Retail Ready Packaging

Growth in the US retail ready packaging market will total 5.2% annually through 2020, reaching $6.2 billion.  Gains will be driven by the appeal of retail ready packaging (RRP) due to the marketing and handling advantages.  The popularity of club stores and discount grocery outlets will also lead to advances. 

This report segments the retail ready packaging industry by Type and Market.  Data is provided in million US dollars.

Retail ready packaging product types include:
Corrugated Boxes
Corrugated Floor Displays
Folding Cartons
Reusable Plastic Containers 
Pad & Shrink Film Packaging

Corrugated boxes will remain the largest of these through 2020.  Corrugated boxes will also see the fastest growth among major product types, driven by increases in the retail user base as well as the low cost and printability of corrugated material.  

Major retail ready packaging markets include:
Food 
Beverages
Nonfood

Food was the leading outlet in 2015.  Strong gains through 2020 are forecast for the snack food market, fueled by its high use of retail displays and the variety of distribution channels for related products.

Despite the presence of box industry leaders, the retail ready packaging industry is fairly fragmented due to the frequent need for shorter production runs with specialized requirements.  Industry participants include Brambles, Georgia Pacific, Graphic Packaging, International Paper, KapStone Paper and Packaging, Menasha, Packaging Corporation of America, PaperWorks Industries, Polymer Logistics, Sonoco Products, and West Rock.
