Recovery in consumer spending over the past five years has underpinned industry growth during the period. As US consumption has risen, manufacturers have expanded production, thereby increasing demand for industry services and increasing revenue. Over the five years to 2021, IBISWorld expects the industry to continue growing, albeit at a slower pace than the previous period. Organic growth in the economy, including increased consumer spending, will drive revenue growth. However, growth in demand drivers is not expected to be strong enough to cause high revenue growth values, and increased internalization of packaging by growing manufacturers may stymie revenue.
