- The FIFA World Cup in 2014 and the Summer Olympics in the 2016 are expected to create huge revenues in Brazil, mostly benefiting the tourism and Food and Beverages sectors. Consumer goods companies will witness a huge surge in demand during these periods, and packaging companies will need to stockpile inventories in order to meet the requirements of their clients

- According to Conlumino, online retail sales are expected to command a 9.5% share of the total retail sales in the US. This trend will rise the demand for more robust packaging and an increase in the use of secondary packaging material to protect the products in transit.
