The top three emerging market trends driving the global electronic goods packaging market according to Technavio transportation and logistics research analysts are:

  • Demand for innovative lightweigt materials
  • Premium packaging
  • Growing preference for sustainable packaging solutions

Demand for innovative lightweight materials

Supply chain efficiency in terms of reduced cost and effective storage are critical to the vendors in the market. Lightweight packaging offers both, thus gaining traction in the market. Vendors are providing high-performance, lightweight corrugated, and containerboard grades because of cost reduction, better performance, and environmental concerns. For instance, in 2014, MWV Rigesa (now WestRock) launched the HyPerform line of Kraftliner and fluting paper, which is more tamper-proof and has a lower basis weight. This product is eco-friendly, ensuring a reduction of 10% in greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and of 61% in water consumption.

Premium packaging

Packaging is used as a marketing ploy by many vendors in the market. This helps them to differentiate their product in the market, thus saving cost on marketing. The increasing demand for premium packaging, especially for premium consumer products offers a basic indication of the high-end quality of the product inside. Vendors use expensive inputs, technologies, colors, and raw materials to develop premium packaging. Many consumers also buy these products as gifts, thereby driving the demand for premium packaging in the market.

"Retail giants such as Walmart are using this form of packaging in the premium brand segment to improve marketing activities. These boxes are placed at the point of sale to attract consumers," says Sharan.

Growing preference for sustainable packaging solutions

Paper-based packaging is fully recyclable in most cases. Consumer product manufacturers prefer eco-friendly packaging materials as they promote sustainability. Paper can be recycled up to seven times, which gives corrugated manufacturers an advantage over other packaging products. Therefore, manufacturers are focusing on producing 100% recyclable corrugated boxes. For instance, in 2015, Mondi Containerboard launched the eco-friendly ProVantage Kraftliner Aqua and ProVantage Fluting Aqua paper that uses high-quality containerboard paper grades. These are water-resistant and eco-friendly.
