Technological innovation, sustainability, and attractive economics are among the reasons for the remarkable growth of consumer packaging.

The way consumers view and interact with packages is altering. Owing to the rising focus on sustainability, consumers are preferring easily recyclable carton packaging over plastic or tin packaging. The growing market demand for customer-friendly packages and heightened product protection is expected to boost sustainable consumer packaging as a viable and cost-effective solution.

For instance, food & beverage and cosmetic companies are continuously working towards replacing their product packaging with 100% recyclable packaging solutions. In October 2019, Loreal S.A. declared the development of the paper-based cosmetic tube in collaboration with Albea, a provider of cosmetic packaging.

This initiative would reduce environmental impact and enhance the footprint of the L’Oreal packaging. Also, this innovation would enable L’Oreal brands to replace a large amount of plastic currently utilized in their tubes with newly certified paper-like and bio-based material.

According to Pro Carton European Consumer Packaging Perceptions Study 2018, 52% of all Europeans believe carton board/cardboard is the most eco-friendly packaging, followed by glass packaging. According to the same report, 52% of European consumers have switched brands because of the environmental concerns due to the type of material being used in the packaging of products.


Global campaign Love Paper and campaigning group Two Sides organized the European Packaging Preferences 2020 study, with independent company Toluna speaking to 5,900 consumers from nine European countries - Denmark, Finland, Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

According to a survey conducted by Packaging Europe in April 2020, over a third of the respondents believe there will also be a shift in consumer preference around packaging materials/formats and a reduction in consumer enthusiasm for refill/reuse packaging systems.
