Protective Packaging

US demand for protective packaging is forecast to climb 6.2 percent annually through 2014, driven in part by the continued proliferation of Internet shopping. Value gains will be helped by greater interest in recycled or biodegradable materials. The fastest growth is expected for air pillows, foamed plastics and bubble packaging.

This study analyzes the $3.8 billion US protective packaging industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by function, market and product (e.g., molded foam, foam-in-place polyurethane, polyolefin rolls, protective mailers, paperboard protectors, bubble packaging, insulated shipping containers, air pillows, paper fill, dunnage bags, loose fill, molded pulp).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 48 industry players, including Sealed Air, Pregis and Tegrant.
