Packaging is the science, art, and technology of enclosing or protecting products for distribution, storage, sale, and use. The demand for more environmentally friendly packaging is set to rise significantly in the near future, especially paper packaging, which given that it’s recyclable, biodegradable, and renewable, is the ideal alternative to plastic.
New solutions are being developed to prevent the excessive use of packaging materials (that at present are an unnecessary cause of waste). This will include options such as high-performance corrugated products, which use 30% to 40% less paper but are still 100% recyclable and sustainable.
As online retail sales continue to climb, the number of packages likely to be shipped in the future will no doubt increase dramatically. The growing demand for ‘box-on demand’ systems and other automation systems will save the number of full-time employees needed.
