The Hong Kong government is committed to promoting environmental protection and energy-efficiency


Hong Kong has an imminent waste problem. With more than 9,000 tonnes of municipal solid waste (MSW) disposed of at landfill sites each day, the city’s existing landfills might reach their maximum holding capacity by 2019. In light of this, the government has created a task force to address this issue and proactively push recycling initiatives for environmental protection and conservation amongst the public. Campaigns including the “Clink, Drink then Recycle” glass bottle recycling programme were held throughout main shopping malls and commercial buildings. Also, a recycling fund was set up for upgrading operational capabilities and efficiency in the recycling industry. Furthermore, the Plastic Shopping Bags Levy Scheme was fully implemented to cover all retail outlets with effect from 1 April 2015. All these measures encouraged people to recycle and led to the use of less packaging, or packaging which causes less environmental pollution and has less impact.

Rising health awareness is a key driver of packaging development


Rising awareness of health issues continues to affect packaging. Local consumers are strongly demanding healthier foods and beverages; one example is a shift in consumer preference away from carbonates to bottled water and other lower sugar beverages such as RTD tea, which are perceived as healthier and more functional. This resulted in higher demand for PET bottles. The decreasing number of smokers due to health concerns also affected the demand for tobacco packaging such as flexible aluminium/paper.

Consumers are keen on user-friendly and functional packaging


Due to increasingly busy lifestyles and limited living space, ease of use and space-saving are the prime concerns of Hong Kongers. Packaging with easy-open and easy-reclose, space-saving and convenient functions such as zip closures are preferred. This applies to all kinds of packaging, including for food, drinks and beauty and personal care products. Nowadays, consumers are not only concerned about design, but are also looking for hassle-free products and packaging which optimises their lifestyle.

Multinational corporations continue to lead packaging innovation


Product or packaging innovations are usually led by multinational corporations, which have teams dedicated to research and development. Multinational corporations are able to afford more product development to remain competitive in the market. They also have higher marketing budgets to maintain brand awareness with various advertisements and marketing campaigns, such as celebrity endorsement, to boost their product launches.

Packaging is forecast to register a steady performance


Packaging is expected to see stable growth over the forecast period. Hong Kongers are followers of trends, and seek innovation. Both foreign and local players are likely to explore new packaging solutions for consumers to fit their fast-moving lifestyles. Packaging with more functions is likely to grow faster. Eco-friendly packaging will also be a trend to enhance growth. Due to the maturity of most packaging types in Hong Kong, the overall growth in packaging is expected to be healthy, whilst drastic changes are not expected.
