With a huge and varied range of products on the retail shelf, it can be difficult for brand owners to offer something unique to consumers. Packaging is a key element that can provide differentiation and important added-value benefits. By using packaging to improve convenience and functionality it is possible to adapt to the changing lifestyles of consumers. Packaging can also be used to help create a premium image to appeal to aspirational consumers. In response to consumer demand for greater sustainability in packaging, we are seeing more easily recyclable formats and alternative materials are starting to emerge. We have used the publisher's Pack-Track packaging innovation tool to identify new packaging developments within the categories, and this report discusses special features and benefits of examples we like, and how they fit in with current consumer trends within the publisher's TrendSights framework.
