Market Measurement Study Helps an Industrial Packaging Client Forecast the Growth of the Industry

According to a recent market study, the global market for industrial packaging is predicted to reach $61 billion by 2020, growing at an annual rate of over 3%.

Typically, industrial packaging can be defined as the secondary or tertiary packaging used for packing products required for industrial purposes. Industrial packaging also involves the storage, protection, handling, and transportation of various industrial products within the industry or with other end-use sectors. Industrial packaging is available in multiple shapes and designs and is suitable for numerous applications in end-user industries, such as food and beverage, chemical, construction, and pharmaceuticals. Rise in construction and building activities in emerging economies like India and China, growth of the food and beverages industry to meet the demand of the growing population, and the rapid growth of exports, which requires superior packaging standards for the international market are some of the significant factors that are expected to boost the growth of the industrial packaging industry, globally.

However, the growth of the industrial packaging industry is hampered by certain factors, which include:

  • Assessing Sustainability: Today, packaging contributes towards the sustainability of a packaged product and should be planned holistically with that product to enhance overall environmental performance and minimize product wastage, damage, and spoilage. However, at present, there is no packaging solution that is entirely sustainable, and various packaging materials cannot be unambiguously classified as good or bad. All have their advantages and shortcomings depending on the product application, and tradeoffs are necessary to arrive at an optimum position.
  • Regulatory Trends and Pressures: Life cycle analysis is an essential process for estimation and comparison of the environmental impact of different products. It is now being recognized that this process should not be performed on the packaging alone but should also be a component of the calculation of the environmental impact of the entire packaged product versus other alternatives.

These factors are compelling firms across the industrial packaging industry to leverage the use of market measurement studies.
