PACKAGING MATERIALS OFFER VARIOUS PROPERTIES
Urbanization, a rise in small households and a growing middle-class population, have changed the purchasing behavior of consumers who have more demands than ever for packaged products. As a result, the global packaging market was valued at USD 851.1 billion in 2017 and will grow steadily at 2.9% to reach USD 980 billion in 2022.
Manufacturers must be sure that appropriate materials are used in their packaging design and production. Certain materials are appropriate for different products and applications based on their properties and include flexible plastic, rigid plastic, paper, glass and metal. Selecting the right materials and design are key for achieving effective and functional packaging.
With so many new technologies in the market, there have never been more options for achieving success. Be sure to attend MaterialsAsia Zone in ProPak Asia to see how much difference packaging can make, and to take advantage of exciting new advancements.
