging market. This is a result of the presence of strategic foreign investors in the Polish market that represent large companies and capital groups. This situation concerns, among others the markets of metal, corrugated paper and cardboard packaging, and to a smaller extent, those of glass and plastic materials.
Perspectives of Development in the Packaging Market in Poland.
A natural reference point in the analyses of potential development of Polish economy is countries of Western Europe. In the countries with a developed packaging market this sector constitutes on average about 2% of the value of goods sold in the market. This share reaches 7-8% on the grocery or beverages market (data for Germany). In the EU15 countries the use of packaging in 2010 amounted about EUR 320 per inhabitant. In the same period in Poland this value amounted to EUR 157. Assuming an even lower target level than the one in Western Europe in a 20-year perspective a 100%-growth of this indicator may be expected. The expectation that the pace of development of the packaging industry in Poland will remain noticeably faster than the economy pace of development is well-founded. In the light of the current economic situation and international comparisons, the pack- aging market in Poland should be considered highly prospective. The structure of Polish packaging market will become similar to the developed markets of the countries of Western Europe. In the upcoming years an increase in the share of paper and card- board packaging (by about 4-5 percentage points) and a decrease in a relative popularity of metal pack- aging may be expected. The share of plastic pack- aging should remain at a level which is similar to the present one. Forecasts for glass packaging are not unequivocal. Some of them indicate a decrease in the demand, whereas others predict a revival of the glass packaging.
