According to research by International Data Corporation (IDC), the Western European printer and multifunction (MFP) market decreased by 6.1% in unit terms in 1Q19 compared with the same period a year ago to give a market size of 4.13 million units.

Plastic Packaging – Europe: EU plans to reduce marine pollution from plastics may raise costs for packaging firms

The European Commission recently unveiled plans aimed at reducing marine pollution from plastics in the European Union (EU). The measures envisage banning certain single-use plastics, reductions in the use of plastic food containers and drinks cups at the national level and requirements for producers to help cover the costs of waste management and clean-up. We believe the proposals, if adopted in their current form by the European Parliament and EU member states, could result in some incremental cost for European plastic packaging manufacturers and further increase pressure on the industry to design for sustainability and use more recycled materials. However, we consider the proposed ban on certain single-use plastic packaging products as immaterial for rated European plastic packaging companies because they do not tend to produce these products.
