Converted Flexible Packaging
Growth in the US converted flexible packaging market will total 3.3 percent annually in value terms through 2019.  Advances will be supported by inherent cost and performance advantages of lightweight bags and pouches, which will drive further conversions from rigid to flexible formats.  
Pouches to remain fastest growing format
Above average increases for pouches will reflect continued expansion into new food and nonfood applications and greater use of value-added features, such as spouts, fitments, and carrying handles.  
Plastic film dominates material use
Plastic film is by far the leading material for converted flexible packaging.  While polyethylene and polypropylene are the most commonly used films, faster growth is expected for higher performing films such as polyester and nylon.  
Pharmaceutical and medical products to fuel nonfood market opportunities
In pharmaceutical and medical uses, above average gains will be fueled by a steadily aging population, the significance of unit-of-use packaging, and improvements in barrier and ease-of-use properties.
