Child resistant Bottles Outlook

Growing inclination of customers toward the use of better packaging to propel the demand for child resistant bottles

Packaging is becoming a vital constituent of modern life due to the ease of transportation, storage and inclination of the consumer towards safe and secure packaging. Speaking of safe and secure packaging solutions, child resistant bottles are gaining traction owing to the increasing need for the resistance to opening of the packs by kids, yet being consumer-friendly.

Future Market Insights recent study suggests that the growth of the global child resistant bottles market is driven by the ultimate objective of design level innovations in child resistant bottles which is to increase the resistance to opening of the packs by kids, yet maintaining a consumer-friendly design, which can be easily handled by adults. Research shows great potential of child resistant bottles that provide all the features for packaging for various commodities. In addition to this, it also highlights the features such as-

  • Excellent convenience for carrying and storing products
  • Increasing output with the same workforce
  • Resilience and adaptability to business disruptions
  • Enhanced performance and cost effectiveness
  • Customer experience
  • Extended shelf life
  • Employee experience
  • Revenue and profit growth
  • Business model innovation

The goal of a child resistant bottle is to protect kids from appealing, but dangerous, products while allowing the consumer to use the product when needed. To reach potential outcomes, organizations are investing in intelligent and innovative packaging solutions.

For instance, in October 2021, Berry M&H announced its plans to introduce a child-resistant (CR) Certified bottle and closure combination, which it says will provide “safe and secure” packaging for a range of applications including healthcare and household cleaning products. The child resistance protection is certified according to ISO standards. The company says the bottle range was tested and approved to BS EN ISO 8317:2015. The new CR Certified Pack contains the company’s 500ml PET Single Grip Bottle and its 28mm Deep Non-Vented R4 Clic-Loc cap with EPE42 liner. Berry M&H’s new bottle offers customers child protection properties for industries such as cleaning and DIY, with the company identifying disinfectant, antiseptics, white spirit, sugar soap, and paintbrush cleaners as some of the products that can be stored inside.

The U.S. Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA) of 1970 defines child resistant packaging as – “Significantly difficult for children under five years of age to open or obtain a toxic or harmful amount of the substance contained therein within a reasonable time and not difficult for normal adults to use properly.”

The risk associated with the accidental ingestion of hazardous materials by kids, has long influenced research and innovation in packaging design to create child resistant solutions. Child resistant packaging is defined as special packaging solutions, the contents of which cannot be accessed by kids under the age of 52 months, by virtue of their design. However, it is also important that the same can be used properly by adults, up to 70 years of age.

The idea of child resistant packaging is not very old. Child resistant reclosable packs have been in the market since the mid-1970s, and were first introduced in the U.S. The same were exported to European countries and have achieved high acceptance, across the world. Since their inception, child resistant bottles have undergone improvement at design levels.

The ultimate objective of design level innovations in child resistant bottles is to increase the resistance to opening of the packs by kids, yet maintaining a consumer-friendly design, which can be easily handled by adults.
