As we gaze into the future, we find an exciting landscape of packaging trends waiting to be explored. Combining innovation with sustainability, the world of packaging is set to break boundaries and create more interactive, intuitive, and environmentally-friendly experiences. In the world of eCommerce, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and more, packaging trends are becoming increasingly significant in shaping consumer behaviors, branding strategies, and ultimately the planet’s health. Here are some key trends that are predicted to shape the future of packaging and how Econocorp is leading the pack by embracing the packaging trends of tomorrow.

Sustainability Reigns Supreme

The sustainability wave that has swept across all industries continues to dominate packaging trends. More and more brands are committing to ‘green’ packaging, reducing plastic usage and adopting materials that are recyclable, compostable, or biodegradable. Innovations like mushroom-based packaging, algae, and even lab-grown materials are entering the market, pushing the boundaries of sustainable packaging. At Econocorp, we can customize our packaging machinery to meet the needs of these eco-conscious packagers, allowing for a wide range of packaging materials and erection methods. Contact us to work with our expert sales and engineering teams to design the perfect packaging equipment collection for your green goals.

Smart Packaging

Welcome to the era of packaging that communicates. Smart packaging technologies are expected to play a vital role in the future. These include QR codes, NFC (Near Field Communication), AR (Augmented Reality), and RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technologies that provide product information, usage instructions, and even immersive brand experiences. From tracking product freshness in food packaging to offering personalized, interactive experiences, smart packaging will provide a new level of engagement and convenience. Here at Econocorp, we’re researching best practices for integrating these smart features into our standard line of machinery, along with collaborating with customers to add these cutting-edge features to their existing equipment.

Personalization and Customization

In an era where customers crave unique experiences, personalization in packaging will become even more critical. Advances in digital printing technology allow for higher levels of customization in packaging design, allowing brands to create unique, personalized packaging that resonates with their target audience, increases brand loyalty, and promotes customer engagement. Econocorp offers advanced labeling and coding features that will complement your brand’s image while maintaining a clear and consistent packaging flow.

E-commerce Ready Packaging

The boom in online shopping has given rise to the need for e-commerce ready packaging. This means designing packaging that can withstand the rigors of the delivery process while reducing material usage. Furthermore, considerations such as ease of opening, reusability for returns, and the unboxing experience are becoming increasingly important in e-commerce packaging. Since we work with our customers to design packaging equipment that fits their specific product needs, we can accommodate requests for extra-tough, easy-to-use, and aesthetically appealing packaging materials.

Minimalistic Design

Simplicity is making a grand comeback. Consumers are increasingly drawn towards clean, minimalistic designs that not only look aesthetically pleasing, but also reduce waste and are easier to recycle. Expect to see more of ‘less is more’ in the future of packaging design. Econocorp’s equipment fits perfectly into this packaging trend, as we’ve always been advocates of achieving packaging needs with minimal material, interaction, and waste.

Health and Safety Focused Packaging

In the post-pandemic world, packaging that enhances safety and hygiene will continue to be in high demand. Antimicrobial packaging, touchless dispensing, and tamper-evidence features are some of the trends to watch in this sphere. We’ve worked with customers in the pharmaceutical, food, beverage, and cosmetics industries specifically to design packaging that meets the increasingly rigorous scrutiny of the modern customer.
