10th anniversary of the Packaging Observatory

Published on - updated on

In alignment with the transformation of the trade shows EMBALLAGE and MANUTENTION and their change of denomination to ALL4PACK Paris, the Observatoire de l’Emballage (Packaging Observatory) has become the Observatoire ALL4PACK.

Created in 2005 by EMBALLAGE, the Observatoire de l’Emballage each year aims to offer insight into this significant French economic sector, offering the entire industry (purchasers, manufacturers and distributors) a valuable chance to anticipate developments in packaging.

In 2015, the Observatoire de l’Emballage celebrates its tenth anniversary and has changed its name to the Observatoire ALL4PACK, also including in its questionnaire several new topics reflecting the four complementary sectors of Packaging, Processing, Printing and Handling, with new subject matter suggested by ASLOG[1] and CISMA[2], partners of the show.

10 annual surveys for the Observatoire de l’Emballage: Comparing the perspectives of packaging actors 

In 2005, the trade show Emballage established the Observatoire de l’Emballage (Packaging Observatory) with a dual objective:

  • Provide forward-looking and high added-value insight into the packaging sector
  • Build ties with the sector’s manufacturers.

10 annual surveys later, these goals have been exceeded, because the Observatoire de l’Emballage is today: 

  • The only crossover analysis of the opinions of packaging users and purchasers, manufacturers of packaging/components and manufacturers of packing machinery and equipment.
  • The result of an approach reviewed and adjusted every year so as to anticipate the changes in the packaging sector.

The four charts appended below provide clear proof of the major trends which have marked this decade of the Observatoire de l’Emballage, and offer an outlook on the period from 2016 to 2018.
