Connected packaging is the activation and integration of several technologies within the product packaging to enable an improved user experience, offer a greater level of consumer behavior analysis, and increase product engagement. Technologies such as NFC, RFID, and QR Codes are used. It helps brands communicate information to consumers and increase engagement. It also allows sharing of exclusive content to consumers by scanning or tapping mobile devices. Such features drive the global connected packaging market growth. In addition, the increasing need for monitoring customer satisfaction and loyalty also fosters the demand for connected packaging. Continuous developments by key manufacturers also contribute to market growth.

  • For instance, on November 2021, the world's leading food processing and packaging company, Tetra Pak, launched a new ‘universal’ connected experience accessed through smart packaging and available to all brands.

  • On April 2019, Tetra Pak declared the launch of its connected packaging platform, which transforms milk and juice cartons into interactive information channels, full-scale data carriers, and digital tools.​

Factors such as digitization, increased operational efficiency, greater customer involvement, and improved tracking contribute to the overall growth of the global connected packaging market. The rising need for multi-specialty wrapping to maintain nutritional and health value & freshness quality in the products also fosters market growth. Furthermore, the increasing customer desire for comfort food leads to the utilization of connected packaging technologies such as NFC and QR codes, thus, driving market growth.

High operational costs required for implementing connected packaging are a key factor restraining market growth. The cost associated with the hardware, software, and training expenditures are relatively more expensive than traditional packaging solutions. Moreover, the development of the connected packaging market is also restricted by the rising concerns about various legislation & standards for the use of plastic in the packaging industry.


COVID-19 harmed the global connected packaging market. Large-scale supply chain disruptions that led to halting production were observed in the early stages of the pandemic. The connected packaging market also faced the negative impacts of COVID-19, which resulted in a decrease in sales. However, the market is anticipated to recover as leading end-use industries resume operations. A greater focus on decontaminating packages and products inside will make the connected packaging market imperative across specific industries such as food and beverages, cosmetics and personal care, and pharmaceuticals.
