Our “Cube” econometric model reveals the markets, technologies and downstream sectors that offer the best development prospects for the next five years and provides a breakdown by geographical macro-area or individual country.
The Cube is the MECS research centre’s flagship business intelligence tool for the packaging industry. It is capable of accurately predicting market trends and sales potential for all major countries, for individual manufacturing technologies and for downstream sectors and provides additional details on product consumption trends, especially in the FMCG sector.
The proprietary econometric model developed during three years of study allows short- and medium-term forecasts to be disaggregated and aggregated on the basis of three parameters: geographical areas, client sectors and machine families.
The tool is updated every year by cross-referencing the proprietary databases with official international statistical sources such as Eurostat, OECD, World Bank and IMF and with global import-export trade flow databases such as ITC.
