Packaging Insights: Adapting Packaging to E-Commerce - The impact of e-commerce growth on packaging principles

Summary
The e-commerce channel has been one of the largest disruptions to the traditional packaging industry.During 2012-16, the number of pack units sold through the global e-commerce channel has increased for most categories in all regions.

In CAGR terms, potato chips (9.8%), processed snacks, (7.6%) and facial care (5.9%) have all recorded significant increases in movement through the e-commerce channel.

Globally, potato chips and processed snacks growth had the largest impact on e-commerce unit growth.This is likely because of two things - the uptake of grocery shopping online and the expansion of snacking as working hours increase stress and reduce full meal times.

Potato chips packaging showed the greatest increase in Asia as well, where pack units grew at a CAGR of 20.3% in the same period.

As e-commerce use continues to expand in Africa, everyday essentials such as toothpaste have seen the fastest growth and the largest change in total units since 2012, while staple foods and snacks have also seen an increase in interest. Asia too has followed the trend for time-saving foodstuffs and Facial Care products, as has Australasia.
