Meat, Poultry & Seafood Packaging

US demand for meat, poultry and seafood packaging will increase three percent annually through 2015. Flexible packaging will continue to outpace rigid types, bolstered by good opportunities for high barrier film and pouches. The ready-to-eat market will grow the fastest, driven by the growing range of prepared foods in the retail sector.

This study analyzes the $7.9 billion US meat packaging industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by technology (e.g., case-ready, modified atmosphere packaging), raw material, 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 36 industry players, including Sealed Air, Bemis and International Paper.
