What are the key trends to know for pouch packaging?

Several factors are shaping trends in the US packaging industry, particularly for packaging of consumer goods. Consumers have generally been willing to pay for convenience features, both in products and their packaging. Increasingly, consumers are aware of the environmental impact of packaging products, and many consider that impact in their purchase decision-making. Similarly, food processors and other consumer goods producers have sought to improve their products’ marketability and to reduce packaging, shipping, and other costs through optimal use of packaging materials.

Because of the necessity of packaging, packaging types that stand to see the most impressive growth will be the ones that maximize the benefits of packaging while minimizing its detriments.

Other key factors to know be aware of are packaging sustainability and packaging convenience. This includes bio-based plastics being used, handles for heavy products, and resealability of pouch products.
