The Italian packaging close to 6 billion euros

The preliminary data of Ucima expect a further increase over the already excellent results of 2012

According to the preliminary data processed by the Ucima Study Centre, the sector of Italian manufacturers of packaging and wrapping machines should close 2013 with a turnover in further increase of 7.6% compared to last year, reaching 5,920 million euro. Another record for an industry which continues to gain market share.
It is, in fact, its widespread presence on world markets the cutting edge of the industry. Exports in 2013 accounted for 83.6% of total sales, reaching a record 4.95 billion euro, an increase of 8.6% on 2012. European Union, Asia and Central and South America will confirm the main target areas of made in Italy technology. The top three countries of destination of Italian technologies were instead, the United States, France and China.
Growth was also the Italian market, with an increase of 3%, was expected to reach a turnover of 970 million euros.
“We are extremely pleased with the results that emerge from the analysis of our Study Centre – say Giuseppe Lesce, President of Ucima. – They prove once again that the real country is much better than the picture transmitted by the press, and it is very far from the inefficiency of our political class. These milestones are, in fact, been achieved by our companies with determination, skill and competence, and are even more important because they are obtained without being able to rely on an efficient country.”
Even 2014 should be a year of growth for the Italian manufacturers of packaging machinery. “The economic indicators currently available and data collection on the orders of our companies – says Lesce – we do anticipate further growth in turnover in the next twelve months. The sector’s turnover is expected to exceed € 6 billion and exports exceed $ 5 billion, confirming our global leadership.”
“2014 will be a year full of important events for our companies – concludes Lesce – In particular, it will be held in Parma, the first edition of Food Pack, the exhibition devoted to packaging technologies for the food and beverage that will be held simultaneously at Cibus. It will be an important opportunity to reaffirm the leadership in food technology of our Country through a trade that can compete with the other international events”.
