Protection

Generally speaking, the fundamental function of packing is to protect its contents from any damage that may occur during transportation, handling, or storage. Packaging ensures that the product remains intact throughout the whole logistical chain, from the manufacturer to the final user. It shields the product from the effects of humidity, light, heat, and other environmental variables. This is by far the most essential function served by packing. A common result is that a product is packaged in a quantity that is far greater than the real product. This is especially true when purchasing things from online retailers. Depending on the product, the amount of packing trash it generates can be quite substantial. Overall, the objective of packaging is to protect, however there is a distinction between clever and well-made packaging and packaging that is not created for its intended use.

Branding and marketing

Packaging plays an essential role in the development of a product’s brand and marketing. A distinctive package, such as custom plastic packaging, can boost the attractiveness of a product and, as a result, influence the willingness to purchase the goods. Packaging is just as crucial as the product it contains.  Its goal is to make the product stand out on the shelf or on the website, increase sales, provide useful information about the product, and increase attention. A product’s packaging can also communicate a whole story about the company that created it, as well as about the product’s environmental, social, and economic implications. It serves as a tool for communicating the company’s beliefs as well as the numerous benefits that the product provides to the consumer.

Usability

Consumers are seeking for packaging that is appropriate for the product. They require packaging that is useful as well as being extremely user-friendly. Consumers are the only ones who can assess the utility of a product’s packaging. Some of the consumer’s criteria will be met by packaging that is simple to open and close, easy to compress and sort after use, and that can be reused or recycled in some form. 

Sustainability

Prior to making a purchasing decision, more and more consumers are considering the carbon footprint, reusability, and recycleability of the packaging materials that they are considering. In fact, the more positively sustainable packaging is seen, the greater the beneficial influence it has on sales figures. The design of the packaging has an important part in determining how easy it is to separate the materials from one another and, consequently, how easy it is to reuse and recycle the packaging. The ability to make more with less not only saves resources, but it also leaves less material for the customer to properly handle.
