Overview of French packaging industry

the scale of French packaging industry is second only to Germany in Europe, and is on a par with Britain. According to the statistics released by the French Packaging Research Institute, the output value of the French packaging industry in 1997 was 103 billion francs, accounting for 7.1% of the output value of the whole legal manufacturing industry and 2% of the gross domestic product of France. It is the eighth largest industrial sector in France. The output value of paper and cartons was 31billion francs, ranking first, followed by 23billion francs for plastic containers, 17billion francs for glass bottles, 13.5 billion francs for metal containers, 5billion francs for wood products and 14billion francs for others. The export value of French packaging products was 15billion francs in 1997, and the import value was 17. If the change-over switch was turned to the "fast back" position, 0 billion francs, and the domestic consumption of color packaging was a little more than 100billion francs. The average annual consumption of French packaging is 1750 francs, with an average daily consumption of nearly 5 francs, of which paper and paperboard account for 34%, plastics account for 25%, glass bottles account for 19%, metals account for 15%, and wood account for 7%. The per capita consumption of packaging materials and containers in France is nearly 200 kg, including 61 kg of paper and paperboard, accounting for 31%, 65 kg of glass bottles, accounting for 34%, 22 kg of plastic, accounting for 12%, 15 kg of metal, accounting for 8%, 28 kg of wood Accounting for 15% (France ranks first in the world in terms of per capita consumption and consumption of glass bottles, which is more than twice that of Germany, which ranks second, and far ahead of other countries)

there are 2000 various packaging enterprises in France, with more than 110000 employees. Among them, there are 45000 people in the paper and carton industry, 26000 in the plastic packaging industry, 22000 in the glass industry, 14000 in the wood industry, and about 10000 others. Far from being compared with Germany and Italy, the output value of France's packaging machinery industry continued to decline from 3.1 billion francs in 1999, 3.4 billion francs in 1991 and 3.2 billion francs in 1992 to 2.6 billion francs in 1993 and 1.7 billion francs in 1994. There are about 80 packaging machinery manufacturing enterprises in France, with more than 3000 employees, almost all of which are small and medium-sized manufacturers

the trade of French packaging machinery showed a surplus state. In 1994, the import amount of French packaging machinery was 2.42 billion Because of the above 1 The reason is that plastic tensile testing machines are lighter than metal ones, with an export volume of 1.6 billion francs and a domestic packaging machinery market size of 2.5 billion francs. Although the French packaging industry is not among the best in the world (8th and 9th). However, the French packaging industry is famous for its strong design and development ability, and can launch 200-300 new packaging varieties every year. According to the estimation of the French Packaging Research Institute, the output value of French packaging accounts for about 1/5 of the total output value of packaging in Europe and 1/21 of the total output value of packaging in the world. The world packaging output value is 2200billion francs, including 600billion francs in North America, 550billion francs in Europe, 350billion francs in Japan, 100billion francs in Latin America, 400billion francs in Asia (excluding Japan), 50billion francs in Australia and 30billion francs in Africa. Paper and paperboard account for the highest proportion of various packaging materials, followed by plastic, metal reserved printer interfaces and glass

in Europe, France is the second largest plastic raw material producer after Germany, and the fifth largest plastic producer in the world after the United States, Japan, South Korea and Germany. In 1997, France produced 5.8 million tons of plastic raw materials, up 9% from 5.3 million tons last year. Manufacturing packaging materials and containers is the largest application field of French plastics. Masonry hammering, construction, automobile and electronic and electrical industries account for 39%, 25%, 11% and 8% of the French plastic consumption market respectively. The trade volume and amount of French plastics are quite large. In 1996, the export volume was 4.16 million tons, equivalent to 78% of the total output of 5.3 million tons, and the import volume was 2.88 million tons, equivalent to 72% of France's domestic consumption of 4.03 million tons. The import and export amounts were 27.4 billion francs and 20.3 billion francs respectively (increased by 30.3 billion francs and 22 billion francs respectively in 1997). There are 4200 enterprises in the French plastic processing industry, with a total annual sales of 125 billion francs

French plastic processing enterprises are mostly small and medium-sized enterprises, with 46.1% of employees ranging from 1 to 9, 38.0% of employees ranging from 10 to 49, 8.5% of employees ranging from 50 to 99, 7.0% of employees ranging from 100 to 499, and only 0.4% of employees above 500. The output value of French plastic processing machinery (including rubber processing machinery) was 4.17 billion francs in 1995, which fell to 3.4 billion francs and 3.5 billion francs in 1996 and 1997. Among them, the output value of hollow molding machine accounted for a high proportion of the total value, which was 70% in 1995. Although it decreased in 1996, it still reached 59%. The output value in 1996 was 2billion francs. In the same year, the export value of French plastic processing machinery was 3.84 billion francs and the import value was 2.84 billion francs, a decrease of 7.3% and an increase of 11% respectively over 1995
