MENA Industrial Packaging Market Is Estimated At USD 4.5 Billion In 2022 And Is Projected To Reach USD 6.3 Billion By 2027

Press Release from Future Market Insights

Demand for industrial packaging in the Middle East and Africa is likely to remain robust owing to the improving situation of international trade. In addition, global trade of industrial products has grown three-fold over the past decade. Bio-chemical products and food-grade ingredients are amongst few of the most traded items around the world.

In the MENA region, the focus has recently shifted towards non-oil based industrial activities as the long-term dependency on crude oil business is gradually abating. Moreover, it is important to develop new business verticals in order to stay unaffected from the ongoing dwindles in the region’s oil and gas industry.
