Packaging is the largest end use market supplied by French and Italian injection moulders, accounting for 47% of polymer usage in Italy and 51% in France in 2017, according to a study by AMI Consulting.
The findings showed that 304 Italian and 239 French companies are involved in packaging production with French and Italian PET preform manufacturers that supply the mineral water industry.
This includes both companies manufacturing in house such as S.A. Des Eaux Minérales D'évian in France and trade suppliers of preforms such as Plastipak Packaging that operates in both France and Italy.
Italy’s second largest end use sector is the manufacture of injection moulded furniture with moulders IPAEProgarden & Scab among some of those listed in the database.
In France, the automotive sector is the second largest end use market accounting for 15% of all injection moulded end use markets compared to only 6% in Italy.
Polypropylene and PET account for 55% of all polymer usage in Italy, thanks to their use in packaging. Polypropylene is also the main material processed by automotive and furniture moulders with some of the larger consumers being Accuma S.p.A. and Sigit Sud S.p.A.
Similarly, in France, 62% of all polymer usage is polypropylene and PET which again are mainly used in automotive and packaging sectors. Nestlé Waters and Schoeller Allibert S.A.S.U. account for some of the largest volumes used in the injection moulding industry in France.
