Executive summary

The packaging industry in Thailand registered strong growth during the review period growing with a CAGR of 8.21%, supported by both growing food exports and the entry of major industry competitors into the domestic market. The food and beverages sector remains the key growth driver of the domestic packaging industry and is supported by export demand and easy access to raw materials. Over the forecast period, the industry is expected to grow at a CAGR 6.41% to reach a value of US$11.1 billion in 2016. The estimated growth rate for the industry over the forecast period is significantly lower than the growth rate achieved in the review period. The slow growth in the demand for packaging products is expected to reduce revenue growth, and hence the financial performance, of Thai packaging companies.
