About the e-Commerce Packaging Market

Other materials such as polybags, wood, and metal cases are gaining popularity in the forecast period, owing to the increased demand for premium packaging.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A trend which is boosting market growth is the increased demand for premium packaging. Premium packaging is the basic indication of the high quality of the product inside; hence, consumers look for products with premium packs. Vendors use expensive ingredients, technologies, colors, and other raw materials to develop premium packs. Many consumers also buy these products as gifts, thereby driving the demand for premium packaging in the market.”

According to the report, a key growth driver is the increased use of e-commerce. The growing e-commerce market, which primarily includes online shopping, has witnessed an increase in demand for corrugated boxes for shipment of the products sold through them. The ease of online shopping has made many customers switch from the traditional method of shopping. Online retailers use different types of corrugated boxes packaging according to the product transported. These boxes ensure the safety of the products transported in them. In addition, effective packaging is becoming one of the key business requirements in the e-commerce marketplace, thus fueling the growth of the market.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could derail market growth is product damage. Packaging plays an essential role in establishing the brand name of the retailer. Retailers are trying their best to provide better and innovative packaging solution to the consumer, but once the product leaves the retailers' facility, it’s the responsibility of the logistic company to deliver the products in the desired form.
