The advanced exhibits together with a series of concurrent events will demonstrate the theme of “Innovation is Key to the Future”. The packaging industry is playing an increasingly critical role across various sectors. Brands are looking for crowd-pulling customised packaging. Whether packaging can serve as the driving force behind a brand and how it becomes an important means for enterprises to implement their business strategies are currently hot topics in the industry.
Compared to Europe, the US, Japan, and other countries, China is a late starter in the packaging industry, which, however, has grown to a fairly large-scale industry over the past few decades. And thanks to China’s 40 years of reform and opening-up, the income and living standard of people in the country have improved significantly. As a result, the market has a rising demand for technology that helps deal with small and customised orders in a precise, quick and flexible manner, and brands are going through substantial upgrades with unprecedented frequency. The importance of packaging to products is growing exponentially. PETplanet picked out some PET-relevant innovations:
