US tube and stick packaging demand will rise 5.1 percent annually through 2014. The fastest gains are expected for stick packs, driven by advantages of product differentiation, portability and material savings compared to conventional single-portion pouches. The dominant squeeze tube segment will slightly lag the overall industry.
This study analyzes the $1.4 billion tube and stick packaging industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 199, 2004 an 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by type (e.g., squeeze tubes, twist tubes, cartridges, stick packs), material (plastic, aluminum, paper) and market (e.g., cosmetics and toiletries, pharmaceuticals, adhesives and sealants, food).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 37 industry players, including Alcan Packaging Beauty, Sonoco Products and Rexam.
