Challenge for Flexible Packaging Market:

  • In the flexible plastic packaging sector, which offers reusability and reduces waste, recycling poses a significant challenge.

Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Flexible packaging market:

  • Many individuals turned to buy food online during and after the lockdown, and this tendency will undoubtedly continue. Packaging solutions are in high demand, with e-commerce today being one of the most extensively used channels globally. The demand for e-commerce packaging solutions including corrugated boxes, flexible packaging wraps, and others is being fueled by more physical shops moving to online sales channels. Many nations' economies have suffered as a result of the suspension of numerous industries, particularly transportation and supply chains.

  • Due to the lockout, there has been no development, which has hampered demand for the product. Resources being scarce in various parts of the world has had a severe influence on the manufacturing and industrial sectors as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. The leading companies in the sector are re-evaluating their strategy to tackle the challenge since they are worried about the market's prospects.

  • The businesses are using a variety of methods to boost production volume while also working to create cost-effective, innovative solutions that can satisfy customer needs and support the overall innovation needed for higher flexible packaging penetration sustainability.

  • The Covid-19 epidemic had a mixed effect on the packaging business, with some end-markets—like food and healthcare—experiencing a spike in demand. Long-term, sustainable packaging is expected to continue to be the main priority of packaging companies, although right now, plastics are the main focus. Since these categories are currently regarded as essentials and consumers are stocking up on these items, packaging manufacturers are observing increased demand from sectors such as food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, and other essential commodities such as hand sanitizers, soaps, and disinfectants during and after the Covid-19 pandemic.
