Global Executives Survey: The Future of New Packaging Materials

GlobalData’s "Global Executives Survey: The Future of New Packaging Materials", examines the role of current use of packaging materials in the global packaging industry. Furthermore, the report identifies the opportunities that are emerging for new packaging materials and whether manufacturers are willing to pay additional costs for new materials.

Executives identify that biodegradable materials will have the highest opportunities for new packaging materials as a result of their primary benefit of environmental friendliness. The packaging material’s development over the next five years will involve environment friendly materials that have enhanced shelf life and innovative techniques such as embossing and foiling, ease of recycling, and convenience.

Furthermore, lowering costs and moving towards sustainability are the most important challenges when using materials such as flexibles, rigid plastics, and rigid metals. The report also highlights the benefits of new packaging materials, the additional costs manufacturers are willing to pay for the new packaging materials, and the sector projected to witness the most innovative new uses of materials in the next five years.
