The report analyzes the Thermoformed Plastics Products market landscape and growth prospects for the coming years ahead, as well as identifies packaging design trends, machinery process improvements as well as continued challenges, advances in tooling, materials pricing trends and sustainable packaging issues.

Thermoforming is a manufacturing process that heats plastic sheet to a pliable forming temperature then forms it to a specific shape in a mold, and trims it to create a component or end-use product. The sheet or ‘film’ is heated in an oven to a high-enough temperature that allows it to be stretched into or onto a mold and cooled to a finished shape.

Thermoformers serving the packaging industry continue to thrive in 2015 with innovation in packaging design options fueling growth and new opportunities.

Key questions answered in this report:
