Packaging manufacturers zero in on safety, recyclability, and cost-friendly options for products like convenience foods. 

OVER the past few years, the global packaging industry has improved with the significant rise in sales of food packaging containers and technologies. TechNavio’s analysts predict the global food packaging market will grow at around 8 percent between 2015 and 2020. The growth is attributed to consumer demand for convenience foods. Better product packaging has thus become important to food manufacturers, as consumers tend to select the safest food products nowadays as their living standards improve. Furthermore, manufacturers are more focused on environmentally safe containers, a trend that is driving demand for recyclable products.

Consumer demand continues to prompt the food packaging industry for breakthroughs; industry players want equipment that will enhance efficiency, functionality and provide other intelligent features.

Emerging trends in food packaging

The rapid growth of urbanization and growth in technological innovations have pushed the development of more food packaging. Three major trends sum up today's packaging market:

i)        Personalization: Technological advancements have given rise to the surge of personalization. For instance in the last couple of years, Nutella offered personalized jars, and Coca Cola launched a personalized campaign with people’s names and birthdays on the cans. All these successful examples have brought the trend to the fore of global mainstream.

ii)      Zero-waste initiatives: Companies and consumers alike are becoming more aware of innovative recycling methods and the benefits of implementing these. Brand giants such as Coca-Cola and Carlsberg are leading the way with eco-friendly packaging, and this will definitely encourage many other food and beverage brands to follow in its footsteps and go green with their packaging.

iii)    Convenience: Convenience is a major selling point for food and beverage packaging. Features such as ease of opening, resealability, portability, and lighter weight, are benefits that influence consumers’ purchasing decisions positively.
