目錄

As of 2021, separate collection of flexible packaging waste remains a key challenge in many developed countries with greater use of recycled content is expected to 2026. This report focuses on reviewing and comparing specific strategies being adopted by the supply chain to improve the environmental profile of flexible packaging.

Public pressure and legislative action are creating impetus for change within the entire flexible packaging supply chain, and most notably the development of more sustainable package designs. The term "sustainable" is defined as packaging that is simply "better for the environment" versus alternatives. To avoid argument around such definitions, this report focuses on reviewing and comparing specific strategies being adopted by the flexible packaging supply chain to improve the environmental profile of flexible packaging. This provides the reader with a list of actionable approaches being considered by the whole flexible packaging value chain.

Our exclusive content:

  • Consideration for the development of more sustainable flexible packaging is the need to adjust strategies for different regions
  • Package material reductions have been used traditionally to justify the sustainability profile of flexible packaging. Flexible packaging is the lightest of any packaging format, providing unsurpassed performance vs. the amount of package material used
  • Technical limits for flexible packaging materials are close to being reached, with additional sustainability benefit for further reductions of existing flexible packs showing diminishing returns.

What will you discover?

  • The recyclable film options that exist today, can meet most needs for product protection, consumer interaction, pack manufacturing, aesthetics, shipment resistance and regulatory requirements, especially certain extremely high barrier requirements that may be challenging
  • The additional areas of development for flexible packaging which have focused on generally low performance applications including replacement of the PE wraps of fresh produce and bags for loose fruit and vegetables
  • How many brand owners are seeking to include post-consumer recycled content into their flexible packaging as of 2021, which supports the circular economy by establishing markets for recycled material and closes the circle of recycled material back into fresh packaging.

Who should buy the report?

  • Materials suppliers
  • Packaging converters
  • Brand owners and packaging buyers
  • Packaging and filling machinery manufacturers
  • Private and public sector, industry consultants, investors and analysts

The Smithers Methodology

This report is based on extensive primary and secondary research. Primary research consisted of interviews with targeted interviews with packaging material suppliers, converters and experts drawn from key markets. This was supported by secondary research in the form of extensive literature analysis of published data, official government statistics, domestic and international trade organisation data, company websites, industry reports, trade press articles, presentations, and attendance at trade events.
