High Visibility Packaging: Clamshells, Blisters & Other

As Quoted In Converting Magazine

US demand for high visibility packaging will grow four percent annually through 2012. Clamshells will present the best opportunities based on ebullient gains in food markets such as fresh produce and prepared foods, and on their upscale appearance. Blister packs will also do well, driven by healthy gains in drug packaging and their lower material usage.

This study analyzes the $7 billion US high visibility packaging industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1997, 2002 and 2007, and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by material (e.g., polystyrene, polyvinyl chloride, polyester, paper and paperboard), product (e.g., clamshell packaging, windowed packaging, carded blister packs, skin packaging) and market.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 44 major players, including Reynolds Packaging, Sealed Air and Pactiv.
