The report covers APAC, Europe, North America, and ROW; it also covers the landscape of the market and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

Smart packaging refers to the use of a material that is capable of sensing a change in its immediate external environment through the use of sensors and indicators, thereby increasing the shelf life of the items inside. An automatic rectifying action takes place in response to the change in environment (temperature, moisture content, and pressure).

Anti-microbial films, using additives, control the growth of microorganisms as well. Also, the films are fitted with radio frequency identification (RFID) tags which help in tracking the items. This is expected to have a significant impact on the market growth during the forecast period.

According to the report, demand for interactive and user-friendly packs is rising because of the rise in the number of retail outlets worldwide. Blister packs not only safeguard products against harmful gases, ultraviolet rays, humidity, and mechanical hazards, but also provide brand recognition and a user-friendly interface to display product information. Blister packs should be convenient to use and dispose of. For instance, unit-dose blister packaging of pharmaceuticals allows both visual and mental reminders to patients on their daily dose. Also, advances in technology permit vendors to increase the instructiveness and user-friendliness of blister packs.

Further, the report states that fluctuation in raw material prices is a major challenge hindering the market growth.
