"Packaging Preferences for Safety and Sustainability - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Consumer Survey Insights" identifies consumer reactions to packaging as lockdowns ease amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sustainable packaging has been popular with consumers for many years. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has boosted immediate desires for access to quickly produced convenient materials. Whilst sustainability remains a long-term objective, manufacturers and brands have increased the use of single-use packaging to assuage consumer concerns and aid convenience. Brands will need to devise longer-term compromises to packaging that meet demand for both sustainability and hygiene.

  • Panic buying and stockpiling has led to immediate demand for single-use packaging, as retailers focus on rapid stock replenishment.
  • Consumers in developing nations are most likely to regard secure and tamper-proof packaging as a top priority.
  • Compared to the global average, Indian consumers are more than twice as likely to make plastic-free packaging their top priority

Reasons to Buy
  • Understand the relevant consumer trends and attitudes that drive changes in packaging.
  • Gain a broader understanding of the fast-moving consumer goods industry by gaining insights from within and outside your sector.
  • Identify how countries have differing attitudes and concerns towards packaging.
