Notably, Uflex is India’s largest global flexible packaging solution company enjoying a formidable market presence in over 140 countries.
The Indian flexible packaging industry has been growing at 15-17 % annually over the past five years or so. Globally the industry is growing at 4.5-5% annually. Consumer Goods industry is the biggest user of flexible packaging but still remains quite under penetrated in India when compared globally. Estimated 20-25% consumer goods are sold in packaged form. With the improving economic environment and demand from consumer goods industry, the domestic packaging industry has a potential to grow at more than 20% annually here onwards. Flexible packaging is thus among the most promising and fastest growing sectors in India.
