Compared to 2011, the value of FIBC imports to the EU dropped by 2.3% to a total of 331.5 Euro in 2012. The decrease of exports to the EU affected the absolute production figures in the top 6 exporting countries. Nevertheless, Turkey consolidated its leadership as FIBC exporter to the EU with a slight increase of market share to now approx. 40%. India remained in second place with stable export figures, followed by China. Remarkably, Vietnam was able to increase the value of imported FIBC to the EU despite of the general drop.
