specialized management consulting firm focused on the paper and packaging industries, has completed a new study on the North American packaging paper market. The focus of this study is on identifying, quantifying, and evaluating the over 100 individual segments that make up this overall market of about 3.9 million tons and over $4.0 billion in paper sales. These segments range from small niche markets to very large volume segments with projected annual growth rates ranging from -3% to over 7% over the next five years. Papers that compete in these markets include all types of bags, wraps, liners, pouches, cushioning materials, and labels.
“There has never been an industry study of this overall paper-based market segment because it is so fragmented from a supply standpoint and the numerous market segments tend to be governed by different dynamics and performance requirements,”
There is no doubt that “companies that have a deeper understanding of these different market / product segments along with emerging / likely developments that will take place will be in a much better position to respond appropriately, focus on those segments that are the most attractive, and identify those businesses that represent the best fit with their own capabilities and strategic focus,” notes Perkowski. More information on this study can be found at the company's website at www.bd-advisory.com or by contacting Frank Perkowski at 770-643-9081.
