Squeezable films market– A historical analysis
The way in which consumers perceive and interact with packaged products is a constantly evolving process, and has long influenced the packaging industry. Convenience and sustainability are two of the key focus areas for the development of new packaging products. This has led to the rise of flexible packaging format, and gradual replacement of conventional rigid packaging solutions with their flexible alternatives. The transition towards flexible packaging has led to the development of several innovating packaging formats, including squeezable variants. Squeezable packaging solutions have been adopted for food products such as cream cheese. However, the key challenge posed by squeezable packaging is to use efficient squeezable films, which possesses high flexibility and conformability. The requirement for flexible films which could cover round shapes with thin walls led to the introduction of squeezable films. Over time, squeezable films with high printability were manufactured, which could be used for a wide range of squeezable packaging formats, with tubes being the most prominent one. Furthermore, due to high printability, squeezable films are used for enhancing brand image. Therefore, they function both as a means for the brand to interact with its customers by printing important product related information, and as an enhancement to the product’s consumer-appeal. Squeezable films have been adopted as labels for flexible packaging products ranging from shampoo bottles to cans. The demand for squeezable films is expected to rise as flexible takes over rigid. Also, since squeezable films are improved upon conventional labels, they can also be used for the labelling rigid packaging formats. This provides them a significant edge over their conventional counterparts.
