Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Meat, Poultry, and Seafood Packaging Market in the US 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the meat, poultry, and seafood packaging market in the US: Ardagh Packaging, Ball, Bemis, Crown Holdings, International Paper, and Sealed Air.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AEP Industries, Anchor Packaging, Berry Plastics, Bomarko, Cascades Sonoco, Coveris, Dolco Packaging, Exopack Holding, Genpak, Graphic Packaging Holding, Interflex Group, International Paper, Leucadia National, LINPAC Packaging, Packaging Corporation of America, Printpack, Robbie Manufacturing, and Reynolds Group.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A trend which is boosting market growth is the surge in demand for high barrier packaging. High-barrier packaging has higher performance than other packaging materials such as laminated structures. Specialized coatings coupled with resins are used to develop this form of packaging. Some of the high-barrier plastics used in the development of this type of packaging include biaxially-oriented polyethylene terephthalate (BOPET) and ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH). These high-barrier plastics are considered to be premium packaging materials, and are increasingly being used by food and beverage companies. The positioning of these products as premium ones is key to generating interest among high-income end-users.”

According to the report, a key growth driver is the increased consumption of meat. Meats, such as pork, beef, lamb, and mutton, are good sources of protein and constitute a significant portion of the daily diet of most people in the US. Around 6,300 meat and poultry slaughtering and processing plants operate in the country. In addition, the US exported approximately 4 billion metric tons of poultry meat in 2014, valued at $5 billion. The country is the highest source of revenue in the Americas in the meat, poultry, and seafood markets. In 2014, the meat and poultry industry processed 9 billion chickens, 35 million cattle, 260 million turkeys, 2.5 million sheep and lambs, and 125 million hogs.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could restrict market growth is a growing preference for vegan diet.
