India's flexible packaging forms occupy the market

the total packaging volume of consumer packaging in India reached 36906 million units in 2002. India's packaging industry is still developing, and flexible packaging forms occupy the market. Changes in consumption habits have stimulated the development of packaging materials

as more and more women participate in work and middle-income families improve their income ladder, it has also brought about some changes in consumption patterns. Women spend less and less time in the kitchen, and they are unwilling to spend a lot of time elaborately preparing big meals every day. This has led to the vigorous development of the convenience food market, including food and non food categories. The market of semi-finished microwave food and portable packaging materials is expanding

the increasing health awareness is conducive to the packaging industry

Indians' health awareness is gradually enhanced, and they are more inclined to packaged brand products than unpackaged things. Even ordinary people care about the quality of water, the standard of cooking oil and calorie intake. The demand for PET bottles in the bottled water market is growing. Similarly, people are obviously far away from the non-standard and non branded inferior edible oil, which greatly increases the demand for pet and HDPE bottles. More and more consumers are also aware of the importance of nutritional drinks. Compared with carbonated and concentrated drinks, they prefer fruit juice drinks, 100% pure fruit juice and milk drinks, thus promoting the demand for liquid boxed drinks

India's economic development prospects are promising

India's economic growth rate is on the rise, and the output of agriculture, industry and the tertiary industry has surged, making the degree of prosperity higher and higher. Salaries of a large number of middle-income groups in India have increased steadily

overall economic growth is conducive to the consumer goods market, enabling more people to have the ability to consume more products. Some products that were considered luxury goods a few years ago have now become daily consumer goods for most families, including 100% pure fruit juice and high-temperature treated milk

Indian food habits have changed

as people become richer and spend less time in the kitchen, people have more and more opportunities to eat out of home. As a result, Italian and Chinese restaurants and pizza and hamburger retail stores have flourished throughout the country and even in small cities. Indians began to try new cooking methods and buy similar food to take home. Therefore, during the review period, new products such as pasta, soup and noodles rose in India, with high reliability and are expected to become more and more popular in the next few years

the dominant position of flexible packaging stems from the low cost

flexible packaging was once the most commonly used packaging in India, accounting for 57% of the total packaging demand in 2002 in terms of volume. Flexible packaging occupies the food packaging and is used for all kinds of food, including milk, biscuits, vegetable oil and rice. Fresh milk/pasteurized milk is one of the main end use products in flexible packaging, accounting for nearly 30% of the total unit volume in 2002. Bread baking products are another kind of parts that mainly use soft packaging, mainly using soft paper

in India, it is the cost that mainly affects the type of packaging, so the lower price plastic bags enable manufacturers to maintain a lower retail price of their products

glass bottles are the main choice for the packaging of alcohol products

people believe that glass packaging has improved the status and value of products. Consumers regard glass as a high-quality insurance material. This is especially true in areas such as alcoholic beverages and perfume. On the whole, alcohol packaging uses more glass bottles. In the food market, glass bottles are the most suitable and hygienic for products containing reactants, such as ketchup, vanilla, spices, etc. In addition, the sealed packaging of glass can keep fresh, and it is most suitable to maintain the original flavor because of its high chemical stability

glass bottles withdraw from some markets

glass is the second most commonly used packaging type in the whole packaging industry, but glass containers are gradually losing their market. The reason lies in the fragility rate and the inconvenience of recycling empty bottles after use. Therefore, the growth of glass containers during the review period was the least, only nearly 9%. Glass packaging has been gradually withdrawn from the fresh milk market and replaced by soft plastic bags. Liquid boxed milk is becoming more and more popular in milk drinks with essence and long shelf life/high temperature milk. PET bottles have entered the soft drink and alcoholic beverage market

pet bottles are becoming increasingly popular

pet bottles are very popular among consumers and manufacturers in India. Consumers choose PET bottles because they are thinner, lighter, more portable and not easy to break

manufacturers show a preference for PET bottles because the adaptability of this material enables it to be designed into various attractive shapes. Therefore, PET bottles have entered the market traditionally occupied by glass bottles, such as carbonated beverages. Even in the alcoholic beverage market, PET bottles are mainly used for whisky packaging due to their convenience and cost advantages

the introduction of PET bottles has expanded the carbonated beverage market

the use of PET bottles for carbonated beverages makes it easier to take home, which increases the demand for carbonated beverages. With the growth of household consumption, the demand for 1-liter and 1.5-liter PET bottles is growing rapidly

