Analysis of the hottest global flexible packaging

  • Detail

In recent years, the packaging industry has continued to develop, and the flexible packaging in packaging materials has gradually attracted the attention of brands because of its wide range of uses, low cost and innovative potential. It is predicted that the consumption of the global flexible packaging market will reach 71.3 billion yuan by 2016, so what are the development hotspots of the flexible packaging industry in 2014

with the continuous diversification of people's market demand, there are a variety of product packaging on the market. This has prepared the conditions for the development of the flexible packaging section. In addition, the lightweight packaging format of flexible packaging is an important attribute in the analysis of printing carbon footprint and the impact of packaging on the environment, and its characteristics are increasingly prominent. Therefore, in the future development of flexible packaging, environmental protection is still the biggest feature. Therefore, in the future development, flexible packaging will strengthen its environmental protection performance in all aspects

vigorously develop paper-based packaging and printing products

focus on developing high-end cartons and folding cartons with low gram weight, high strength and light weight, and develop in the direction of gift and color. First of all, paper products packaging based on folding cartons will have greater development space. Second, multilayer paperboard composites are more and more widely used. As users have higher and higher requirements for the quality and performance of paper products, the consumption of multilayer materials has a further increasing trend. For example, wine boxes and food boxes are mostly made of 2-3 layers of composite cardboard materials, and multi-layer materials (4-7 layers) based on paper will be more and more widely used in the field of paper packaging (such as beverage cartons) with high barrier requirements

vigorously develop paper plastic packaging

paper and plastic are the two most widely used materials in the packaging and printing industry, and will coexist for a long time. Plastic flexible packaging plays an increasingly important role in many fields, such as food, medicine (there are more than 6000 pharmaceutical enterprises in China, with annual sales of 120billion yuan), health products, dairy products, cosmetics, washing supplies and so on. At present, the development of plastic packaging products in the world presents the following characteristics: new polyester packaging has a better future; New degradable plastics are concerned; Attention has been paid to zero pollution of foamed plastics

the advantages of plastic flexible packaging are: light weight, soft, less waste, small space occupation, low cost and high cost effectiveness (volume and weight of packaging per unit weight), so it is more competitive than hard packaging. The development direction of plastic materials is to improve performance, reduce costs and be conducive to environmental protection. With the development of new varieties and brands of plastics and the improvement of processing technology and machinery, the performance of materials and packaging products has been improved, which can not only reduce material consumption and cost, but also meet people's requirements for the environment. 2. It has outstanding electrical insulation and excellent water resistance

according to the Research Report of the European Association of plastic manufacturers (APME), the average weight of plastic used for packaging has decreased by 28% in the past decade, with an annual reduction of more than 1.8 million tons, saving resources. Among them, plastic packaging film is the most effective, accounting for more than 70% of the savings. The annual consumption of European packaging materials is 66.4 million tons, of which plastic is 11.6 million tons, accounting for 17% and 50% of the packaged goods, Therefore, it can be said that plastic, especially plastic flexible packaging, is the most effective way to reduce the weight of packaging. The reduced weight is even greater than the amount of recycling and reuse (1.5 million tons per year), which plays the largest role in the rational utilization of resources. When talking about the importance of plastic flexible packaging in food packaging, the German magazine plastics pointed out that it has become a part of culture. In addition to its packaging function, it can also prevent damage by packaging, reduce the requirements for storage, provide information to consumers, serve customers more effectively, and make goods easy for family management, storage and transportation, This can be expressed by the following figures: 30% - 50% of food in developing countries is damaged in storage and transportation, while only 1% - 2% in Western European developed countries. The plastic flexible packaging market has become one of the fastest growing varieties in packaging due to its good comprehensive performance and performance price ratio

it can be seen that the average annual growth rate of plastic flexible packaging consumption was higher than that of other packaging methods in the past and in the future, which was not only faster than that of paper packaging, but also higher than that of plastic hard packaging. The data provided by the famous American business communication company (BCC) in the special report on the plastic flexible packaging industry in the public transformation is: the total consumption of the world plastic flexible packaging market only reached 6.31 million tons in 2001, and at present, the largest consumption is food packaging, which is 1.68 million tons

in a word, colorful plastic flexible packaging, with its excellent comprehensive performance, continues to replace other packaging, with increasingly expanded uses, reasonable prices and conducive to the environment, has become the fastest-growing product in the packaging industry, and is expected to maintain a good growth momentum in the next few years. In order to improve the market competitiveness, plastic flexible packaging will develop in the direction of thin-walled and high-performance, and the demand for multilayer composite films will grow faster than that of ordinary single-layer films. New plastic brand development and processing technology progress 2. Check the displacement sensor of universal testing machine to promote the progress of plastic flexible packaging technology. Polyethylene film and biaxially stretched polypropylene film have the most promising application prospects in packaging

the development of domestic plastic packaging focuses on the following aspects: high barrier packaging materials that improve protection performance and prolong shelf life, such as the development and application of high barrier coextrusion composite film; Development and application of sterile packaging materials, antibacterial packaging films and radiation resistant packaging films: suitable for electromagnetic cookers and microwave oven heating packaging materials; Controlled atmosphere packaging of packaging materials suitable for the storage of agricultural products such as grain; Composite film for electromagnetic shielding; Web paper and sheet fed gravure printing products will have great development according to market needs

pollution-free green packaging has been paid more and more attention by the society.

at present, China's packaging and printing enterprises are developing in a healthy and orderly direction

about 20%-30% of consumer goods in the U.S. market today are in the form of flexible packaging. The travel limit switch can automatically unload after the experiment and then play the role of limit stop. The factors that promote the continuous expansion of flexible packaging market share are the progressiveness of the blocking performance of sheet structure and the economic and high-quality flexo printing effect. Among them, flexible packaging has a huge market share in trademark printing, and it will stop automatically after the friction times reach the set value. In this market, metal and glass container packaging is constantly giving way to flexible packaging materials such as pet and other hard plastics. In the coming years, standing small bag packaging will be the most dynamic market in the flexible packaging industry

the printing industry in the United States has made flexographic printing the first choice for flexible packaging. The reason for choosing flexographic printing is that in small and medium-sized printing volume, the overall cost is less than intaglio printing. The main factors driving the development of flexible packaging are as follows: aluminum plastic composite film packaging for food, cosmetics and drugs has become a trend; The growth of disposable drug packaging; Consumers' demand for household convenience food is increasing. In order to attract potential consumers to buy the same kind of products, American businesses will adopt different packaging forms. For example, tuna and dried cereals have aluminum, folding cartons, flexographic packaging and other forms, so the printing volume is relatively small, making flexographic more acceptable than intaglio
