Primary Packaging Market: Overview
Primary packaging is the layer of packaging which is in immediate contact with the product or it is the first packaging layer in which the product is enclosed. Primary packaging has diverse range of applications and functions, depending on the type product, mode of transport and storage facilities. The most important function of primary packaging is to protect and preserve the product from external damage, contamination and spoiling. Primary packaging also serves the purpose of keeping the product in storage, often for a long period of time. In such cases of long duration storage, it is essential that the primary packaging keeps the product entirely sealed off from the environment.
Shelving and ease of handling is an additional aspect of primary packaging so as to make sure that the product can be easily handled by the consumers. The important types of primary packaging typically include clamshell packaging, blister packs, paperboard packaging, unit dose packs and shrink-wrapping. The rising demand for primary packaging application products from the industries such as food and beverages, pharmaceutical, personal care and household care is expected to drive the global primary packaging market in the next few years.
