Follow us on LinkedIn – Packaging plays a vital role in the marketing mix, with its benefits ranging from protecting the product from damage to influencing customers’ purchase decision. In a competitive market environment, packaging also facilitates brand/product differentiation. Intelligent and efficient packaging provides ample opportunities for sales growth. Manufacturers are therefore continuing to invest in advanced packaging technologies such as blister and other high visibility packaging. Increasing use of packaging as a marketing tool, for displaying product related information, and for functional protection will therefore fuel demand for blister and other high visibility packaging solutions.
Food and beverages, pharmaceutical, and other industries are increasingly adopting newer and efficient packaging technologies. The pharmaceutical sector is expected to remain a major end-use market, particularly for blister packaging, driven by increasing drug manufacturing capacity. Demand in the food industry is also expected to witness significant gains supported by new applications in packaging fresh produce, prepared foods, snacks, baked goods, meats, dairy and other food products. With major end-use markets increasingly shifting towards sophisticated, integrated and standardized packaging to reduce packaging waste and to comply with environmental standards, blister packaging is poised to benefit.
The market is also witnessing significant R&D activity. Blister packaging manufacturers are integrating nanotechnology, digital printing, and cutting edge high barrier materials into their packaging solutions for smarter performance. A host of high-performance packaging technologies have been developed that integrate active and intelligent components and possess strong barrier properties, extended shelf-life and a descriptive label. Additionally, consumer preferences are shifting towards lightweight packages made from plastics, metal, glass, paper and board. Factors such as growing environmental awareness, rising adoption of sustainable packaging solutions, and stringent government regulations targeted at reducing impact of packaging waste are anticipated to fuel innovations in blister and other high visibility packaging.
