Active & Intelligent Packaging

Active & Intelligent Packaging

Growth in the US active and intelligent packaging market will total 7.3% annually through 2019 in value terms.  Gains will be driven by the introduction of intelligent components in the packaging for a number of consumer products.  Demand will also be helped by food safety concerns, which lead to greater adoption of packaging materials that extend the shelf life of packaged contents or monitor product status during shipping and storage.


This report segments the active and intelligent packaging industry by Product and Market.  Data is provided in million US dollars.

Active and intelligent packaging products include:
Gas Scavengers
Corrosion Control Packaging
Moisture Control Packaging
Susceptor Packaging 
Antimicrobial Packaging
Self-Venting Materials
Color Indicating Packaging
Time-Temperature Indicators
Smartphone-Enabled Interactive Packaging
Compliance Monitoring Packaging

Gas scavengers will remain the largest of these through 2019.  Fast growth will be seen for antimicrobial packaging and smartphone-enabled interactive packaging, though both of these will remain relatively niche products.  

Major markets include:
Food
Beverages
Pharmaceuticals
Primary Metals
Motor Vehicles
Electronics

Food was the leading outlet in 2014.  The most rapid gains through 2019 are forecast for the pharmaceuticals market, fueled by the proliferation of pharmaceuticals that need high performance packaging as well as federal regulations that require producers to track pharmaceutical shipments.

Participants in the active and intelligent packaging industry range from packaging and chemical industry leaders to small firms involved in the development of a single product type or technology.  Participants in this industry include Amcor, Clariant International, Cortec, Coveris Holdings, Graphic Packaging, Multisorb, NOVIPAX, Plastipak Holdings, Reynolds Group, Rocky Mountain Metal Container, Sealed Air, and Temptime.
