A global, landmark study on the key opportunities and challenges
Join Kaspar Roos to find out more about the flow of information that drives and supports the design, converting, delivery, and use of packaging worldwide, and its future.
Manufacturers of consumer products and the companies that create packaging for them face many challenges today, often ones digital production methods help address. Manufacturers need to customize products to target many markets, and to put new versions on retail shelves quickly. Converters need to print short runs of packaging for brand owners efficiently and cost effectively. For all the companies involved, these basic challenges lead to a host of others in communications, job management, printing, and fulfillment.
Many aspects of packaging workflows are already deeply reliant on digital technology, and most others are now becoming so. InfoTrends’ new report is about this digitization of packaging workflows, and its future.
Through this research, InfoTrends intends to:
InfoTrends will use a mix of research methods to achieve the objectives of this study. These will include desk research, structured surveys of converters and brand owners, designers, and personal interviews with converters, brand owners, and suppliers of software tools for digital packaging workflows.
Converters surveyed will include four types, each accounting for about 25% of responses: flexible packaging, folding cartons, corrugated, labels.
Interviews with converters, brand owners, and design agencies will be individually summarized in the report. Interviews with hardware vendors and software providers, which will mainly support market sizing and related topics, will not be individually summarized.
InfoTrends’ senior staff will examine a wide range of existing market information about packaging workflows, software suppliers, the packaging industry and the addressable markets for workflow tools within it. Information sources will include financial reports, supplier websites and conference presentations, trade journals, and reports by industry trade associations and government agencies. InfoTrends will also leverage research it has previously published as part of its ongoing consulting services.
InfoTrends’ senior staff will perform an extensive analysis of the research and develop a detailed report about it, and the future that it predicts for digital packaging workflows.
