Changes in production

In France, the production of aerosols decreased to fall down to 505 million in recent years.

This is mainly the result of the worldwid economic crisis but also the difficulty to maintain a performing industry in France.

Il y a donc une tendance lourde préoccupante : quand un site ferme en France ses productions partent en Allemagne, Angleterre ou Hollande. Dans ces pays on peut voir des sites de production aussi importants que les 500 Mu de la production française toute entière. Les difficultés administratives sont telles que de telles usines ne peuvent être imaginées en France.

En Europe certains pays ont bien surmonté la crise. Il s’agit de l’Italie qui a continué sa progression et de la Belgique, de l’Espagne et de la Pologne qui ont maintenu leur niveau de production. Les autres grands pays (Angleterre, Allemagne, Hollande) ont vu leur marché se rétracter, parfois fortement.

Au total la production européenne a donc baissé de 3.8%
