Top 5 packaging industry trends


  1. Retail Ready Packaging

Retail Ready Packaging is one of the fastest growing trends in all of packaging with the surge of stand-up pouches, retail ready trays and retail ready RPC’s. This type of packaging has been adopted by all types of industries such as confectionary, processed food, produce and even protein products have begun using RRP.

When making a machinery decision, it is critical to use a premium tray former or case erector to ensure the money spent on your high quality graphic trays and cases are undamaged prior to reach store shelves

  1. Light Weighting

Light weighting has been going on for quite a few years now as manufacturers try to decrease the weight and thickness of corrugated to decrease transportation costs and try to pack more into each truck. Another method of light weighting and using less corrugated is the increase use of shied flaps and/or gap flaps.

When looking for machines, you will once again need machines which handle corrugated more precisely and accurately to avoid damaging these lighter gauge cases.

  1. Labeling and coding

With new legislation on labelling and identification being imposed in the last few years, lots of companies have been scrambling to update or acquire new labelling equipment. Make sure you are aware of the labelling requirements for your product/industry prior to getting your equipment.

If you want to save some money and floor space, you should consider getting a case sealer which can support a printer mount to save you on extra conveyors.

  1. Sustainability

Sustainability has become increasingly important in the past few years as manufacturers realize that increased sustainability often results in increased cost savings. As most sustainable solutions involve lighter materials such as recycled cases or PET bottles, you will see significant savings in transportation costs.

Newer machines have also been optimized to be more effective while using less power or air and also equipped with more environmentally friendly features such as power-save modes (featured on the BEL 5252u).

  1. E-commerce

E-commerce is everywhere from electronics, to clothing, to toys, to groceries and produce. When considering options for packaging, make sure to keep this in mind as not all types of cases or trays are suitable for e-commerce.
