Factors driving future development



A number of factors have impacted on the development of metal packaging in general and on coating and printing technologies in particular over the past 30 years. Perhaps the most significant of these factors has been legislation controlling the discharge of organic solvents and other chemicals to the atmosphere, i.e. the control of VOCs. This control can be expected to continue into the future but other factors, always there in the past, can also be expected to come to the fore and these can be divided into two main categories: broadly environmental and broadly commercial. In this chapter we will review these factors and how their impact can be expected to change over the next decade.
