A package or a packaging container that can alter its shape easily when filled with goods can be referred as flexible packaging. It is widely utilized for consumer as well as institutional products and in various industrial applications to package and distribute a varied range of products.

Aluminum, plastic, paper, and cellulosic packaging have been identified as the major products available in this market. In 2012, the plastic packaging segment dominated the overall market with a share of 70%.

The cost-efficiency and durability offered by plastics have been boosting demand for plastic flexible packaging across the world.
