The financial development in numerous emerging nations has significantly influenced the progress of quite a lot of sectors, the packaging industry being one of them. The swell in transport undertakings outfitting to a substantial number of industries such as manufacturing, consumer goods, food and beverages, and others rest essentially on sturdy and resilient packaging solutions for extreme safeguard for the products and curtail damage while conveyance. The global packaging market stood at $812 billion in 2014, swelling by 2.8% over 2013. Sales are projected to increase by 3.5% annually by 2020, with sales to reach $997 billion by 2020.
The category of packaging also is determined by the nature of the product. Tough merchandises such as steel auto parts have varied necessities that requisite them to be sheltered from water, corrosion, oxygen, etc. Delicate merchandises such as glassware and ceramics, instead, require multidimensional wrapping to safeguard them from wear and tear. Long distance shipping of merchandises shoots the call for rigid packaging solutions in a quite a number of applications.
Innovative packaging solutions are compulsory for the trade, storage, and distribution of numerous products. Nevertheless, constructing a brand personality and escalating the shelf life of innumerable unpreserved products is also a vital characteristic of packaging. In a latest foremost improvement, Brazil centred agribusiness Agrindus was effective in outspreading the shelf life of fresh milk by evolving an inventive and severe packaging. Milk was packaged in rigid plastic bottles with silver based nanoparticles.
These nanoparticles retain quite a lot of antimicrobial, bactericidal, and self-sterilizing characteristics. This inimitable packaging upholds the first-rate quality of pasteurization of whole milk for 15 days. This is an increase in its previous shelf life of seven days. Being inactive in nature, these silica layered silver based nanoparticles do not create a hazard of coming apart from the packaging and thereby coming in connection with the fresh food, in this instance, the milk. So any harmfulness apprehensions that buyers and food supervisors may have are considered with this ground-breaking packaging.
