  • 10. Understanding the Packaging Industry Value Chain and Role of the key Stakeholders Packaging companies (known in the materials industry as “converters”) are engaged in the conversion of commodity raw materials such as polymer, board or paper into value-added consumer or industrial packaging. This puts them in a potentially vulnerable position in the value chain illustrated below. PACKAGING INDUSTRY VALUE CHAIN • Key feedstock suppliers are typically large global producers that have the power to pass on higher commodity costs and increase prices to their customers when supply is tight, which in turn increases input prices for the packaging produce • Major raw materials usually comprise more than half of the total cost base of a packaging manufacturer • There are large and powerful consumer goods companies that may not wish to pass price increases to end consumers and use the threat of switching to keep suppliers in line • A good packaging management team will try to ensure that customer contracts have a raw material inflation pass-through mechanism © Copyright 2014 WEBENZA INDIA PVT. LTD. The information contained herein is subject to change without notice.
  • 11. Industry Developments Over the Years LATEST DEVELOPMENTS In the developed world, overall demand for consumer goods has been relatively static. However, demographic changes (e.g., decline of the nuclear family, increase in average age) and increased market share competition between established FMCG producers has driven innovation on the packaging side. Some of the Top new developments include: 1 Convenience features such as re-sealable packs, easy-opening and stand-up pouches. 2 Smaller pack sizes for single-serving and on-the-go use. 3 More promotional packs and brand extensions to maintain customer loyalty. 4 More eye-catching and colourful designs to enhance brand awareness and to stand out on the shelf. 5 The development of the mass luxury or “masstige” category of cosmetics and other consumer goods. Packaging companies have to have well-developed and collaborative relationships with their customers, who are closer to the end consumer. Packaging companies that don’t invest in the right technologies and capabilities are at a competitive disadvantage and threats. © Copyright 2014 WEBENZA INDIA PVT. LTD.

  • 13. Trend: Across Different Packaging Types According to a Global Industry Analysts (GIA) report on the worldwide paper packaging industry in 2012, that highlights some major trends across packaging types, “Paper Packaging” would remain the most preferred packaging type with improved products and technologies. Packaging Types PAPER PACKAGING • This an extensively used packaging format, that rose demand from end-users. Through continuous innovations in technology and production techniques, this is also going to be used as a potential alternative for metal, steel, plastic, glass and wood packaging • The paper packaging industry is likely to see tremendous growth with the development of new products and technologies and also with the availability of an enhanced range of paper packaging products CORRUGATED BOARD PACKAGING • This particular sector witnessed high demand from developing countries such as Poland, Russia, India, China and Brazil • The demand is due to widening industrial activity and steady economic growth • Also, development of improved small flutes and high quality graphic board is expected to promote access of corrugated boxes in the traditional folding cartons market • • • • PAPERBORAD BOXES Consumer goods companies are the largest users of folding paperboard boxes across the globe The demand for these boxes started to decline in the second half of 2008 However, the folding cartons had continued a favorable growth, due to a major increase in demand from the Asia Pacific countries In the non-durables sector, beverages and food signify the fastest growing division for folding paperboard boxes © Copyright 2014 WEBENZA INDIA PVT.

  • 14. Trend: “Regulations” Will Have A Greater Influence on Packaging Design According to a study done by Packaging World and DuPont, “Regulations” will have a greater influence on packaging design in the next ten years.

  • 16. Trend: Demand for Sustainable Packaging The demand and growth on sustainable packaging is continued and is more likely to increase as it is being driven by the government, regulations and by the demands of retail customers.
