Today, people are paying more and more attention to food safety and physical health. Talking about “plastic” color change has become a phenomenon that has gradually emerged in the packaging industry. In fact, as the backbone of the packaging industry, plastic materials have been loved and reused by various companies since its inception, and the future development of this market is also very broad. However, based on the inevitable trend of the increasingly mature green environmental protection concept, green packaging should become the main development direction of plastic packaging in the future.
As we all know, plastic packaging has gained a lot of market share with outstanding advantages. At present, in addition to being widely used in food packaging, plastic packaging has been further developed in the fields of industrial packaging, pharmaceutical packaging, building materials packaging, cosmetics packaging, etc., and its use scope and prospects are increasingly broad. Relevant forecasts show that the global flexible packaging market will continue to grow within a certain period of time in the next period. However, with the continuous improvement of people's environmental awareness, plastics have become more and more a packaging material for many product packaging, especially food packaging, which requires the food practitioners to pay sufficient attention.
According to the latest report released by a well-known British research and research company, "Global Soft Packaging Market Outlook", the global flexible packaging market will continue to grow at a rate of 3.5% in the next five years. It is estimated that the output value will reach 231 billion US dollars by 2018. . The development of the flexible packaging industry has far exceeded the traditional hard-box packaging market.
Plastic food packaging plays an increasingly important role in ensuring food safety. As a mainstream variety of food packaging, people naturally put forward higher requirements for packaging products.
At the same time, the variety of product packaging on the market is now ready for the development of the flexible packaging sector. Of course, in the future development of flexible packaging, environmental protection is still its greatest advantage. As consumer demand continues to diversify, soft packaging is increasingly highlighting the importance of lightweight packaging attributes in terms of print carbon footprint analysis and environmental impact of packaging.
Industry insiders pointed out that as environmental problems become more and more serious, green, low-carbon, environmentally-friendly plastic packaging is receiving more and more attention and respect. The mainstream trend of packaging materials development in the future will be multi-functional, lightweight, environmentally friendly and intelligent.
