HOW COVID CHANGED PACKAGING INDUSTRY.
Economic system is adapting to a new business phase forced by Covid, a phase called “new normal”. The same is happening for the whole packaging industry, which is adapting to an extremely unstable situation – but still very intense for consumption of commodities and their packagings.i.
During the Covid period the lack of raw material for packaging contributed to the use of traditional materials. Moreover, the deferral of orders together with the practice of social distancing boosted companies’ need for activating digital, automatic processes for both working and supplying – agile work indeed.
“NEW NORMAL” PHASE: DATA AND ANALYSIS.
DS Smith, a packaging multinational corporation, conducted a survey which shows that 65% of their clients bought online more than usual – almost 2 million people during the first months in 2020, according to the evaluation from NetComm, the European and Italian group for online commerce.
From the 700 thousand people who usually join online commerce during the first 4 months of the year, in 2020 1,3 million client added up to the usual amount. This process of digitalization, due to lockdown, increased the total of users up to 2 million. (Data from NetComm)
“Online transactions shown a significant boom which almost lead to a stop of traditional sales”, declared Ted Doheny, CEO of Sealed Air, during an interview released to an important specialized magazine.
