The demand of protective packaging in the US is predicted to increase 4.5% per year and to reach to $6.4 billion in 2018.

In addition to an rising in manufacturing output, protective packaging demand growth in the manufacturing market will be aided by the shifting of some basic manufacturing operations back to the US, a shift of the outsourcing trend of recent decades that has limited US manufacturing gains. These factors will go better for related protective packaging, especially plastic foam, molded pulp, and paperboard protectors.  Rolled foams provide good cushioning and abrasion resistance performance along with the ability to protect irregularly shaped items. Molded pulp will continue to make inroads into molded foam applications as product manufacturers increasingly focus on the sustainability of their packaging, especially in light of retailer initiatives that rate vendors more highly when their packaging meets certain guidelines.
