Specialty Packaging Papers Special Market Analysis Study

Mon, Apr 01, 2013

Changes in consumer preferences, rising petrochemical costs and increasing government regulation have caused food and consumer products companies to look for alternatives to plastic-based packaging. As demand for paper-based packaging grows, key specialty grades could evolve to replace certain film-based packaging options.
