Market trends

 

  • According to the European Union plastics strategy, all plastic packaging should be recyclable or reusable by 2030. Even before then, the increasingly demanding recycling targets at a European level (from the current 22.5% to 50% by 2025) and more efficient Extended Producer Responsibility schemes across Europe create requirements and pressure to increase the recyclability of packaging.
  • When it comes to packaging and visual trends, we are living in a time of matt colours and earth tones. This trend is originating from the increasing environmental awareness and, thus, the need to communicate sustainable values. Today, new applications and finishes, such as natural feeling, matt and rough surfaces are combined with attractive and high-quality printing.

 

 

  • The Finnish Packaging Association ran a packaging survey in 2018 which stated that 35% of the people thought that convenient packaging raised their attention at the store shelves. Everyone enjoys packaging that is easy to use or even has some additional features, like reclosability to make your everyday life a little easier. For some people, packaging that is easy to open and use is a necessity. According to the UN, globally the number of older persons — those aged 60 years or over — is expected to more than double by 2050.
