Global E-Commerce Packaging Market: Growing Popularity of Smart Packaging

Currently, the concept of smart packaging is gaining traction in the e-commerce packaging industry. Smart packaging is embedded with sensor technology, which helps to monitor the freshness of the product, display information about quality, and thus, improve product and customer safety. Smart packages are currently being used for the packaging of various food products, pharmaceuticals, electronics, apparel, and many other types of products. For instance, In December 2018, LivingPackets, a European start-up, launched a revolutionary, sustainable, and trackable shipping box, which generates almost zero-packaging waste. The box helps in the real-time environmental monitoring of various aspects such as the location, temperature, and humidity. It also has an integrated camera that allows the remote viewing of the contents. Thus, such smart packaging solutions which aid in gaining customer trust through improved customer experiences, will drive the growth of the market during the forecast period.

“Apart from the growing popularity of smart packaging, the increase in demand for recyclable and sustainable packaging and the advent of fit-to-product and box-on-demand solutions are some other major factors that will drive market growth during the forecast period,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
