Paper versus Plastic in Packaging - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

In selected packaging markets where paper and plastic compete, plastic will make further inroads into paper. Rigid packaging demand will slightly outpace flexible packaging based on above-average growth for tubs and cups, trays, clamshells and two-piece high visibility plastic containers.

This study analyzes the 23.2 billion pound competitive plastic and paper packaging industry in the US. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by packaging material (paper, plastic), type (rigid, flexible) and competitive market (e.g., meat, poultry and seafood; milk and dairy products; fruit beverages; laundry detergents; shipping drums; retail bags and sacks).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, discusses market leaders and profiles 36 selected industry players, including Bemis, Exopack and Graphic Packaging.
