Converted Flexible Packaging

US converted flexible packaging demand will grow 4.2 percent annually through 2011. Gains will be driven in part by advantages over most rigid packaging and by developments in breathable and self-venting films and resealable features. Pouches will be the fastest growing type while bags remain the largest segment.

This study analyzes the $13.4 billion US converted flexible packaging industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1996, 2001 and 2006, and forecasts for 2011 and 2016 by material (e.g., plastic film, paper, aluminum foil); product (e.g., bags, pouches); and packaging market (e.g., food, nonfood).

The study also considers market environment factors, evaluates company market share and profiles 33 major players including Bemis, Alcan, Printpack, Sealed Air (Cryovac), Altivity Packaging, Pliant and Exopack.
