africon was contracted to conduct a research on Nigeria’s plastic film industry. The objective was to attain profound understanding of the plastic film packaging industry, as well as to identify potential customers for a slitter manufacturer from Germany. Potential companies in this case included primary manufacturers of plastic film as well as plastic film converters.
The growth of plastic film imports over the past ten years is a demonstration of the growth in the adoption of plastic film packaging in Nigeria as well as the slitter market. Polyethylene (PE) film is by far the most popular plastic film material used in Nigeria due to its versatility and wide areas of application.
