Business outlook

We consult our member companies every quarter about their assessment of the economic situation. The result is the IK Economic Trend. It is regarded as the barometer of the plastics packaging industry. The individual working groups define benchmarks whose results are only made available to participating member businesses.

We also publish production statistics and international trade statistics. Please contact us in case you are interested in any material.
