Summary
With new legislations and regulations expected to create an impact on business operations amidst growing environmental concerns, organizations are focusing efforts on restricting potential increases in the cost of machinery, and complying with legislative changes. As online retail and sales of unpacked goods will disrupt business operations, packaging features such as recyclability, light weighting, and premium look will be favored. By 2021, research and development is expected to benefit from increased investment by packaging organizations with demand increasing for flexible plastic packaging, pouches, and premium paper or board packaging.

Key Findings
- Half of packaging industry executives expect a moderate impact of new legislations and regulations on business during the next five years

- Of respondents who operate in Europe, 42% expect growing environmental awareness to cause the biggest disruption

- Being recyclable and achieving a premium look will be the most important pack features in 2021

- Demand for pouches and flexible packaging will increase the most to 2021

- Research and development budgets will benefit from the most investment, but data analytics is not a priority for packaging companies

- Only 37% of packaging companies will employ a data analytics officer in the next five years
