Packaging styles, similar to those in the pharma and food & beverage industries, are moving away from rigid plastic and glass containers toward portable stick packs and flexible pouches. The total global market is anticipated to grow from about $209 billion in 2017 to $373 billion in 2025.
  • 2017 Cannabis White Paper - Most people involved with the cannabis industry are aware of the risks, especially in terms of legal status, but believe the potential rewards out-weight them. Overall, there is a belief that cannabis will become a mainstream, but heavily regulated, product in the U.S. in the next 10 years, like alcohol and tobacco. Large food and beverage companies are eying the market and positioning themselves to be ready to move once the federal threat is removed. In the meantime, because processing, packaging and retail must be state-specific, suppliers to the cannabis industry must have local teams that understand the regulations and peculiarities of each market.
