Packaging provides safety and security to the product during the supply chain process such as storage and transportation, by which the quality of the product can be maintained. Clamshell packaging is widely used in different industries such as food & beverage, fruits & vegetables, and electronics. Thermoformed plastic is generally used to produce the clamshell packaging boxes. These clamshell packaging boxes are transparent and are made by joining two halves of thermoplastics and then they are heat sealed. Different types of plastics such as PVC, polystyrene, and polyester can also be used to make clamshell packaging boxes.

  • In addition, the food packaging industry is on the frontline within the global packaging market, owing to the demand for essential products such as groceries and fresh food mainly from local e-retail sites.
  • Industrial, transportation, and bulk packaging has faced a sharp decline, owing to decreased demand for non-essential goods during the first two quarters of 2020.
  • Owing to the lowered disposable income of maximum population and weak demand for packaging from industrial goods, the packaging industry might face significant pressure of reduction in both wholesale as well as retail costs.
  • Consumers are likely to stay hesitant for consumption of luxury products, travel, and hospitality services, which is expected to hinder the packaging industry growth in the future after the COVID-19 crisis.
