REPORT HIGHLIGHTS

The global plastic rigid food packaging market was estimated at almost 30 billion pounds in 2013. The market is expected to reach about 31.1 billion pounds in 2014 and 37.2 billion pounds by 2019, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.7% from 2014 to 2019.

This report provides:

  • An overview of the global market for rigid food packaging.
  • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2013, estimates for 2014, and projections of CAGRs through 2019.
  • Segmentation of the market by major application which include bottles; dairy, meat and deli containers; molded and thermoformed containers made up mostly of liquid foods; prepared foods (e.g., frozen, microwave, dual-ovenables); and food service packaging.
  • Quantitative assessments of individual plastics usage in key markets.
  • Descriptions of the roles of the many companies involved in rigid food packaging such as molders, thermoformers, and converters.
  • Comprehensive profiles of major players in the industry.

SCOPE OF THE STUDY

This report covers key resins used in rigid food packaging, segmented by the major applications including: bottles, dairy, meat/deli, prepared food, containers, foodservice plates, cups, other food containers, and miscellaneous food packaging products.

The major resins covered include polyethylene terephthalate (PET), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), polystyrene (PS), polypropylene (PP), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), polycarbonates (PC), styrene block copolymers (SBCs), polyvinylchloride (PVC) and others.

Coverage is specific in terms of analyzing pre-packaged foods in rigid packaging and excludes non-prepackaged rigid packaging but includes foodservice uses such as trays for holding meals, utensils, and cups. The market data represents global consumption of plastics in rigid food packaging.

In addition to evaluations of the many technologies involved, this report quantitatively assesses individual plastics usage in the key markets; provides rationales for the trends within each market sector; describes the roles of the many companies involved such as injection and blow molders, and thermoformers and discusses the structure of the industry, the ever-increasing importance of recycling, and other critical issues such as non-petroleum source materials.
