Accidental child poisoning is a key concern behind the production demand for child-resistant packaging solutions. Pharmaceuticals remain a leading end-consumer industry for adult-friendly packaging options.
These bags for edibles keep odors intact and prevent moisture from entering the bag, which is focused by the Food and Health sector manufacturers for maintaining their product quality. These packaging products are being adopted as they can reduce the risk of ingestion of potentially hazardous products among children.
Safety and security are key features focused on by manufacturers while designing child-resistant zippers. To ensure enclosable packages meets the US Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA), manufacturers need innovation and in-house testing mechanisms.
Third-party agencies are also appealed for certification of safety standards by manufacturers aligned with the federal test standards. These bags are popular for their tear and puncture resistance, providing clouded windows and different hand holes that improvise quality. Companies offering press-to-close zippers to ensure convenience and reliability of pouch possibly gained more customer attention.
Manufacturers also can offer custom requirements in terms of films, freezer-safe, and microwaveable options. Sustainability can be implemented in terms of sustainable film structures and producing post-consumer recycled packaging(PCR) options. The use of PCR can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 15.25% for a manufacturer.
Designing a child-resistant packaging solution is challenging as it needs to be hard for a child and easy for an adult to operate. Manufacturers need new closure technologies and research to meet these design requirements. Pictorial instructions are innovatively used by manufacturers that provide information to end users.
In-house design teams and material experts are needed by manufacturers to keep their market advantage over others. Sourcing raw materials and keeping production costs within limits to ensure margin profit is another challenge faced by manufacturers.
The recent pandemic had less impact on child-resistant packaging solutions as, during 2019-2022, the demand for food and pharmaceutical noticed growth. Overall after the relaxation of lockdowns, other industries also started to resume the demand for child-resistant packages, which projects a rise in demand for these products to continue for the forecast duration.