HDPE bottles sell well in non food products

cosmetics and toiletries. The main demand for HDPE containers in the market is hair care and skin care products. For example, the emergence of value-added products without oil and containing herbal ingredients has stimulated the growth of hair care products

in the past few years, the market has been full of herbal products, which has stimulated the growth of cosmetics, thus benefiting the hard plastic market. Vitamins and dietary supplements have also expanded the demand for hard plastic containers, mainly due to the increased demand for herbal formulas such as chyawanprash. Four top tier businesses Dabur, baidyanath, zandu and Himani have launched strong advertising and promotional activities. The high popularity of chyawanprash and its demand undoubtedly increase the demand for plastic HDPE bottles in the OTC health care market. The main demand for HDPE bottles in household comes from stain remover. There is fierce competition among top brands. They are ujala supreme whitening wash of jyothilaboratories Ltd, the year-round production and R & D of the technical department of Jinan new era assaying Instrument Co., Ltd., Robin sunglowandcuffs collar of Reckitt benckise and the revival of Marico industries. Competition leads to price wars and promotions, leading to regional expansion of products and growth of HDPE bottle demand

health awareness drives the demand for liquid boxes

Indians of all ages pay more and more attention to health and calories, and prefer healthy drinks such as fruit juice/vegetable juice that do not contain preservatives, pigments and essence. Moreover, these products are listed in the form of liquid boxes, deliberately making the image of fruit juice drinks different from carbonated drinks

liquid boxed is popular because it can prolong shelf life, maintain the original flavor and flavor, and make fruit juice unnecessary to be refrigerated. Liquid cartons can also enable long-distance transportation of perishable products, so that consumers can enjoy seasonal fruits all year round. Therefore, the growth rate of liquid cartons during the review period was significant and is expected to continue to grow in the next few years

spray Canning is the most active solution: the metal packaging type that regularly protects the zigzag experimental machine

from 1998 to 2002. In addition, spray Canning is the fastest growing of all metal packaging types. Spray cans occupy the main shelves of stores, especially pesticides. With the sharp price reduction of manufacturers and large-scale promotion and advertising, the demand for spray pesticides has increased. The large-scale multimedia public welfare activities launched by the Indian Association of household insecticide manufacturers further promoted this growth

limited consumption of canned food

Indians oppose the consumption of canned food because they prefer to eat cheap fresh food bought from the market. Fresh fish products, poultry, fruits and vegetables that can be bought everywhere do not leave much space for packaging. Therefore, the use of canned metal food in India is limited

the rural market promotes the demand for small bags

India pays more and more attention to the rural market, for which manufacturers introduce low-cost goods in small packages. Therefore, the investment in the rural market has promoted the demand for small bags in many consumer commodity markets. These small bags have proved extremely popular in small towns and villages, where families are unable to afford large packages of products due to economic constraints

some non food products that use small bags on a large scale include shampoo, cleansing powder, hair oil, toothpaste, tooth powder, hair dye and skin care cream. Small bag packaging helps the low-income class upgrade from using inferior products without packaging to using packaged brand products. The introduction of small bags in the beverage market has expanded the market of concentrated powder. Morepen laboratory was the first to introduce a 10g c-sip pouch in early 2002, which led Coca Cola India to use a 25g sunfill pouch, hindstan lever to use a fruit kick pouch, and Kraft Foods to use a 25g, low-cost, single use Tang pouch
