The booming packaging industry in Indonesia was well-represented at ALLPACK INDONESIA 2017.
The growing packaging industry in Indonesia was well-represented at ALLPACK INDONESIA 2017, or the 18th International Exhibition on Food & Beverage, Pharmaceutical Processing & Packaging Technology which was held from November 1-4 at the Jakarta International Expo (JIEXPO), Kemayoran.

ALLPACK was held in conjunction with ALLPRINT INDONESIA, or the 20th Printing Technology, Equipment, Supplies, and Machinery, IPEX – Indonesia Pharmaceutical Expo, or the 13th International Exhibition on Pharmaceutical, Ingredients, Contract Manufacturing, Processing, Technology, Packaging Machinery, Equipment and Services, AllProcess, All Industrial, and AllPlas.

Indonesia’s packaging industry has been posting positive growth over the years with packaging market valued at 101,232.4 million units in 2016. Growth projected at a CAGR of 5.2% could put the market at 130,325.8 million units by 2021. A report by ReportLinker said that the packaging industry in Indonesia is characterized by packages that enhance the utility of the products through on-the-go, convenience, and sustainability benefits.
Rigid plastic packaging has the biggest slice of the market share with growth projected at 3.2% annually during the period 2016-2021. Rigid plastics accounted for a share of 24.9% in 2016 (25,251.1 million units) and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.7% during 2016-2021, to reach 36,664.4 million units in 2021. With preference for rigid plastic packaging due to its cost-effectiveness in protecting food and beverages during delivery from farm to table, and preservation of food over longer durations, the packaging market is seen as a major sector with rapid developments in the next few years.
On the other hand, flexible packaging accounted for a market share of 42% in 2016, or about 42,538.6 million units in 2016, and is forecast to reach 52,448.9 million units in 2021, at a CAGR of 4.3% during 2016-2021, with major usage in the food industry (74% share in 2016). This growth is largely driven by its low cost, flexibility to suit multiple shapes and sizes, convenience (zip-locks, plastic closures), and low-carbon foot print on the environment as compared to rigid plastics.
