  • Converted Flexible PackagingPublished:October 2011No.Of Pages:422Price:US $ 5100Report SummaryUS demand to exceed $18 billion in 2015Demand for converted flexible packaging in the US is expected to exceed$18 billion in 2015. Gains will reflect a rebound in the US economy and willbe supported by cost, performance and source reduction advantages overmost rigid packaging formats. Rising demand for convenience-oriented andother further processed food items, which often use more costly higherbarrier packaging materials for extended shelf life, will also propel growth.Converted flexible packaging’s source reduction capabilities will beincreasingly advantageous in light of initiatives by major retailers andpackaged goods firms to evaluate the packaging used by their suppliers interms of eco-friendliness and cost reduction. Pouches to exhibitaboveaverage annual gains Above-average gains for pouches will be drivenby continued conversions to standup pouches and healthy gains for flatpouches in a number of markets. Demand will also benefit from the presenceof convenience features (e.g., zippers,spouts) and the emergence of newapplications and product types, such as flat-bottomed, side-gussetedpouches and hybrid pouch/folding carton products. In addition, stick poucheswill experience rapid growth in single-portion packaging uses based onadvantages of product differentiation and portability. Growth for bags willincrease at a faster pace than in the 2005-2010 period based on anexpected recovery in the US economy from the 2007-2009recession.However, gains will lag the overall converted flexible packagingaverage due to the maturity of many applications along with competitionfrom pouches and rigid packaging. While demand for paper bags and sackswill be constrained by performance limitations relative to plastic bags andsacks, growing efforts by packaged goods firms to demonstrate theircommitment to sustainability will lead to some degree of renewed interest inpaper, which possesses such qualities as renewability, recyclability andcompostability.
  • Demographic, eating trends to benefit food applicationsAbove-average growth in food applications will be driven by the need formore costly films for extended shelf life along with demographic trends suchas increased numbers of single-person and empty nest households andhouseholds where all adults work. These trends will boost demand for foodin smaller package sizes and more convenient foods designed to reduce foodpreparation time. Trends toward healthier eating and increased “on-the-run”eating will spurfood manufacturers to expand their offerings of products,especially snacks,baked goods and beverages, in singleserving packages.Such products require more packaging than standard packages of similaritems. The fastest growing food packaging markets for converted flexiblepackaging will be beverage, meat and related products, and snack fooduses. In nonfood applications, advances will be led by above-average gainsin the pharmaceutical and medical product markets based on heightenedbarrier requirements, cost and convenience advantages, and adaptability togowing unit-of-use requirements. Moreover,benefits including productvisibility,pilferage protection and good barrier properties will supportcontinued demand in a broad range of uses.Study coverageThis new Freedonia industry study,Converted Flexible Packaging, is priced at$5100.
