High Visibility Packaging to 2010: Clamshells, Blisters & Other - Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

US demand for high visibility packaging will grow 5.1 percent annually through 2010, based in part on advantages in theft and tamper deterrence and product showcasing. Carded blister packs and clamshells present the best opportunities. Food will remain the largest market while the drug and medical product segment will lead gains.

This study analyzes the $6.6 billion US high visibility packaging industry. It presents historical demand data (1995, 2000, 2005) and forecasts to 2010 and 2015 by material (e.g., plastic resins, paper and paperboard, foil); by product (e.g., clamshell packaging, carded blister packs, windowed packaging, skin packaging); and by market (e.g., food, pharmaceutical and medical, cosmetics and toiletries, hardware).

The study also considers market environment variables, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 45 major players including Alcoa, Sealed Air, Bemis, Pactiv, MeadWestvaco, Solo Cup, and Dart.
