Active & Intelligent Packaging

As Quoted In Macplas

Active packaging will be led by gas scavengers, suscepter packaging and self-venting packaging, while intelligent packaging will be spurred by quick response codes and printed electronics.

US demand to grow 8.0% annually through 2017

Active and intelligent packaging products are largely auxiliaries that are used to enhance the performance of core packaging. While active packaging provides functions beyond product protection and identification, such as moisture control, intelligent packaging incorporates features that indicate status or communicate product changes and other information. Demand for active and intelligent packaging in the US is forecast to expand 8.0 percent annually to $3.5 billion in 2017, well above total packaging demand growth.

Intelligent packaging to grow at double-digit rate

Intelligent packaging demand will record double digit annual gains through 2017. In addition to growing product protection and food safety requirements, increases will be propelled by rapid advances for newer and emerging technologies such as quick response and other mobile marketing codes and printed electronics on packaging. Strong gains are anticipated for time-temperature indicator (TTI) labels based on growing cost competitiveness, coupled with the heightened presence of temperature-sensitive drugs and the significance of food safety during distribution.

Active packaging demand is expected to increase at an annual rate much closer to that of packaging demand in general through 2017. Gas scavenger demand will climb at a faster pace as a result of expanded applications for oxygen scavengers in food, beverage, and pharmaceutical packaging. Additionally, growth will be propelled by solid prospects for susceptor packaging in uses other than microwave popcorn and by robust increases for self-venting packaging. Rapid growth from a small base is anticipated for antimicrobial packaging, spurred by technological developments. However, cost and performance factors will tend to inhibit broad usage.

Pharmaceuticals to be fastest growing market

The key food market will show strong growth based on heightened requirements for longer shelf life for processed foods and packaged fresh foods and the growing importance of packaging in increasing food safety. In the beverage market, intelligent packaging types such as color indicating features, smartphone-enabled barcodes, and TTIs will become increasingly prevalent on beverage containers and labels.

Pharmaceuticals will be the fastest growing active and intelligent packaging market through 2017, with opportunities driven by the health care needs of the aging US population, an increased prevalence of chronic diseases, and the expanding presence of high value, temperature-sensitive biotechnology drugs in the product mix.

Study coverage

This study analyzes the $2.4 billion US active and intelligent packaging industry. It presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by product (e.g., gas scavengers, corrosion control packaging, desiccants, susceptor packaging, color indicator packaging, time-temperature indicators), and market (e.g., food, beverages, pharmaceuticals, primary metals, motor vehicles, electronics).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 42 industry players, including Reynolds Group, Sealed Air and Clariant International.
