According to the market surveys the global packaging consumption reached 700 billion EUR in 2017. It means that the average consumption is about 100 EUR per capita per year. The performance of the Hungarian packaging industry was last year ca 2 billion EUR, i.e. 202 EUR per capita per year. The difference between two data expresses punctually the development level of Hungary and the Hungarian packaging industry.
We can examine the statistics from volume aspects. According to the last Eurostat’s publication 165 kg per capita is the average packaging issue in EU-28 level. This quantity varied between 48 kg per inhabitant in Croatia and 220 kg per inhabitant in Germany. This data in Hungary is 117 kg per inhabitant.
