Dublin, Nov. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Thin Wall Packaging Market by Product Type (Tubs, Cups, Jars, Trays, Clamshells, Lids, Pots), Production Process (Thermoforming, Injection Molding), Material (PP, PE, PET, PS, PVC), Application (Food, Beverages), and Region - Global Forecast to 2023" report has been added to *ResearchAndMarkets.com's* offering.
The thin wall packaging market is expected to grow from USD 42.8 billion in 2018 to USD 53.7 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 4.64% during the forecast period.
The thin wall packaging market is driven by various factors, such as the growing demand from the food & beverage industry, increase in urban population, changes in lifestyles, and rise in disposable income. However, stringent regulations imposed on food packaging and its raw materials can hinder the growth of the market.*Polypropylene segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period*
The polypropylene segment is the fastest-growing in the thin wall packaging market, in terms of value. This is attributed to various benefits offered by polypropylene thin walled products such as high stiffness, heat resistance, steam barrier properties, elasticity, enhanced transparency, and strong impact and rigidity balance. Polyethylene terephthalate is projected to grow at the second-highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to its increasing application in the beverages application. Polystyrene, as a material for thin wall packaging, is projected to witness a decline in demand due to its negative environmental impact.
*Injection molding segment is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period*
The injection molding segment is expected to dominate the thin wall packaging market during the forecast period. This dominance is attributed to its numerous benefits, including faster production speed, increased productivity, lower cost of production, and uniformity. The thermoforming segment was the second-largest segment in the thin wall packaging market in 2017, in terms of volume.
*Asia Pacific is expected to record the highest growth rate during the forecast period*
The Asia Pacific is expected to have the highest growth rate during the forecast period. Key factors such as industrialization, growth in middle-class population, the rise in disposable income, ease of convenient & visible packaging, and the rise in demand for sustainable packed products are expected to drive the demand for thin wall packaging in the Asia Pacific during the forecast period.Meanwhile, Europe is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. This dominance is attributed to the increased demand for convenient, eco-friendly, visually appealing packaging, the rise in domestic demand for food products & exports, along with the expansion of retail chains in this region.

The 13th International ARC Salon Exhibition comes to California December 4th.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) November 14, 2018
The Art Renewal Center (ARC), a 501(C)(3) non-profit educational foundation dedicated to realist art and skill-based training techniques in the visual arts, is bringing the world renown ARC Salon Exhibition to the west coast. The show will consist of 89 Contemporary Realist works selected from over 3,750 entries from 69 countries. The most prestigious realist art competition in the Americas and perhaps the world, the International ARC Salon offers over $100,000 in cash awards, as well as international recognition through partnerships with prestigious magazines, galleries, and museums, including exhibitions and a strong online presence.
After its conclusion at the Salmagundi Club in New York City this past October, the exhibition is now on its way to Sotheby’s Los Angeles (2029 Century Park E. #2950, Los Angeles, CA) from December 4—13, 2018. The Grand Opening reception will be on December 4th from 6pm—8pm. Entry is free. All press and public are welcome to attend. The ARC Salon will continue to be on display at Sotheby's Los Angeles from December 4th—December 13th, 2018 from 10am—5pm Monday through Saturday. This will be the ARC Salon’s first year exhibiting in Los Angeles.
The final stop for the live exhibition will be at the MEAM Museum (C/ Barra de Ferro 5 Barcelona, Spain) from February 8—March 31, 2019 with the ARC Award Ceremony and Grand Opening on February 8th, 2019.
The Art Renewal Center’s International ARC Salon Competition is known for not only recognizing work by nationally and internationally acclaimed artists, but also for discovering new and upcoming talent. Exhibiting artists include American artists such as Joseph McGurl, Benjamin Victor, Candice Bohannon, Julie Bell, Sadie Valeri, Steven Levin and Casey Childs, Swedish artist Nick Alm, Spanish Artists, Aurelio Rodriguez Lopez, Ruben Belloso Adorna and Mikel Olazabal, Argentinian painter, Alejandro Rosemberg, Jesser Valzacchi from Brazil, French artists, Joke Frima and Yoann Lossel, Philippe Attie from Haiti, Patricia Alonzo Diaz from the Dominican Republic, Randalf Dilla from the Philippians, Irish painter Molly Judd, Janne Kearney from Australia, Angus McEwan from England, Jun Liu, and Song Zhou from China and Katsu Nakajima from Japan as well as many others.
Approximately 50% of the works in the show are available for sale, and the other 50% are on loan from private and institutional collections. Now recognized as the largest competition dedicated to realism in the world, the exhibition associated to the competition brings together an eclectic grouping of works from different styles, themes, mediums, and world views; showing the rich cultural diversity that the world of 21st century realism has to offer.
Kara Lysandra Ross, Chief Organizer/Curator of the exhibition and Co-Chair/Chief Operating Officer of the Art Renewal Center, says, “Realism in the visual arts is something inherent to human existence. From the earliest beginnings of humanity, our species had an innate desire to depict the world around them and express what it is to be human through realistic imagery. From the first cave man drawings, to Ancient Rome and the High Renaissance, all the way through to the 19th century, realism was the chief form of artistic expression. There has been a shift back towards realist art in the past 30 years and it is an expanding international movement as this exhibition demonstrates. The Art Renewal Center promotes the idea that 21st Century Realism captures the contemporary way of life and is both self-explanatory and timeless. It is a unique form of communication that is universally understood by people around the world regardless of which languages they speak. This makes this form of art relevant for all humanity, now, and for generations to come.”

Manu Tuilagi is being lined-up to make his England comeback in the climax to the autumn series against Australia on Saturday week - his first international appearance since 2016.

