Packaging trends

  • A shift toward optimizing plastic circularity
    Despite the plastic pollution crisis and poor recycling rates, 72% of global consumers still believe plastic has an above recyclability rate relative to other materials. Thus, to improve plastic circularity, there has been an increased shift toward mono-material films for which recycling infrastructure already exists.2
  • Minimalistic packaging emerges as a growing trend
    Minimalism is a trend that has gained popularity in recent years. Consumers are increasingly drawn to simple, clean designs that are free from clutter and distractions. Sleek, minimalist packaging allows producers to convey a sense of sophistication and quality.3
  • Advent of IoT-enabled packaging solutions
    Internet of Things (IoT) enabled packaging is a powerful tool that is used to improve the efficiency and sustainability of the packaging industry. It helps track the location of products, monitor their condition, and provide real-time data to businesses.4
