Sector News - Packaging Quarterly Update Q2 2022

Packaging News

Global packaging M&A is continuing at a high level. Compared to last year, weaker M&A activity, however still stronger than in the same quarter in 2019 and 2020. 54 M&A deals were closed or announced, mainly in Asia and US. The war in Ukraine immediately impacted the packaging industry by raising the prices of raw materials and transportation. Still, the full spectrum of medium and long-term consequences is not yet entirely evident. Despite overall economic challenges, most packaging companies are resilient and able to manage the cost pressure and pass on cost increases. Volker Ruhl, Partner in the Frankfurt office, gives insights in this report and summarises the current trends: “Switching from macro to micro level, we have still a situation of strong growth and strong M&A appetite."
