Industry Overview
The article offers information related to the paper and packaging industry in the U.S. The industry reflects variations in its performance between 2000 to 2004. During 2000, the manufacturing of paper had declined resulting in the decreased demand for containers. By 2004, the demand of paper product increased and the industry yielded good revenues. The employment rate that has declined due to the increasing productivity and big reductions in overhead costs, is expected to improve in 2004 and 2005.
