With the rapid socio-economic development and the advent of the digital age, consumer demands for personalization, emotional appeal as well as demands for innovation and creativity have become new trends in the FMCG industry, requiring brand owners to pursue innovation and placing high demands on packaging and printing companies. To adapt to the changing and diversified market, companies also need to meet the individual needs of customers while offering competitive and innovative solutions. In this context, companies must shift their focus from packaging to products to enhance their core competencies.
Cost reduction and efficiency, packaging design, packaging structure, and light assets have become the goals pursued by FMCG companies. The FMCG packaging market continues to offer tremendous business opportunities for manufacturers of packaging materials and products. Product packaging will directly influence consumers’ desire to buy and is also one of the important ways to reflect brand attributes.
