Prospects of the U.S. flexible packaging market
2005 the U.S. flexible packaging market will face a bright future. The continuous growth of upright small bags will drive the continuous warming of the U.S. flexible packaging market. According to the statistics of the official website of the flexible packaging Association, the current flexible packaging industry in the United States has a market share of 20billion US dollars, which is the second largest packaging industry in the United States. In addition, despite the slow economic recovery in the United States, industry experts and researchers still expect that the flexible packaging market will continue to grow in the next few years
"market demand will continue to grow", Mr. Dennis kalamsa, President of alliefles technology company, as a marketing consultant, has a deep understanding of this. The company provides flexible packaging machinery and equipment to North and South American markets. He believes that the flexible packaging market has increased significantly by 10 ~ 15%, and has reached 20% in some regions
according to the research of "variable flexible packaging" by Freedonia group, the growth trend has several characteristics. Many of the growth comes from the development of insulating materials, breathable soft films and sealable upright small pocket materials. In addition, the improvement of electronic plate making technology has also stimulated the growth of the demand for exquisite packaging
the growth of flexible packaging is largely due to food packaging. According to the statistics of Freedonia group, it is expected to increase by 2.6% annually by 2008. This will affect the sharp increase of bag packaging on shelves, which is undoubtedly a good phenomenon on the road of the development of flexible packagingStarkist has set an example for American food companies. The company introduced fresh-keeping bagged tuna five years ago. At that time, the application of distilled foil bags had increased to 10% of the total sales of tuna. More importantly, in July 2003, the company opened a new taste of tuna, and this bag packaging is still a success. According to the data published by the company in August 2003, this new product accounted for 4% of all the sales of bagged tuna in the market, and exceeded 37% of the company's total sales
small bag packaging is now the trend pursued by some of the country's largest food companies. They all want to wait and see. With the development and application of flexible packaging, what will replace traditional packaging? Before a large amount of new funds are injected into the market, as an attempt, multinational companies have begun to introduce this kind of small bag packaging, because it has a number of value-added properties, such as recyclability, more exquisite production, better freshness and longer shelf life, and even cost savings in some cases
according to another report of Freedonia, "rigid and flexible food containers", by 2007, the market demand for food containers in the United States will reach US $18.7 billion in the next three years, while the use share of small bags and ordinary bags used in food packaging is expected to reach US $7.2 billion. The research report also shows that small bags will win more opportunities than ordinary bags. It is expected that the demand for small bags will increase by 6.3% annually by 2007
Mr. kalamsa also believes that flexible packaging is endangering the development of rigid packaging and carton packaging, but this process will not happen overnight, but will gradually change, just as most of the packaging of other materials will be replaced by it or jointly occupy the market for decades, this change is bound to have a transition period
except for small pockets, the profit of flexible packaging increased slowly, but rigid packaging and carton packaging companies began to investigate the assets of flexible packaging materials. Storage and transportation are the two main areas where rigid packaging cannot compete with flexible packaging, which is also an important reason why flexible packaging can save considerable costs. For example, a minimum loading capacity of flexible packaging (prefabricated small bags or reel materials) can be equal to the loading capacity of 25 rigid materials. These companies are realizing that logistics can not only save costs, but also increase profits for the overall cost structure, and they are beginning to operate these savings well
the U.S. flexible packaging market will continue to face their old competitor rigid packaging. After the 9.11 incident, the American hearing Industry Association attached great importance to the interests of hearing containers. Similarly, in order to compete with the convenience of flexible packaging, metal hearing companies also increased convenience properties, such as easy to open pull rings. Mr. kalamsa also made a corresponding comment on this, "it is clear that the growth of flexible packaging market share has received great attention from listening companies. At the same time, listening companies also design their product packaging more modern and more conducive to competition. These advances will ultimately serve American consumers"
in addition, the competition from foreign flexible packaging suppliers and agents has brought more arduous challenges to the U.S. flexible packaging market. Foreign companies that buy flexible film bases are ahead of American packaging enterprises. In the past few years, most of the flexible packaging enterprises have directly imported technology from abroad. In foreign countries, there are many kinds of bag making, which is close to the playground of Oregon State University, and improved materials have become the mainstream
the main threat from overseas is that more and more flexible packaging enterprises in Europe and Asia have reached vertical alliances, and they are ready to expand into the global economy. "As an industry, what we can do is emergency stop: with an emergency stop switch, we are ready to adapt to the fierce growth trend in front of us and make appropriate responses." Mr karamsa said, "The biggest challenge for the flexible packaging industry in North America is the overseas flexible packaging suppliers, who pay attention to the U.S. market, the U.S. population, the total cost of free repair and replacement of defective parts or complete machines and the potential growth trend of our users. I think we also see that the U.S. and foreign flexible packaging companies will have more strategic alliances in the next few years, and the alliance is helping American companies win the global market of tensile testing The field plays an important role "
"some enterprises that contribute to the future growth of flexible packaging are now in a strong trend." Ms. Elizabeth, general manager of Aloca flexible packaging company, believes that in the period of slow economic recovery, it is imperative to implement feasible financial solutions, and it is also crucial to take advantage of the rising market. Ms. Elizabeth has a wealth of experience in this regard. Aloca recently completed the company's management and monitoring system, which is conducive to the company to improve its price system, including "business activities that constitute the product processing process, reduce the variability of products, identify problems and quickly solve problems". The system will eventually lead to an increase in output, a reduction in raw material consumption and better safety performance to serve customers
