Corrugated & Paperboard Boxes Market to 2016

Corrugated and solid fiber boxes will post the fastest shipment gains through 2016, a result of their position as the shipping container of choice for a broad array of durable and nondurable goods. Though folding carton shipments will increase more slowly due to competition from other packaging formats, growth will accelerate from the performance of the 2006-2011 period based on improved manufacturing output in food and beverages in light of a strengthening economy. Good opportunities are also anticipated in such markets as chemicals and pharmaceuticals, and foodservice and carryout food. Set-up box shipments are expected to continue their long-term decline due to their higher cost relative to other box types and surging levels of imports from countries (such as China) with lower labor costs. Nonetheless, overall demand will benefit from the entrenched position of set-up boxes as upscale packaging for premium confectionery products and fragrances.

Demand for corrugated and paperboard boxes in the US is projected to exceed $36 billion in 2016. Gains will be driven by an overall strengthening of the US economy following the 2007-2009 recession. Through 2016, growth will benefit from expanded food, beverage and durable goods output, as well as from a rebound in construction spending, which will stimulate demand for goods and materials used in construction applications. Advances will also reflect a trend toward more expensive boxes such as corrugated types, folding cartons that offer high-quality graphics and printing, and boxes that are retail- or shelf-ready.

Food and beverages represent the largest single market for corrugated and paperboard boxes, accounting for 50 percent of total demand in 2011. The beverage and frozen food segments are expected to post the fastest gains, with sugar and confectionery, and grain mill product uses expected to increase more slowly. Despite sustainability efforts aimed at reducing excess packaging by eliminating boxes and cartons or reducing the amount of paperboard used in food and beverage cartons, continued high oil prices and the good environmental profile of paperbased packaging will support ongoing use of boxes in the vast food and beverage market. The durable goods and nonmanufacturing markets are expected to post above average gains through 2016, supported by a recovery in the broader economy. Moreover, a rebound in construction expenditures will drive demand for household appliances, furniture and other durable goods, as well as related boxes. The continuing popularity of online shopping will propel healthy gains for corrugated boxes used in the fulfillment of Internet sales.

Competitive Benchmarking of Decorative Coatings Companies in Asia Pacific

Over the next two years the Asia Pacific decorative coatings market is projected to continue to grow above the global average. The Asia Pacific region is an important and growing part of the global coatings marketplace. Unlike other regions of the world, the Asia Pacific region has continued to grow, even in the face of the global recession. In particular, China and India have shown the greatest levels of growth, with China becoming the world’s largest coatings market in terms of volume. Over the next five years these growth trends are projected to continue with China and India leading the way. From a market segment standpoint, decorative coatings are forecast to experience positive rate of growth to 2012 in the region.

The end-user segments of the residential, commercial, and construction markets in the Asia Pacific region have experienced robust growth. The optimistic economic scenario in most of the nations in the Asia Pacific region, particularly in China and India, was the driver for these end-user segments.

Countries such as the Philippines, Indonesia, and Vietnam have lower purchasing power, which decreases the demand for high-performance and premium-grade paints in these regions. The increase in raw material pricing will also affect the margins of the paint manufacturers.

A majority of the decorative coating products offered in the market are water-based products and have very low concentrations of volatile organic compounds. Heat-reflective and dirt-resistant paints are major revenue generators in the tropical countries.

Market Opportunities and Business Strategies in Private Label Branding in Brazil

Private labels accounted for a market share of 3.8% in Brazil in 2007. This figure grew by 0.7% during the review period to reach a market share of 4.5% in 2011. The global financial crisis led to consumers becoming more value-conscious. Brazilian consumers have become more willing to try private label products at the expense of branded products in order to save on their grocery expenditure.

The growing share of organised retail in Brazil meant that retailers continued to improve on the quality of their private label products and started marketing them between the leading and discounted brands. While the low cost of private labels continued to be the key driving factor, manufacturers started entering the premium market by offering high value products. Over the forecast period, private labels are expected to record positive growth and be driven by consumer demand for high-value products.

There is an increasing trend of collaborative product development in the Brazilian market. As a part of this trend, companies are involving consumers in product development activity. Some of Brazil’s key private label product categories include paper napkins, paper towels, alcoholic drinks, carpet cleaner and disinfectant.

