It’s not just you: the world is changing. Consumer habits and demands are shifting, and companies need to change with them or fail. Generation Next – those born after 1995 – is a force that we all need to take into account when creating new products and services for consumers.
Gone are the days where “good enough” was good enough; now, people want perfection, down to the smallest detail imaginable. So naturally, this poses a challenge for manufacturers who have been using traditional packaging methods such as folding cartons or corrugated boxes for decades. Still, it also presents an opportunity if they can learn how to adjust and respond accordingly!
Helping the Gen-Next
This blog post will explore how Generation Next has changed society’s expectations of what constitutes quality packaging by looking at examples and examining the different approaches manufacturers can take to meet those demands.
Many companies are helping customers achieve success both today and in the future by providing customized solutions for rigid box packaging that is perfect for Generation Next’s high standards and many other customer needs!
Rigid box packaging is mainly helpful for product distribution rather than storage of bulk items. They are primarily used for pharmaceuticals and medical products due to the ability to keep these highly fragile goods safe during transportation.
Rigid boxes also provide a greater degree of tamper evidence as compared with corrugated packaging options, which can be critical in specific industries such as food and beverage or personal care where tampering could seriously endanger consumers’ lives. The rigid box itself may even incorporate features that reduce aspects such as damage at point-of-purchase (e.g., in-store displays).
Rigid boxes are typically made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or corrugated fiberboard, which is sometimes combined with a paper board for the outer face sheet of the product.
The more rigid materials that can be used depending on factors such as the weight and stacking strength required, but they do not corrode like metal which makes them suitable for longer life span products, especially when stored outdoors, e.g., pharmaceuticals due to their resistance to moisture penetration and also chemicals including UV rays.
