Changing world of packaging:
Past, present and the future

Packaging industry has grown from just 'packaging' to an experience today. Today, consumption is happening on-the-go. Consumers, retailers and food producers are looking for fresher, more convenient packaging solutions that have minimum impact on the environment.


Packing Industry is one of the top 5 largest sectors of the Indian Economy. Cost of processing and packaging can be up to 40% lower in India than parts of Europe which, combined with the country’s resources of skilled labour, make it a preferred hub for packaging industry worldwide.

A high degree of potential exists for almost all user segments which are expanding mainly driven by factors like growing pharmaceutical, food processing, manufacturing industry, FMCG, healthcare sector and ancillary in the emerging economies like China, India, Brazil, Russia and few other East European countries.


Over the last few years, Packaging Industry in India has played a crucial role in driving technology and innovation growth in the country and adding value to the various manufacturing sectors including agriculture and FMCG segments. With advancement in technology and general awareness, the packaging sector in India is well poised as most of the raw materials for packaging are abundantly available in the country.

Moreover, the per capita spending has increased tremendously, leading to changing rural markets and a growing middle class who demand the best of products. Various upgraded technologies are being used in industry such as aseptic packaging, retort packaging and biodegradable packaging to enhance the life of products.


The plastic packaging market is expanding rapidly registering a growth of approximately 25 per cent per annum, While the paper packaging industry stands at more than 8 million M.T. In India, the fastest growing packaging segments are laminates and flexible packaging, especially PET and woven sacks.

The packaging industry is poised to grow rapidly led by the increasing use of innovative packaging equipments and the rising flexible packaging market. In terms of packaging, the food packaging industry is one growth area that has seen the maximum number of innovations in terms of packaging and branding.

Consumers want their food products to be hygienic, safe and at the same time to look attractive. When it comes to food packaging, MNCs have a very good ecosystem. They have a dedicated R&D house, which conducts various research-based experiments using the latest technologies, and are always innovating to ensure that the consumer is benefited.


This development has led to healthy competition between our local manufacturers to deliver innovative products, and as a result, the entire ecosystem is gearing up for the change. Likewise, local manufacturers are now importing state-of-the-art machinery to ensure that the packaging is of the highest standards.
