Protective Packaging

As Quoted In CEE Packaging

US protective packaging demand will grow 4.6 percent annually through 2012, driven by manufacturing growth and the proliferation of Internet commerce. Fastest advances are anticipated for air pillows and insulated shipping containers, with protective mailers and bubble packaging also logging above-average growth.

This study analyzes the $4.1 billion US protective packaging industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1997, 2002 and 2007, with forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by product (e.g., molded foam, foamed-in-place polyurethane, polyolefin rolls, protective mailers, paperboard protectors, bubble packaging, insulated shipping containers, air pillows, paper fill, dunnage bags, loose-fill, molded pulp); material and application.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 47 major players, including Sealed Air, Pregis and Tegrant.