Research Report on Supply & Demand of Dairy and Products in China 2011/2012

This report depicts the complete picture of the status of China’s dairy industry in 2011, including production of raw milk and processed products, dairy consumption, dairy trade, trend of the price for raw milk and processed products, operation of the dairy industry, dairy market competition situation, revenues of the key processing companies and investment situation. The report also covers the situation of production, consumption and trade of the main dairy producing and trading countries, the impact from the world dairy market to China’s dairy industry. The report also has a forecast on the trend of China’s dairy industrial development in 2012.

2011 was an important turning point for the development of China’s dairy industry, there was acceleration of the transition from coarse quantity growth to intensive quality efficiency, and there was transition from super conventional unregulated development towards stable orderly growth. There were both opportunities and challenges for China’s dairy industry.

From the perspective of challenges, CPI kept on moving up and there was overall surge of commodity price in 2011. The price for feed and fodder, price for fuel and labor rose, these raised the production cost of raw milk constantly. More and more smallholder farmers were forced to give up dairy farming thanks to the faster growth of both cost and expenditure than price for milk. During the same period of time, the input-output efficiency of scaled farming was much better than that of the smallholders, whereas the proportion of scaled farming in raw milk production climbed rapidly. China is one of the countries that had the global highest raw milk price. The too high raw milk price did not only weaken the competitiveness of China’s dairy industry in the world, but also made it difficult to export dairy exports and imposed a huge cost pressure on domestic dairy processing companies. Processing companies were forced to adjust their product structure and to raise the proportion of high value added products so as to maintain and improve the gross profit margin. The too high dairy price restrained consumption, the per capita dairy consumption of residents lingered at the same level. In 2011 the domestic price for raw milk and milk-based raw materials sustained at a high level, whereas the international products were more competitive than the domestic made both in quality and price. Meanwhile the negative impacts from the dairy quality and safety incidents did not vanish completely, there was a continual growth of dairy import to China, especially both full-cream and skim milk powder which saw a record level of import. Raw material milk powder import is estimated to be close to 500,000 tons in 2011, up 20% from 2010. The huge import brought a primary impact on China’s milk powder sector and even the whole dairy farming sector which face a severe market environment.

Innovation Centring on Consumer Need to Drive Growth in Home Care

The economic downturn proved challenging for home care, with cheaper brands offering strong innovations at lower prices triggering a round of price promotion, making it difficult to drive value growth. Consumer demand in emerging markets is increasingly reflecting that of developed markets as they seek more specialised products. Going forward, brands perceived as good value for money, with a regionally diverse presence, are expected to drive strong growth.
Growth in Western markets is almost entirely dependent on successful product launches and marketing campaigns, due to market maturity. Despite these difficulties, Western markets remain key, as consumers have higher spending power. North America and Western Europe combined are projected to post over US$1.4 billion in absolute growth between 2010 and 2015.

Home Care Market

Emerging markets are growing fast, as increasing incomes prompt consumers to expand their cleaning regime and to embrace more sophisticated products. Consumers are becoming increasingly savvy, and manufacturers are having to adapt their products to meet regional preferences.

    Industrial and Commercial Electric Vehicles 2012-2022

    The report provides forecasts of the heavy industrial, light industrial & commercial, bus and taxi global markets by numbers, ex-factory price and total market value for the coming decade. In addition to chapters on these sectors, there are chapters on the market drivers, the key technologies and their future trends all pulled together with summary charts, graphs and profiles of latest company activity.

    The market for electric industrial vehicles is already large because, by law, forklifts have to be electric when used indoors. Little growth remains in this market but outdoors almost all earthmoving and lifting vehicles use the conventional internal combustion engine. That is about to change dramatically because hybrid electric versions reduce cost of ownership and exposure to price hikes with fossil fuels. Hybrids increasingly perform better as well, with more power from stationary, ability to supply electricity to other equipment and other benefits including less noise and pollution. On the other hand, airports, often government owned or funded, are under great pressure to finish converting their Ground Support Equipment GSE to pure electric versions both on and off the tarmac partly using federal grants.

    Yet another industrial trend is for use of electric vehicles to replace slow and often dangerous manual procedures. Sometimes a self-powered indoor crane replaces scaffolding. An electric stair climber replaces human effort and possible injury. On the other hand, sit-on floor cleaners in buildings, sit-on ice cleaners in ice rinks, outrider vehicles carried on trash collection trucks and a host of similar solutions speed processes and reduce injuries and costs.

