Plastic packaging is the most effective way to reduce the weight of packaging

has shown good prospects for utilization in many fields [China Packaging News] according to the Research Report of the European Association of plastic manufacturers (APME), the average weight of plastic used for packaging has decreased by 28% in recent ten years, with an annual reduction of more than 1.8 million tons, saving resources, of which plastic packaging film is the most effective, accounting for more than 70% of the savings, The annual consumption of packaging materials in Europe is 66.4 million tons, of which plastic is 11.6 million tons, accounting for 17% and 50% of the packaged goods

the advantages of plastic flexible packaging are: light weight, soft, less waste, small space occupation, low cost and high cost effectiveness (volume and weight of packaging per unit weight), so it is more competitive than hard packaging. The development direction of plastic materials is to improve performance and reduce costs, which will promote brand merchants who want to recycle their product packaging and integrate into the circular economy to launch new initiatives and be conducive to environmental protection

therefore, it can be said that plastic, especially plastic flexible packaging, is the most effective way to reduce the weight of packaging. The reduced weight is even greater than the recycling and repeated consumption (1.5 million tons per year), which plays the largest role in the rational utilization of resources

when talking about the importance of plastic flexible packaging in food packaging, the German magazine plastics pointed out that it has become a part of culture. In addition to packaging, it can also prevent damage by packaging, reduce the requirements for storage, provide information to consumers, serve customers more effectively, and make goods easy for family management, storage and transportation. This can be expressed by the following figures: 30% - 50% of food in developing countries is damaged in storage and transportation, while that in Western European developed countries is only 1% - 2% The plastic flexible packaging market has become one of the fastest growing varieties in packaging due to its good comprehensive performance and performance price ratio

it can be seen that the average annual growth rate of plastic flexible packaging consumption was higher than that of other packaging methods in the past and in the future, which was not only faster than that of paper packaging, but also higher than that of plastic hard packaging. The data provided by the famous American business communication company (BCC) in the special report on the plastic flexible packaging industry in the process of becoming a public company is that the total consumption of the world plastic flexible packaging market reached 6.31 million tons only in 2001, and the largest consumption at present is food packaging, which is 1.68 million tons

in a word, colorful plastic flexible packaging, with its excellent comprehensive performance, continues to replace other packaging, with increasingly expanded use, reasonable price and favorable environment, has become the fastest-growing product in the packaging industry. It is expected that it will continue to maintain a good growth trend in the next few years with the increase of CPE consumption

in order to improve market competitiveness, plastic flexible packaging will develop in the direction of thin-walled and high-performance, and the demand for multilayer composite films will grow faster than that of ordinary single-layer films. The development of new plastic brands and the progress of processing technology promote the progress of plastic flexible packaging technology. Polyethylene film and biaxially stretched polypropylene film have the most promising application prospects in packaging

with the development of new varieties and brands of plastics, and the improvement of processing technology and machinery, the performance of materials and packaging products has been improved, which can not only reduce material consumption and cost, but also meet people's requirements for the environment
