US demand for active and intelligent packaging will climb eight percent annually through 2015. Intelligent packaging will be the fastest growing segment, propelled by Quick Response (QR) and other two-dimensional (2D) barcodes. The dominant active packaging segment will be driven by above-average advances for gas scavengers and susceptor packaging.
This study analyzes the $1.5 billion US active and intelligent packaging industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by product (e.g., gas scavengers, corrosion control packaging, moisture control packaging, susceptor packaging, time-temperature indicators) and market (e.g., food, beverages, primary metals, pharmaceuticals, motor vehicles, electronics).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 45 industry players, including Sealed Air, Süd-Chemie and Graham Packaging.
