Making the Packaging System Fit the Circular Economy

For the packaging industry to achieve a sustainable future, it needs to dramatically increase circularity and the reuse of materials. While shifting from a linear economy to a circular model will take time, there are already actions that brands, manufacturers, and converters can already take to help make a difference. This document by Siegwerk – a global leader in inks and coatings for packaging – delves into solving the plastic paradox, looks at the relevance of bioplastics, and sets out ways to not only achieve circularity in packaging but also make it economically viable. Furthermore, the document goes into detail on how printing inks and coatings are vital for enabling circularity in packaging. Ultimately, the packaging system needs to be reconfigured for a circular future. And consumers are expecting the packaging industry to play its part in progress.

The number of roles in Europe made up 3.4 per cent of total big data jobs – up from one per cent in the same quarter last year.

That was followed by Asia-Pacific, which saw a 2.3 year-on-year percentage point change in big data roles.

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, who track the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job advertisements are then classified thematically.

GlobalData's thematic approach to sector activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.

These key themes, which include big data, are chosen to cover "any issue that keeps a CEO awake at night".

By tracking them across job advertisements it allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels - and importantly where the market is expanding and contracting.

Which countries are seeing the most growth for big data roles in the packaging industry?

The fastest growing country was the United Kingdom, which saw zero per cent of all big data job adverts in the three months ending June last year, increasing to 1.8 per cent in the three months ending September this year.

That was followed by India (up 1.2 percentage points), China (up 1.1), and Poland (up 0.9).

The top country for big data roles in the packaging industry is the United States which saw 88.1 per cent of all roles in the three months ending September.

Which cities are the biggest hubs for big data workers in the packaging industry?

Some 13.5 per cent of all packaging industry big data roles were advertised in Broomfield (United States) in the three months ending September - more than any other city.

That was followed by Fairborn (United States) with 13.5 per cent, Columbia (United States) with 10.9 per cent, and Westminster (United States) with 10 per cent.
