Insight Flexible Packaging Industry

The flexible packaging market is one of the most dynamic packaging markets exhibiting diversified types
of packaging and materials used across the regions. This market report estimates the market size of the
global market in terms of value and volume. The end users of flexible packaging are food & beverage,
personal care products, and pharmaceutical industries. Food packaging is the major end user in terms of
value and volume. The global market value is projected to reach $99,621.9 million by 2018, growing at
a CAGR of 5.1% from 2013 to 2018. Changing taste and preferences and the high disposable income of
consumers in Asia-Pacific are making it the fastest growing market. The growing population and the
consequential demand for packaged food, beverage, personal care products, and pharmaceuticals are
driving the markets in China and India whereas the North American market will show modest growth due
to the highly saturated end-use market.
Polyethylene dominated the flexible packaging market and accounted nearly 32% of the total market
share and is projected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period. Cellulosic is the fastest
growing material that shows potential growth in the future. It is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.2%
from 2013 to 2018.
The companies with significant market shares are Amcor Ltd. (Australia), Sealed Air Corporation (U.S.),
Bemis Company Inc. (U.S.), Mondi (South Africa), Huhtamki Oyj (Finland), and Sonoco Products (U.S.).
These companies are looking forward to expand their business in the Asia-Pacific region due to the high
demand of flexible packaging in the end-use segments of the developing nations in the region. China
and India are leading in these growth trends. The flourishing food & beverage, personal care products,
and pharmaceutical processing industries and the growing consumer awareness about the benefits of
these products and their packaging types are the key fundamentals driving the flexible packaging
market in these regions.

The global flexible market has made little strides in terms of value and regaining the volume lost during
the economic slowdown. However, the market has grown considerably in the last few years and is
expected to grow at a faster pace in the near future. Factors such as growing consumer preferences
towards consuming convenient packaged food & beverages, personal care products, and pharmaceutical
is helping this global packaging industry to grow. Increasing innovations in the packaging industry help to
drive down the cost and new package types act as an important driver for the flexible packaging market.
This global flexible packaging market value was $73,825.3 million in 2012 and is projected to reach
$99,621.9 million by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2013 to 2018. The end-use sectors are
exhibiting buoyant growth driven by population growth and rising disposable incomes. This global market
was dominated by the food segment both in value and volume terms. Polyethylene and polypropylene
were the most dominant raw materials used for flexible packaging. Cellulosic was the fastest growing
market.
The global flexible packaging market is largely driven by the growth in its end-use industries. The
penchant for consumption of packaged products such as packaged food & beverage, personal care
products, and pharmaceuticals is resulting in its growth. Consumers push for convenient packaging
