Asia Pacific is further widening the growth gap between east and west, as it continues to be the strongest performer in beverage packaging. PET, beverage cans and brick liquid cartons saw the most dynamic growth, due to their low cost and rapid growth in key end user categories such as bottled water, RTD tea and juice. Asia Pacific offers ample opportunities for packaging manufacturers; however, value-for-money solutions will be instrumental to success, due to the low incomes of most consumers. Driven by strong growth in China, Asia Pacific has become the leading contributor to global beverages packaging industry, with a CAGR of 7% over 2009-2014. However, China is not the only significant contributor, with India seeing dynamic growth in 2014.
