Packaging isn’t passive anymore

With flexible and hybrid electronics (FHE), the packaging industry is definitely thinking outside the box. FHE is powering new ways to manage inventory, track items as they are shipped, better maintain product freshness, monitor medication usage, identify packing materials for re-cycling and turn consumer packaging into an interactive platform.

This interactivity can be used for marketing purposes so that products on the store shelf can now communicate with consumers, for promotion, brand protection and to fight product tampering, counterfeiting and theft. Another priority application for the industry is to prevent food spoilage, considering that a full third of the world’s food goes to waste.

These are applications and opportunities that impact players from all corners of the packaging value chain, from start of life to next life. These include retailers, consumer brands, package manufacturers and services, waste management and government.

We see a tremendous opportunity to help shape the evolution of this industry.
