Description

Demand for pouches will continue to benefit from convenience features, the popularity of snacking, and the transition from rigid to flexible packaging. Brand owners in both food and nonfood markets are enjoying cost savings and sustainability benefits from the reduced material requirements of pouches. Value-added features such as handles, spouts, and reclosable zippers help meet consumer demand for convenience. Overall, the market for pouches is forecast to grow 3.9% annually through 2022 to $10.5 billion.

‘Pouches’ addresses the following questions and more:

  • How will prospects for fast-growing products such as spouted pouches and baby food pouches change going forward?
  • In which markets will stand-up pouches displace existing packaging formats?
  • How will sustainability concerns influence pouch demand?
