Demand for active and intelligent packaging is expected to outstrip total packaging demand growth, according to a new study from Freedonia Group. Active and intelligent packaging demand is forecast to expand 8% annually to US$3.5 billion in 2017 in the US alone, the research predicts. Active packaging provides functions such as moisture control, while intelligent packaging has features that show the product’s status or communicate product changes and other information.

According to the recent study "Active & Intelligent Packaging" from Freedonia, the demand for active and intelligent packaging in the US is forecast to expand 8% annually to 3.5 billion dollars in 2017, well above total packaging demand growth. Active packaging provides functions such as moisture control, while intelligent packaging incorporates features that indicate status or communicate product changes and other information. Some active and intelligent packaging products have a well established presence; however, a number of newer, more affordable types are emerging, especially in intelligent packaging. Food and beverages were the two largest markets for this packaging in 2012. Pharmaceuticals will be the fastest growing market through 2017, with opportunities driven by the health care needs of the aging US population, an increased prevalence of chronic diseases, and the expanding presence of high value, temperature-sensitive biotechnology drugs in the product mix.
