If it is said that the product is the core value, then the packaging is the marketing hero that makes customers pay attention to the product. Therefore, today packaging is becoming one of the hot industries with great potential for development. However, when Covid 19 broke out, a series of major economies slowed down, causing the packaging industry to be greatly affected. So what are the most obvious impacts of the epidemic for this industry? What is the direction that packaging manufacturers should aim for?
The Covid-19 epidemic has caused the packaging industry to fall into crisis
As one of the industries with great potential and demand, packaging businesses are currently in crisis with the stressful situation of Covid – 19. Some businesses in epidemic-hit areas are even suspending products to ensure the safety of their employees.
According to experts, if the control of Covid-19 is not done well from now until the end of 2021, not only packaging but many other industries will face difficulties. In which, the most prominent are the difficulties in capital, human and distribution. Detail:
Due to social distancing to ensure better control of the epidemic, the wave of workers returning to factories will be delayed. Since then, packaging production and business enterprises will not have enough human resources to operate the system.
At the same time, packaging enterprises also face many challenges in preventing and controlling security when workers return to work.
The demand for plastic beads for packaging production after the epidemic is over will tend to increase sharply because food companies, restaurants, hotels … will reopen. Therefore, it is likely that packaging enterprises will face a shortage of raw materials and supplies… In the worst case, the increase in the price of input materials makes the production stage difficult.
The demand for packaging is huge, especially in densely populated markets or developed economies: China, the US, Europe… Therefore, when Covid – 19 takes place globally, businesses will have to face challenges. Faced with the slow push of the distribution channel, the waiting time for goods will be longer. In many cases, it is not even possible to transport and sell abroad.
Likewise with the domestic market, in many areas that are in the epicenter of the epidemic and are being separated, transportation and distribution will face difficulties. From there, it directly affects the sales volume as well as the ability to rotate and recover capital for manufacturing enterprises.
