Whitepaper: Packaging ready for its revolution

As has repeatedly been illustrated by the research conducted for many years by the international exhibition for packaging and intralogistics ALL4PACK Paris, “Packaging is the mirror image of our society.”

Four major challenges that will transform how we live and drive change in packaging:

  • Population ageing,
  • Resource depletion,
  • Development of artificial intelligence in all areas,
  • Increased mobility with autonomous vehicles, and as far into space.

Packaging today constantly readjusts and reshapes to fulfill the expectations of consumers and meet the concerns of contemporary society, such as: awareness of environmental issues, the fight against waste, the impact of products on health, the guarantee of fool-proof safety and security, etc.

But let’s take a look even further. What could packaging be like by 2050?

Discover this whitepaper written by Fabrice Peltier, Designer and consultant for ALL4PACK Paris, which offers an analysis of the contributions of the designers, together with insight from its author. It defines the four challenges for society that lie ahead for the European population, and more broadly for the human race, in the coming thirty years and aims to help readers gain a better understanding of the type of revolution that awaits the packaging of the 21st-century.
