Stand-up Pouches 2012 to 2016

Abstract

"Stand-up Pouches - 2012 to 2016" is the fourth global study of the stand-up pouch industry conducted by Allied Development. This 500+ page report is the definitive study of this growing industry that will reach US$4.0 billion by 2016.

The market information in "Stand-up Pouches" provides an up-to-date assessment of the stand-up pouch market including market drivers, consumption volumes, consumption values, market trends, competitive products and a quantitative forecast for many market segments.

The Economic and Environmental section provides quantitative analyses of both economic and environmental impact for competing package types. Specifically, the analysis compares a stand-up pouch, tray, and glass jar used to package baby food.

The Technology section provides an assessment of stand-up pouch designs, materials, production methods, and emerging technology. The Profiles section includes stand-up pouch manufacturers and suppliers of equipment systems.

This study was written for:

  • Converters
  • Raw Material Suppliers
  • Equipment and Machinery Suppliers
  • Package Developers
  • Brand Owners
  • Industry Analysts
