The Report is the most recent in FPA's series of reports to address questions regarding the performance of the flexible packaging industry in the current uncertain economic and turbulent business conditions. The focus was principally short term, fourth quarter 2016 results versus third quarter 2016 and fourth quarter 2015. Areas of business activity surveyed included net sales, volume/output, profitability, inventory levels, capital spending and capacity utilization. In addition, information was gathered to assess expectations for sales performance and volume/output in the first quarter 2017 versus the previous period, fourth quarter 2016.
