US-headquartered plastic manufacturer Berry Global yesterday said that demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) and sanitising wipes will still continue after the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.

US-headquartered plastic manufacturer Berry Global yesterday said that demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) and sanitising wipes will still continue after the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.

During an Independent Commodity Intelligence Services (ICIS) webinar, Berry Global executive vice-president Mark Siebert said: “From a demand point of view, we’ve seen a spike in drapes and gowns of almost 22%, hard surface protection wipes of almost 65%, face masks of 700%, and other filtration media that have essentially exceeded the capacity of the industry to respond.”

Berry will be investing in worldwide face mask production in order to supply employees of the company. It will also be redirecting capabilities to meet surge in demand.

If demand for PPE and hand sanitisers remains high following Covid-19 lockdowns across the globe, the packaging industry may be called on to help demand.