· An obscure and often overlooked Fed survey is flashing a warning about the growing leveraged loan market.
· The Federal Reserve's Senior Loan Officer Opinion Survey, which takes responses from 70 domestic US banks, showed that lending standards for commercial and industrial (C&I) loans eased in the third quarter.
· *Demand for commercial and industrial loans also fell, the survey said.*
· Several major institutions, including the Fed itself, and the Bank of England, have warned about the rise of leveraged loans.
This year's rumbling debt story looks like it isn't going anywhere — despite numerous warnings from major figures in the world of finance — especially if banks continue to lend without adequate protections in the booming leveraged loan market.
According to the Federal Reserve's Senior Loan Officer Opinion Survey, which takes responses from 70 domestic US banks, lending standards and terms for commercial and industrial (C&I) loans eased in the third quarter of this year.
The figures apply to both large and mid-market companies suggesting that so-called "covenant lite" lending is permeating much of the US credit market.
Covenant-lite loans often lack lender protections that are built into traditional loan contracts, potentially allowing companies to take on more debt or loosen restrictions on dividend payments.
Global leveraged loan volumes, which have increasingly featured less stringent covenants, recently hit a total volume of $1.6 trillion, according to the Institute of International Finance.
Banks surveyed by the Fed also cited increased competition from other lenders as an important reason for banks’ easing their standards or terms. Increased tolerance for risk is also thought to be behind banks' decision to reduce covenant quality on loans. The Federal Reserve, the Bank of England, and the Reserve Bank of Australia have all previously sounded the alarm on the decreasing quality of leveraged lending.
The data also suggests that loan demand is falling citing increases in customers internally generated funds, reduced investment, and customers shifting their borrowing to new lenders as reasons for the slowdown.
According to the Fed's survey: "[Banks are] reportedly narrowing loan rate spreads on C&I loans to firms of all sizes. A significant net fraction of banks also reportedly eased loan covenants to large and middle-market firms."
The picture is different for foreign banks, however, which reported that demand for C&I loans remained unchanged over the third quarter.
While reduced covenant quality is often associated with higher credit supply within debt markets putting borrowers in a position of strength. However, highly leveraged corporates who are able to continue piling on debt are at the centre of a worrying trend in the world of credit which looks set to continue.

In the immortal words of Navjot Singh Sidhu: Form is temporary, class is permanant. AB de Villiers falls in this cateogry and smashed 93 off 31 balls in a practice match - his first since he announced his retirement from international cricket.
Earlier in the year while announcing retirement, AB de Villiers posted a video on his Twitter handle and said: “it is time for others to take over.” AB de Villiers, one of the most versatile batsmen of the world cricket, has played 114 Tests, 228 ODIs and 78 T20 Internationals for South Africa.
“I have decided to retire from all international cricket with immediate effect,” the 34-year-old cricketer said. “After 114 Test matches, 228 ODI’s and 78 T20 Internationals, it is time for others to take over. I have had my turn, and to be honest, I am tired. This is a tough decision, I have thought long and hard about it and I’d like to retire while still playing decent cricket. After the fantastic series wins against India and Australia, now feels like the right time to step aside,” he added.c

Company Plans to Donate a Portion of Pear Sales to Benefit the Hanes National Sock Drive Benefiting those Living Homeless in the United States
SELAH, Wash. (PRWEB) November 14, 2018
Thanks to an unexpected idea, grocery shoppers can “pear” their healthy eating and charitable giving goals this holiday season, all from the convenience of the produce aisle. In its inaugural “Pears for Pairs” campaign, Rainier Fruit, one of the largest suppliers of quality conventional and organic fruit in the United States, will contribute a portion of the proceeds of sales of its pears to the ninth annual Hanes Sock Drive, which has distributed more than 2.5 million pairs of socks to those living homeless across the United States.
The Hanes National Sock Drive is part of Hanes for Good, HanesBrands’ corporate social responsibility program, which focuses on environmental stewardship, workplace quality and community building.
“At Rainier, our #WholesometotheCore values guide everything we do,” said Mark Zirkle, president, Rainier Fruit. “We believe in collaborating to do the most good and partnering with Hanes on its annual Sock Drive feels like a natural extension of our focus on making a difference in the communities where we do business, while offering an opportunity for consumers to exercise their values with their wallets by making a socially conscious purchase.”
The Pears for Pairs campaign will run November through December at over 1000 participating retail locations. The “Pears for Pairs” program kicked off with two events on November 10 in Austin, TX. The local events included a sock drive at the Wanderlust 108 yoga event at Travis County Expo Center followed by an onsite donation of more than 1000 socks and pears at Community First! Village and their mobile food trucks with Rainier Fruit and Hanes, to benefit local homeless charity, Mobile Loaves & Fishes.
In addition to in store and in market events, Rainier Fruit will use their social media platforms to raise awareness around the issue of homelessness including an online promotion on “Giving Tuesday” where Rainier Fruit will donate a pair of socks for every social share up to a preset dollar amount.
“The homeless crisis has reached staggering levels with more than 3.5 million people experiencing homelessness each year and more than 550,000 men, women and children being homeless each night,” said Andy Tudor, VP of Business Development for Rainier Fruit. “Many homeless individuals walk over 10 miles per day and socks are a simple and often requested comfort that is a basic need that many of us take for granted, this is a very simple way we can help.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with Rainier Fruit Company to expand the reach and impact of our Hanes National Sock Drive,” said Sidney Falken, chief branding officer for HanesBrands. “We want to spark a movement to help those living homeless in America, and this is a great step toward that goal.”
At the conclusion of the campaign, Rainier will donate a minimum of $20,000 to the Hanes Charity Sock Drive based on a portion of the proceeds of sales of its Rainier Fruit branded pears.
