The packaging industry is constantly evolving with packaging becoming more than just a protective outer layer. Packaging serves as the primary face of the product and is very important for the promotion of the brand and attracting customers. Packaging is also being altered to suit the needs of the fast food consumer who are rapidly replacing traditional meals with packaged foodstuff.  This has increased the need for testing the packaging of products to ensure higher shelf life and the reduction of costs normally associated with damaged goods.

The global package testing market is estimated to grow from USD 12.25 billion in 2016 to USD 27.89 billion by the end of 2021 at a CAGR of 14.70%. The market is expected to register considerable growth in the APAC, Latin America and European regions.

Packaging plays a significant part in the assurance of the quality and integrity of the product inside. It not only affects the product but also manifests itself in the end-product in which the product is used. Governments across the world are implementing rigorous guidelines to ensure the quality of the products. Testing is an integral part of these guidelines which makes it one of the core

DRIVERS in this market.

Products are being sourced and shipped worldwide to meet the global consumer demand. This has increased the need for durable packaging but at the same time, the push for more sustainable packaging is stronger than ever with emphasis on reducing the material used to ensure lighter cargo and decrease the ecological footprint. This has made package testing even more important as damaged or over-packaged products result in customer dissatisfaction and increased costs for retailers and manufacturers.

Plastic is the most widely used packaging material with more than half of the current market share followed by paper. Metal and glass are also widely used and tests are designed to check the packages durability, integrity, strength, shelf life and resistance to environmental factors. The integrity of a package is tested by performing various tests on it, drop, vibration and shock tests are the major ones which are mandated by the standards institutions like ASTM and ISTA. These standards are universally followed and are quite stringent in nature.

Packages now need to be more durable and even a trace of toxicity is completely unacceptable especially in food and pharmaceutical sector. Any violations are investigated by high-level organizations like the USFDA and stringent actions are taken ranging from fines to permanent banning of the product in the country.

The most important test in food and pharmaceuticals is the shelf life test because of the delicate nature of the products and their vulnerability on exposure to atmospheric conditions. With shifting emphasis on the use of ecologically friendly materials in packaging, this becomes a priority as their endurance to atmospheric conditions might not match that of their traditional counterparts.

Other tests include drop test, shock test, vibration test and compression test. The report provides a comprehensive analysis of the market segmented on the basis of packaging material used and the end-user industry. Detailed estimates for the next five years are included along with the analysis of the major players and their strategies.

Some of the major companies in package testing are DDL, Intertek, SGS, CSZ Testing Services Laboratories, CRYOPAK, Advance Packaging, Nefab, National Technical Systems, Turner Packaging and Caskadetek.
