MicroMarketMonitor projects the U.S. flexible packaging market to grow from USD 23.72 billion in 2016 to USD 29.64 billion by 2021, at an estimated CAGR of 4.56%. The demand for flexible packaging is increasing from various end user industries, such as food & beverages, cosmetics & toiletries, healthcare, and others (oil & lubricants, electronic goods, agricultural products, and sporting goods). Growth in the manufacturing industry has led to an increase in demand for flexible packaging.

 

The U.S. flexible packaging market is segmented on the basis of material, pack type, printing technology, application, and region. On the basis of material, the plastic films segment accounted for the largest market share in 2015. This segment is also projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period, in terms of both volume and value. This is primarily because of plastic films’ high quality, low cost, and excellent barrier properties. By pack type, the retort pouches segment is projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period owing to the high barrier properties of retort pouches against oxygen and moisture. In this type of packaging, food is thermally processed in order to increase the shelf life. The stand-up pouches segment is estimated to account for largest market share by 2021.

 

Among printing technologies, flexography is the most widely used technology. In 2015, the flexography segment accounted for the largest share, in terms of both volume and value. However, the digital printing technology segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Digital printing is much cheaper than other technologies and provides a wide range of printing options. On the basis of application, the U.S. flexible packaging market is segmented into food & beverages, cosmetics & toiletries, healthcare, and others (household products, oil & lubricants, agricultural products, and sporting goods). The food & beverages segment accounted for the largest market share in 2015, and is projected to grow at the second-highest rate from 2016 to 2021. Changing consumer lifestyles and the growing consumption of food & beverage products will drive the U.S. flexible packaging market.

 

The U.S. flexible packaging market is segmented, region-wise, into Northeast, West, Midwest, Southwest, and Southeast. The Southwest region is projected to grow at the highest rate from 2016 to 2021. Rapid growth in the food & beverage and healthcare sectors have significantly impacted the growth of the U.S. flexible packaging market.

There are certain factors that hinder the growth of this market. Stringent government regulations may inhibit the market’s growth, while recyclability of the packaging material could be a major challenge.

 

The strategy of mergers & acquisitions accounted for 48% of the total strategic growth developments in the U.S. flexible packaging market from 2011 to 2016. Companies adopted this strategy to increase their geographical reach and strengthen their product portfolios. This strategy was largely adopted by some of the leading flexible packaging products manufacturing companies, such as Bemis Company, Inc. (U.S.), Sonoco Products Company (U.S.), Sealed Air Corporation (U.S.), Berry Plastics Group, Inc. (U.S.), and Coveris Holdings S.A. (U.S.).
