FLEXIBLE BULK PACKAGING DEMAND TO REACH $7 BILLION

Cost benefits and increased performance efficiency are expected to drive U.S. demand for flexible bulk packaging to $7 billion in 2009, a growth of 3.4% per year.

That will create a market for 6.2 billion lb of raw materials, 60% of which will be plastics. Although growth in this market will decelerate from its 1999-2004 pace, future advances will benefit from healthy outlooks for manufacturing and retail activity. Those trends are reported in a new 282-page study, Flexible Bulk Packaging, from The Freedonia Group. Fastest growth is anticipated for film wrap and flexible intermediate bulk containers.
