Eight out of 10 layer pads sold are used in the beverages end user industry
The coming years will witness increasing demand for layer pads across various end user industries, which will demand more customised layer pads packaging solutions to meet diverse packaging needs. Among the different end user industries, beverages packaging will be the largest consumer of layer pads throughout the forecast period 2017 – 2027 and will monopolise the global layer pads market. The beverages segment is estimated to hold a whopping 80% value share of the global layer pads market during the forecast period, leaving the other end user base segments way behind in terms of both demand for and consumption of layer pads. In fact, according to Future Market Insights analysis, the other end user base segments such as food & agro products, electronics, chemical, and manufacturing are likely to hold a single digit value share in the global beverage layer pads market throughout the period of assessment.

Beverages is the most attractive end user segment in the Western Europe layer pads market with an anticipated market share of 84.4% in terms of revenue in 2017. A high consumption of beverages in Western Europe is likely to fuel the growth of the layer pads market in the region. Western Europe accounts for over 30% of the global alcoholic beverage market and over 18% of the global non-alcoholic beverage market. Given this high consumption, Western Europe is expected to be the second largest contributor to the global layer pads market. However, despite the large volume share in the global layer pads market, the demand for plastic layer pads is moving at a slower pace due to slow growth of the manufacturing sector in the Western Europe region.