    Who should buy this report?
    Those developing or making electric vehicles of all types. Those purchasing industrial and commercial electric vehicles. Other interested parties such as service providers, technology researchers, investors and government legislators and supports of the industry.

      Smart Meters to 2016

      Smart meter product and service demand in the US is projected to increase more than eleven percent annually to $4.4 billion in 2016. Advances will be driven by the rising penetration of smart meters, particularly advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) products. In addition, the rising share of smart meters in use over the decade supports demand for related parts and services as well as for replacement of older models.

      This study covers the US market for smart meter products and services, defined here to include smart meters (both advanced metering infrastructure, or AMI, and automatic meter reading, or AMR, products); smart meter parts and accessories (e.g., meter and control software, and communications modules and controls) and smart meter installation and integration services. These meter products are used by utilities to measure customer usage and are sometimes referred to as “revenue meters.” Metering devices used to measure fluid or electric flows in industrial or commercial processes as well as sensing and measure devices used in a utilities’ transmission or distribution networks are excluded from this report.

      Electric market to outpace natural gas, water segments
      The penetration rates between the different segments of the market are expected to rise at different paces, with the electric market seeing the fastest increases, rising eight percent annually to 75 percent of all electric meters installed by 2016. In addition, the electric market will see the fastest increases in AMI penetration, with AMI meters expected to be more than half of all smart meters installed in the electric segment by 2016.

      Reflecting the rapid increases in meter penetration, demand for smart meters will also increase most rapidly in the electric market, with gains of twelve percent annually through 2016. While not rising as fast as in the electric market, demand in both the natural gas and water segments will also increase rapidly, approaching ten percent annually in each of those markets.

      Decorative Laminates Industry

      US demand for decorative laminates is forecast to advance 5.4 percent per year to 12.4 billion square feet in 2015, a rebound from the 2005-2010 period. The state of the decorative laminates industry is sensitive to changes in the overall economy, as well as spending in new construction, and building remodeling and repairs. During 2005 to 2010, the decorative laminates industry contracted in light of macroeconomic recessionary conditions in the latter part of that period and a downturn in the housing market. Going forward, continued improvement in the housing market, lower unemployment and greater credit availability will boost the potential market for laminates used in applications such as cabinets, countertops, flooring, furniture and wall panels.

      Consumer perception of laminates as workhorse material to boost gains
      Advances will also be stimulated by the consumer perception of decorative laminates as the workhorse surfacing material, providing a low-cost, lowmaintenance, durable surface. Competition from alternative materials is intense as other materials are often chosen due to consumer preference for a more natural appearance or feel, or for a surface that can be renewed when damaged. In order to compete, decorative laminate manufacturers focus on developing advanced printing techniques that create patterns and textures that rival the aesthetics of alternative materials such as solid wood or natural stone, but at a lower cost.

      Cabinets to remain largest market; flooring to be fastest growing
      The cabinet market will continue to account for the single largest share of decorative laminates demand in 2015. Decorative laminates will largely benefit from a rebound in cabinet production, based on accelerated domestic demand from an improving US housing market and expanding export opportunities. In addition, gains will be led by rising interest in decorative laminates as a less costly alternative to lumber, particularly exotic hardwoods, and wood veneers in cabinet production.

      The flooring market for decorative laminates will record the most rapid gains through 2015, fueled by the expected rebound in new housing construction and improvements in residential improvement and repair spending through 2015. Advances will also be supported by improvements, such as enhanced durability, and manufacturers’ ongoing introductions of versions that resemble natural stone or tile flooring, as well as such costly and exotic wood species as bamboo and mahogany.

      This study analyzes the US market for decorative laminates. Historical data are provided for 2000, 2005 and 2010, with forecasts provided for 2015 and 2020. Demand is presented for US sales of decorative laminates by type (low-basis weight paper, saturated paper, vinyl films, decorative foils, highpressure laminates and edgebanding) and by market (cabinets, countertops, flooring furniture, store fixtures, wall panels and other markets). Demand is presented in millions of square feet and millions of US dollars at the manufacturers’ level. The entire study is framed within the overall industry’s economic and market environment. Electrical, electronic and other industrial laminates are not included within the scope of this study because they do not perform any decorative functions.
