Meat, Poultry & Seafood Packaging to 2017 - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

Demand for meat, poultry, and seafood packaging is forecast to increase 3.2 percent annually to $9.7 billion in 2017. Flexible packaging will outpace rigid, based on solid prospects for pouches and high barrier film. Poultry will be the fastest growing packaging application based on poultry’s low cost and good nutritional profile.

This study analyzes the $8.2 billion US meat packaging industry. It presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by technology (e.g., modified atmosphere packaging, case-ready, vacuum packaging, active and intelligent packaging, retort packaging), product (e.g., boxes, trays, cartons, cans, containers, sleeves, film, bags, pouches, paper and foil), application (meat, seafood, poultry), and market (fresh and frozen, processed, ready-to-eat).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 34 industry players such as Sealed Air, Bemis, and International Paper.
