Meat, Poultry & Seafood Packaging

As Quoted In World Poultry

US demand for meat, poultry and seafood packaging is forecast to grow 3.5 percent yearly through 2013. Gains will be driven in part by the continuing shift to higher cost case-ready packaging by many retailers as a means to reduce in-store labor costs. Flexible packaging will outpace the larger rigid packaging segment.

This study analyzes the $7.7 billion US meat packaging industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by technology and raw material (e.g., case-ready, modified atmosphere, vacuum, retort, active and intelligent), product (e.g., rigid, flexible), application and market (fresh and frozen, processed, ready-to-eat).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 41 industry players, including Sealed Air, International Paper and Bemis.
