The Flexible Packaging Association recently released the FPA Flexible Packaging Industry Segment Profile Analysis. The Analysis, prepared exclusively for FPA members by PTIS, a division of HAVI Global Solutions Direct, LLC, provides a look at the US flexible packaging industry by volume (in pounds) and revenue, and composition by materials for eleven key flexible packaging formats including sub-segments of bags, pouches, lidding, shrink and stretch films.
The Analysis estimates that the US flexible packaging industry in 2012 was 17.3 billion pounds and $26.7 billion. This is the only study of the US flexible packaging industry that analyzes industry volume (pounds) and value (dollars) of each industry segment.
The Analysis is based on interviews with industry experts across researched segments, review of packaging and packaged products market studies. Also discussed in the Analysis are growth estimates for end-use markets and current industry dynamics.
