US demand for meat packaging is forecast to incrase 3.1% per year to $5.9 billion in 2021. Corrugated boxes, plastic film, bags, and trays will continue to hold the majority of total meat packaging demand through 2021. Pouches and plastic containers will exhibit the fastest gains as they take some share from other containers in the frozen and processed meat sectors. Markets showing the most rapid gains will be the burgeoning ready-to-eat sector and the fresh meat sector.

This Freedonia industry study analyzes the $5.1 billion US meat packaging industry. It presents historical demand data through 2016 plus a forecast for 2021 for competing products, markets and applications. The study also details technologies used in meat packaging, evaluates company market share and provides strategic analysis on industry players including Bemis, Berry Plastics, Georgia-Pacific, Graphic Packaging, International Paper, NOVIPAX, Packaging Corporation of America, Pactiv, Sealed Air, Viscofan Group, and WestRock.
