Green Packaging

As Quoted In Converting Magazine

US demand for packaging designed to lessen environmental impact is projected to grow 3.4 percent annually through 2013. Biodegradable plastic packaging and recycled content plastic packaging will grow the fastest. Reusable plastic containers and intermediate bulk containers will pace gains in the reusable packaging segment.

This study analyzes the $37 billion US green packaging industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by packaging type (e.g., recycled content, reusable, biodegradable plastic) and market (e.g., food, consumer products, beverages, chemicals, shipping, foodservice).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 49 industry players, including Cargill, DuPont and Amcor.
