IoT is the foundation for digitalization within the packaging sector. Peripheral technologies like 5G, artificial intelligence (AI), cloud, and edge computing support and enhance IoT. IoT collects the data, 5G transmits it, and AI extracts insight from it.
Packaging companies are using IoT to enhance the efficiency of their operations. Connected sensors allow assets to be monitored in real-time and, when combined with AI, can be used to predict faults before they occur. Packaging manufacturers are turning to the Industrial Internet to achieve their ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) targets. The Industrial Internet is helping companies to monitor a range of environmental parameters, like water and energy use.
Thanks to the declining price of sensors and tech vendors offering IoT as a service (IoTaaS), IoT deployment is becoming more accessible to packaging companies. Companies should resist flashy, gimmicky IoT features, and companies should define clear and targeted use-cases before implementing IoT devices across factories.
