Food Containers: Rigid & Flexible - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

US demand for food containers will rise 2.8 percent yearly to $31.2 billion in 2020. Plastic containers will continue to supplant paperboard, metal and glass as the product mix shifts toward flexible packaging. Novel formats such as clear plastic cans and squeezable spouted pouches will continue to emerge as package redesigns outpace new food products.

This study analyzes the $27.1 billion US rigid and flexible food container industry. It presents historical demand data (2005, 2010 and 2015) and forecasts (2020 and 2025) by product (e.g., pouches and bags, paperboard containers, plastic containers, metal containers, glass containers) and market (e.g., fruits and vegetables, dairy products, grain products, meat and related products, baked goods, snack foods, sauces and condiments, candy and confections, frozen specialties).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 32 industry players, including Bemis, Silgan, and Graphic Packaging.
