Creating packaging is our passion and daily mission. In this process, we take into account the rapidly changing world, trends and consumer habits. We are the changing world, so we want to share our knowledge about trends in the packaging industry. We do this so that your company can properly respond to emerging challenges and opportunities. So what is important for consumers and what are the trends in the packaging market?
Consumers are looking for unique experiences and solutions that are simply convenient. We buy more and more packaged food. As the Santander Bank Polska and Spot Data experts point out in the document “Packaging revolution. Polish producers in the face of changes in regulations and consumer preferences ”, despite the increasing impact of ecology on the industry, trends in consumption favor an increase in demand for packaging. The analyzes show that this movement will be stronger than the behavior encouraging to reduce the use of packaging.
2. Conscious consumption
On the one hand, as consumers, we are “comfortable”, but when choosing products, we also pay attention to ecological aspects. Consumers are becoming more and more aware of this, and manufacturers of packaging solutions must bear this in mind. As experts point out, sustainability is no longer an option. It has become a necessity, and packaging is an ideal medium for communicating these values. Reduction, reuse and recycling – three terms that are the key to achieving the goal of sustainable development and should be taken into account when designing packaging.
3. Changing law
Images of oceans and beaches full of rubbish or damaged ecosystems move society. Therefore, governments around the world are responding with changes in the law and new taxes. All this to limit the spread of single-use plastics. The European Union focuses on sustainable development in its legislation and uses all possible instruments to achieve this goal. These activities are aimed at reducing waste and pollution at the design stage and at operating in line with the circular economy. Packaging is at the heart of this revolution. Entrepreneurs are looking for innovations taking into account their impact on the natural environment.
