Medical packaging: What’s trending?
The biggest trend we see in medical packaging is the continued move to more flexible packaging in both the primary and secondary sectors. Next-generation materials will enable brands and manufacturers to produce packaging that does its primary job of safeguarding the contents; while also being smaller, lighter and less brittle – all of which makes storage, transport and usage far more effective.
In primary packaging, recycling is not an option - which makes the use of eco-efficient raw materials that are easy and less wasteful to process, even more important.
Meanwhile in secondary packaging - where recycling is of course allowed - the ability to manufacture bags and pouches made from thinner films will make production far easier.
