Five directions for future packaging development 1. Lightweight packaging: Lightweight is currently a common industrial term used to describe the practice of reducing packaging weight by using fewer materials to produce. The packaging field is increasingly favoring lightweight materials, and almost every type of plastic packaging emphasizes this in shape and structure. Reducing the weight and thickness of packaging materials is faced with many challenges. The lightweight packaging needs to maintain the performance and functions of the original packaging. This is a major test for the production technology of lightweight packaging materials. In the past few years, through a series of material innovation and technological progress, packaging lightweight has made great progress. 2. Functional film: In recent years, the plastic film market has been gaining momentum, showing a significantly higher growth trend than traditional packaging materials, such as paper packaging, cardboard, and aluminum foil. At the same time, while the packaging film is thinning, it is more functional, which has promoted the higher growth rate of this market. In such a rapidly developing market, more and more companies will invest in the upsurge of functional films in the future, which can accelerate technological innovation and promote the continuous emergence of new products. 3. Bioplastics: As we all know, oil is a scarce and non-renewable resource. The imbalance of oil reserves in various countries and the predatory exploitation of it by developed countries have become an important factor in the turbulence of the world situation. Therefore, the development of biodegradable materials and the reduction of petrochemical resource consumption have gradually become the consensus of all countries in the world, especially developed countries. In recent years, related technologies have developed rapidly, and more and more bioplastics have appeared in the packaging field. 4. In-mold labeling packaging: In-mold labeling technology has been introduced into my country's plastic packaging market more than 10 years ago, and has caused quite a stir in the industry. However, due to various factors, it has not been able to achieve breakthrough development in the country afterwards, and its market share is still very small. Fortunately, the domestic in-mold labeling packaging market, which has been covered by 'hard ice' for many years, has become active again in the past two years, setting off a small climax in the plastic packaging market. Especially in the field of fast-moving consumer goods packaging, under the pressure of rising labor costs, the number of fast-moving consumer goods companies investigating and adopting in-mold labeling packaging technology is no longer in the minority. 5. Convenience packaging: In the past, packaging has done enough homework in shelf display, protection, and convenient transportation, but there are still shortcomings in the convenience of packaging. Nowadays, with the improvement of living standards and the accelerating pace of society, consumers' requirements for packaging continue to increase, thereby promoting the innovation and development of packaging convenience. In the past, many plastic packages had to be opened with the help of teeth or scissors, but now most of these packages have a more convenient and quick way to open.
