The Internet of Things (IoT) describes the use of connected sensors and actuators to control and monitor the environment, the things that move within it, and the people that act within it.

Cloud-based solutions in the packaging industry reduce cost, streamline the business IT infrastructure, improve flexibility, help in scaling up operations and provide data security. Cloud computing is also revolutionising the packaging label and print industry across the supply chain ranging from the designing of artwork to the delivery of the final product.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is undoubtedly one of the most prominent technology themes in the packaging industry.

Cybersecurity is the body of technologies, processes, and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programmes, and electronic data from attack, damage, or unauthorised access.

Sustainability in packaging has been gaining prominence as concerns are growing over packaging waste. Sustainable packaging solutions are free from toxic materials and are a safe and healthy alternative to materials such as plastics. Good quality eco-friendly packaging can also help in reducing storage space and transportation costs.

Shrink wrapping or shrink wrap packaging is a flexible and versatile packaging solution used to protect, seal, and preserve products during transit and storage. It is one of the primary packaging solutions used in several industries, including pharmaceuticals, fast moving consumer goods, food, cosmetics, and electronic products.

Cartons are the most versatile and visible elements of packaging, offering a great alternative to plastic packaging. Folding cartons are essential in the presentation, safe handling and logistics of a variety of products, including fast-moving consumer goods.

Packaging design helps in creating first impressions with consumers. It also enables a product to stand out on a retail shelf and serves as a motivational trigger.

Packaging containers are used in multiple industries, including food and beverage, fast moving consumer goods (FMCG), pharmaceutical, cosmetics and retail. Containers can attract consumers, safeguard the product, enable display on retail shelves and minimise packaging waste.

Converting machines and equipment forms the foundation for producing a variety of packaging products from raw materials such as polymer pellets, papers, films, and other substrates.

Packaging printing plays an important role in distinguishing products and enhancing their visual appeal. Creative labelling can further improve the overall and finished look of a package. Choosing the correct printing and labelling solution is, therefore, essential to creating effective customised and personalised packaging.

Packaging has come a long way from merely containing and protecting consumer and industrial products, to playing an increasingly important role in different areas of business, including supply chain and brand management.

An effective packaging solution must not just protect the products and preserve quality but also make logistics safe, easy and cost-effective, as well as be appealing to the buyers.

Packaging closures and dispensing systems are used by a range of sectors, including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, healthcare, personal care, food and fast-moving consumers products.

Packaging inspection and detection are essential steps for the prevention of contamination or damage, as well as to preserve brand loyalty. Damaged or poor packaging can impact the brand image, quality and safety of a product or even lead to costly product recalls.
