The flexible packaging market is one of the most dynamic packaging markets exhibiting diversified types of packaging and materials used across the regions. This market report estimates the market size of the global market in terms of value and volume. The end users of flexible packaging are food & beverage, personal care products, and pharmaceutical industries. Food packaging is the major end user in terms of value and volume. The global market value is projected to reach $99,621.9 million by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2013 to 2018. Changing taste and preferences and the high disposable income of consumers in Asia-Pacific are making it the fastest growing market. The growing population and the consequential demand for packaged food, beverage, personal care products, and pharmaceuticals are driving the markets in China and India whereas the North American market will show modest growth due to the highly saturated end-use market.

Polyethylene dominated the flexible packaging market and accounted nearly 32% of the total market share and is projected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period. Cellulosic is the fastest growing material that shows potential growth in the future. It is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2013 to 2018.

The companies with significant market shares are Amcor Ltd. (Australia), Sealed Air Corporation (U.S.), Bemis Company Inc. (U.S.), Mondi (South Africa), Huhtamäki Oyj (Finland), and Sonoco Products (U.S.). These companies are looking forward to expand their business in the Asia-Pacific region due to the high demand of flexible packaging in the end-use segments of the developing nations in the region. China and India are leading in these growth trends. The flourishing food & beverage, personal care products, and pharmaceutical processing industries and the growing consumer awareness about the benefits of these products and their packaging types are the key fundamentals driving the flexible packaging market in these regions.
