Elements such as acceleration in the overall production, high disposable income, changing lifestyles in emerging countries including China and India (IN), growing Internet penetration, and Internet shopping have increased the need for using packaged products. This in turn stimulated the industry demand for protective packaging as it is required to prevent damages to products during handling, storing, and transporting through the supply chain.

There are certain factors prevailing in the sector that hinder its development, including stringent rules & regulations in the protective packaging and the increasing environmental concerns.
