As cited in a Smithers Pira report, global demand for flexible packaging is projected to reach $248 billion by 2020. While flexible packaging benefits the end consumer, offering convenience and improved functionality, using this type of packaging has value throughout the manufacturing chain.
Take a look at how flexible packaging benefits converters and logistics chains in particular.
Fewer Resources Required
Flexible packaging requires less resources than other packaging formats. This, in turn, results in decreased material and energy costs during production.red
Reduced Transportation Costs
Flexible packaging also reduces transportation costs. In addition to being lightweight, it can be created directly at a filling location, which minimizes costs associated with shipping empty packages and further streamlines efficiencies.
Enhanced Production Processes
Flexible packaging formats also improve converter and logistics chains operational efficiencies. In particular, the stand-up pouch, the fastest growing package type, offers:
- Faster production
- Improved sealing techniques
- Increased versatility
Additionally, by enabling increased production logistics chains are better able to meet high output demands and tight delivery schedules effectively.
