Build Sustainability and Competitiveness: Plastic Packaging Industry

May 30, 2022by Faber Infinite

Packaging is one of the fastest-growing industries, with a global value of USD 700 billion. Plastics are being used in the packaging of materials such as food, beverages, oil, and so on. Plastics are used extensively due to their performance, cost-effectiveness, and durability. The plastic packaging market grew at a 3.47 percent CAGR from 2021 to 2026.

However, there are several challenges and risks faced by the plastic packaging industry today. High inflation and rising prices, a lack of skilled workforce, difficulty obtaining raw materials due to insufficient infrastructure, growing environmental concerns, efficient recycling of mixed plastic waste, and many more are some of the issues facing the industry.

Most often organizations are hardwired to consider factors such as the product’s quality, usability, and benefits. This frequently takes the focus away from the packaging. In some cases, businesses are unaware of how their packaging affects them. Thus, to make organizations aware of the market trends and to enhance efficiency, Faber Infinite has devised tools like Inventory management, Single Minute Exchange of Dye (SMED), Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF), Mean Time to Repair (MTTR), Time & Motion Study, and others. These are some of the methods for developing structured manufacturing facilities and profitable businesses.

Food packaging, which is a major consumer of plastics, is increasingly replacing traditional materials such as paperboard, metals, and glass with more advantageous properties such as plastics due to its lightweight and low-cost benefits.

One of the clients in the plastic packaging industry had collaborated with Faber Infinite Consulting for efficiency improvement, changeover time reduction, and productivity improvement across various sections of manufacturing as part of the continuous improvement journey.

The tangible benefits delivered to the client from the plastic packaging industry during their improvement journey are:
  • Productivity has increased by 37%.
