The use of AI and automation will have a significant impact on packaging companies

Increasing demand for consumer products is driving production innovations. These “think outside the package” strategies are fueling stronger production techniques and more environmentally-friendly reusable packaging. The first change in packaging innovation comes from the technology behind the products and the packages that house them. The future of the packaging industry will be shaped by a range of disruptive themes, with artificial intelligence (AI) being one of the themes that will have a significant impact on packaging companies.
