Information agency Credinform represents an overview of trends in the activity of companies in the sphere of packaging production.
Enterprises with the largest volume of annual revenue engaged in the sphere of packaging production (TOP-10 and TOP-1000), were selected for the analysis, according to the data from the Statistical Register for the latest available periods (for 2014, 2015, 2016). The analysis was made on the basis of the data of the Information and Analytical system Globas.

The revenue of 10 industry leaders made 29% of the total revenue of TOP-1000 companies in 2016. It points to a relatively high level of competition in the industry (Picture 2).
In general, there is a trend towards an increase in volume revenue among manufacturers of cardboard package (Picture 3).
Profit and losses
The profit volume of 10 industry leaders in 2016 made 51% of the total profit of TOP-1000 companies (Picture 4).
Industry average profit’s indicators of manufacturers of cardboard package and wooden containers or the ten-year period trend to increase (Picture 5).
Over a three-year period, the average values of profit indicators of TOP-1000 companies tends to increase. The average value of net loss also increases (Picture 6).
Key financial ratios
Over the ten-year period the industry average indicators of the total liquidity ratio were in the range of recommended values – from 1,0 up to 2,0 (Picture 7). In general, the ratio indicator tends to increase.
The total liquidity ratio (the relation of the amount of current assets to short-term liabilities) shows the sufficiency of company’s funds for repayment of its short-term liabilities.
The experts of the Information agency Credinform, taking into account the actual situation both in the economy as a whole and in the sectors, has developed and implemented in the Information and Analytical system Globas the calculation of practical values of financial ratios that can be recognized as normal for a particular industry. For companies in the sphere of packaging production the practical value of the total liquidity ratio made from 1,02 up to 3,00 in 2016.
There has been a decline in indicators of the return on investment ratio (Picture 8) for three years. The ratio is calculated as the relation of net profit to the sum of own capital and long-term liabilities and demonstrates the return on the equity involved in the commercial activity of own capital and the long-term borrowed funds of an organization.
Asset turnover ratio is calculated as the relation of sales proceeds to the average value of total assets for a period and characterizes the efficiency of use of all available resources, regardless of the sources of their attraction. The ratio shows how many times a year a complete cycle of production and circulation is made, yielding profit.
This business activity ratio showed a tendency to increase for three-year period (Picture 9).
The largest share in the total revenue of TOP-1000 is owned by companies, specializing in the manufacture of plastic products for packaging of goods (Picture 10).
Main regions of activity
TOP-1000 companies are unequally distributed across the Russian territory and registered in 70 regions (Picture 11).
Financial position score
An assessment of the financial position of companies in the industry shows that the largest number is in a stable financial position and above the average (Picture 12).
Solvency index Globas
Most of TOP-1000 companies got Superior/High or Medium Solvency index Globas, that points to their ability to repay their debts in time and fully (Picture 13).
Thus, a comprehensive assessment of the activity of companies in the sphere of packaging production, taking into account the main indices, financial indicators and ratios, points to the presence of multidirectional trends, depending on the specialization of production. In general, relative stability is observed in the industry.
Information agency Credinform has prepared a ranking of the largest Russian manufacturers of packaging. The companies with the largest annual revenue (TOP-10) have been selected for the ranking, according to the data from the Statistical Register for the latest available accounting periods (2016, 2015 and 2014). Then they have been ranked by solvency ratio (Table 1). The analysis was based on the data from the Information and Analytical system Globas.
Solvency ratio (x) is a ratio of shareholders’ equity to total assets, and it shows the dependence of the company on external loans. Its recommended value: > 0,5. A value less than a minimum one is indicative of dependence on external sources of funds, which may result in a liquidity crisis, unstable financial standing in the event of economic downturn.
The whole set of indicators and financial ratios is to be considered in order to get a full and comprehensive insight into a company’s financial standing.
