New problems faced by the packaging industry

information industry and e-commerce affect all walks of life. Although the impact on the packaging industry lags behind in time, it is inevitable. As the information industry and e-commerce in the United States are in a leading position, the packaging industry in the United States bears the brunt. See Mr Dwivedi's analysis

- improving supply chain efficiency for packaging users

generally speaking, the old mode of comprehensive production is not flexible, and it is facing many problems. With today's communication technology, enterprises can establish a supply chain that includes multiple suppliers, rather than trying to do everything by themselves. In this way, enterprises can increase the flexibility of the system. What does this mean for packaging suppliers

one of the obstacles for the packaging industry to realize technological transformation and adopt new technologies is its unwillingness to carry out equipment transformation. We can all understand how much investment it is to transform the equipment every few years. For example, in many cases, the advantages of flexible packaging compared with rigid packaging are obvious, but financial analysts usually think that the transformation should be postponed until after full depreciation. Therefore, only new plants can use modern technology, and old plants can only continue to use inefficient equipment for production until the next transformation cycle

1. questioning the old business model

the end users of packaging materials traditionally want to have their own packaging production lines because they can't control them, but the huge investment in factories and equipment hinders the technological progress of this industry in many cases. Interestingly, there are such phenomena; Packaging suppliers often bear the full cost of new equipment or provide strong support. Usually, this is only the privilege enjoyed by large users. Small users still have to pay a large amount of money to keep up with technological progress. The old model of integrated production has been questioned recently because other models can be selected. The main drawback of comprehensive production is the growth and rigidity. A product manufacturer produces packaging materials at the same time. Its response to users will not be as fast as that of competitors. Competitors purchase packaging materials according to needs, and it is easy to change suppliers according to market changes

2. establish a supply chain

traditionally, integrated production can achieve low cost and high efficiency. In fact, this is because the number of competing suppliers is limited and it is impossible for suppliers to unite. But the current communication technology makes it possible to manage the supply chain effectively at low cost. Therefore, two questions should be asked to end users:

does owning packaging equipment hinder the acceptance of new technologies

is it possible to increase flexibility by establishing a supply chain that includes multiple suppliers rather than trying to do everything yourself

some large companies have taken packaging as a part of the whole supply chain management. Most of them are transferred to packaging suppliers, which concentrate on producing their own products. What does that mean for packaging supply

as users adopt the latest supply chain management system, packaging enterprises will realize two major advantages: economies of scale and higher system efficiency, such as stopping the movement of the 10 prefix and continuing to add a certain amount of experimental force to make the 10 prefix move slightly ("experimental force maintenance"). As we are responsible for the packaging solutions actually provided, rather than materials and equipment, we need to consider higher system efficiency, speed and modern production, rather than the improvement of technical level expected by customers. Secondly, packaging enterprises can more effectively check the production progress and inventory, because these are determined by the needs of the users they serve, and how to maximize the use of internal resources to meet such needs. This means that supply chain management will also become the main consideration of packaging enterprises. They have to integrate their information systems with users and suppliers in order to fulfill their obligations at the lowest cost and in the most effective way. It is difficult for some processing enterprises to adopt this system because it means a lot of advanced investment

it is hoped that the wide emergence of this system will benefit the packers, and the use proportion of antibacterial and mould proof materials in the medical field will be higher, their users and countless participants. Each company focuses on its core business and Management Alliance, and everyone will get high profits

attaching great importance to the efficiency of the supply chain is not only the result of competition among leading enterprises, but also means that more reforms will take place in the whole packaging industry

II. Market potential of electronic packaging

according to the decentralized market structure of the packaging industry, the electronic market plays a role in the small environment. When buyers and sellers meet in the electronic market, the high dispersion brings them new opportunities

the most frequently heard question is about the potential of the packaging market in the electronics industry. The electronic market is promoting the development of the packaging industry. Although it came late, there are three reasons for its late appearance in the packaging industry: first, electronic packaging is not as simple as other industries, and there are not so many different products in other industries; Secondly, packaging materials, such as metal, polymer and paper, have been sold in other markets; Finally, the early sponsors of the chemical market envisaged that the packaging trade could simply be classified as the chemical industry

is the electronic packaging market meaningful

the packaging industry is not as uniform as the electronic market would like. For example, when polyester can only be produced by large companies, small and medium-sized companies can easily process it into film, and smaller companies can process it into more usable shapes. The same is true for metal, glass, paper, wood and other packaging materials. Therefore, the packaging industry is a mixture of companies of various sizes, and the diversity and dispersion are often not suitable for the electronic market. However, due to this market structure, the electronic market began to play a role in the small environment

III. make your enterprise change rapidly

if you are a packaging company frustrated when trying to accept e-commerce, in fact, you are not the only one. However, in order to successfully operate on, some simple strategies that can be implemented by both packaging enterprises and e-commerce providers can be adopted. When e-commerce solutions continue to emerge, packaging enterprises have been slower to accept them than other industries. These companies have suffered setbacks because they have not found the right solution for themselves. From the conversations with e-commerce providers and packaging enterprises, it is believed that both sides must make some contributions before benefiting and complementing each other. Most packaging enterprises are seriously committed to looking for opportunities in the market. Benefits and strategic thinking are now evident to almost all decision makers. However, it is not easy to realize such transfer, especially these enterprises do not have the freedom to postpone the implementation and make contributions to realize upward operation

the leaders of packaging enterprises must still achieve the conventional business objectives, that is, the expectations of investors. When you accept a solution, some competitors are already talking about updating more solutions. For this reason, the situation becomes more complicated. At the same time, e-commerce providers must recognize that the traditional packaging industry has a very prominent user-centered feature. Most users rely on the product quality of packaging suppliers and trust the information they provide. Packaging suppliers also try to be kind to their users. This clear user relationship and relative stability make it unnecessary for them to find new users in many cases. It is understandable that it is difficult for dotcom to understand these. Generally speaking, they start from a blank sheet of paper and are easy to change employees. They are under great pressure to increase their income in the short term

four main problems faced by the packaging industry: what functions or users should we transfer to? What is valuable to our users and investors? What kind of priorities should we prioritize without wasting our resources? How fast can we keep up with technological changes without having to invest too much money? These problems are not so easy to solve because they must balance financial objectives with limited resources. There are several points to consider:

(1) without first-class operation, the operation will not succeed. Without good operation support, the coolest e-commerce still lags far behind the international advanced level in terms of basic key materials, technologies, manufacturing processes and other aspects, and the facilities can not achieve the effect

(2) e-commerce must be closely combined with the overall arrangement. Without the combination of hardware and implementation process, it can only produce electronic chaos, as early practitioners have seen

(3) if you do not fully understand e-commerce, do not try to implement it yourself. It is a new and complex thing, which changes much faster than the packaging industry we are used to. Therefore, strategically speaking, packaging enterprises should seriously consider implementing these functions from the outside and focus on improving management

what should e-commerce providers do

among the solutions provided by e-commerce providers to the packaging industry, only a few of them have initially focused on the packaging industry. Most of them are serving other industries and do not spend enough time understanding the special needs of our industry. Based on their successful experience in other industries, these companies are very confident that their solutions can solve all the problems in the packaging industry. For the reasons mentioned above, packaging companies may have never experienced these problems. We encourage these suppliers to consider the dynamic characteristics of the packaging industry, deepen their understanding of its characteristics and provide solutions to these problems
