US Clamshells in Food Packaging
Demand for clamshells used in food packaging is forecast to increase 3.4% per year to nearly $1.5 billion in 2027. Gains will be driven primarily by strong growth in a variety of applications for clamshells, including fresh prepared foods and baked goods, particularly cakes, pies, and pastries. Molded fiber and paperboard clamshell variants are becoming increasingly common due to their image of sustainability, but penetration in the retail sector will be slower than in foodservice due to the greater importance of plastic's clarity and crush resistance for baked goods, produce, and fresh prepared foods.
