A better way to package

The COVID 19 pandemic has already led to some of the sharpest declines in recent times in demand for certain types of packaging while accelerating growth for others—such as packaging for e-commerce shipments that are emerging as lifelines in this new world. Such changes are presenting many packaging companies with a new set of challenges.

With plastic packaging having a significant market share, the growth of the industry is affected by the polluting effect of the material. Other than plastics, we use paper, metal and glass. This creates a need to address it scientifically and create a correct ecosystem from manufacturing to disposal. Combating these challenges advancement is happening with the use of flexible packaging materials and moving towards sustainable packaging. Technology is also playing a crucial role to make the practices in the packaging industry more consumer and environment friendly.
