US sales of pre-made stand-up pouches and laminates used in form-fill-seal pouch-making applications amounted to approaching 17 billion units in 2013.
The retort pouch has been slow to take off in the US, especially when compared to Europe; and has a long way to go before becoming a real threat to other packaging formats currently in use.
The growing use of stand-up pouches in the US is being driven by a range of factors simultaneously, including:
Pre-made pouches retain a majority share of the US stand-up pouch market with form-fill-seal currently accounting for less than one quarter of total pouch units. Beverages are the largest single end use category within the entire US stand-up pouch market. Much of their volume is accounted for by juice drinks, but the largest growth has been in frozen alcoholic cocktails.
Non-retorted pouches used for human food applications have seen high growth over the past five years, major products including frozen foods, confectionery, fruit compote and purees, dried fruit and dehydrated foods.
The two largest end use applications - wet pet foods and juice drinks - account for over half of total stand-up pouches used in the US.
US demand for stand-up pouches is forecast to grow by 42% over the next five years to reach almost 24 billion units in 2018. The overall growth rate would be even higher if not for the more modest increases expected in the largest, already mature segments.
