Smart (or intelligent) packaging for goods is packaging which goes beyond the basic function of passively containing and protecting the product by adding useful functionality with real benefits for the consumer.
This comprehensive IDTechEx Research report covers the upcoming requirements and drivers for smart packaging; feedback from Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) brands with their views of smart packaging; assessment of enabling technologies; smart packaging case studies; key players; and forecasts of electronic smart packaging.
This analysis is done on a global basis, from assessing the rise of QR codes in China to the latest electronic smart labels based on novel semiconductors and other components that are enabling a radical change in the $400 billion+ packaging industry.
IDTechEx concludes how the global demand for electronic smart packaging features will be a $895 million market in 2030 versus $55 million in 2020 (and more if the infrastructure, software and services are also included). Based on an impartial analysis, IDTechEx expects that almost 21 billion packages sold in 2030 will feature an electronic feature to enhance the package.
