Why Flexible Packaging? Here Are Several Reasons
Rigid packaging has been being replaced by flexible packaging for many years. In fact, studies predict the industry to reach $282.6 billion by 2022. If you are still on the fence about trying flexible packages or pouches for your liquid or semi-liquid product, consider these reasons:
While health and wellness have been a growing concern for several years, the pandemic is forcing those issues to the forefront. This focus will increase the demand for medical, dental, and cleaning supplies; dietary supplements; pharmaceuticals; as well as natural, organic, and additive-free products – which are perfect for flexible packaging.
Consumers’ hectic lifestyles are leading them to opt for products that offer a higher level of convenience in packaging. This demand is creating the need for more packaging engineered for portability, less weight, and resealability – all hallmarks of flexible packages.
From crystal clear canals in Venice to a smog-free Los Angeles, the positive impact on the environment because of the multiple worldwide COVID-19 virus shutdowns has heightened awareness of environmental issues. Flexible packaging meets those demands by being lightweight, in some cases recyclable, and at times using recycled material in production.
Stand-up pouches are rapidly growing as a product category. This type of flexible packaging, vertical form-fill systems or VFFS, offer reduced production times, more versatility, and better sealing designs.
The demands of the post COVID-19 world are uncertain. However, the benefits of flexible. packaging will meet many of them through improved safety, convenience, and lower environmental impact.
