The packaging market is being fueled not least of all by Russia's efforts to gradually expand local production, particularly of food and pharmaceuticals. Packaging plays an important role in both areas, both in the food and pharmaceutical sectors, for protecting products and informing consumers, and as a purchase incentive, amongst other things. Demand is growing steadily, including for high-quality packaging.
As a result, the business opportunities have increased significantly on the market for packaging machinery and equipment. This also applies to Swiss companies whose products are finding more and more buyers in Russia. This is particularly the case of industries or individual companies which benefit from State subsidies, within the framework of so-called import substitution programs, for investments in machinery.
The Swiss Business Hub Russia explains how the Russian market for packaging machines functions and where Swiss industry companies have the best business opportunities in its report regarding «The Market for Packaging Equipment».
