5 Packaging Trends in 2024

Discover the future of poly bags with the latest packaging trends, innovations, and technologies. 

1. Sustainable Packaging Solutions

Sustainability is becoming more present in the packaging industry, with consumers and businesses prioritizing eco-friendly solutions. Biodegradable and compostable poly bags lead the charge, offering a viable alternative to traditional plastic packaging. 

Here at A-Pac Manufacturing, we recognize the urgency of this shift toward sustainability. Prioritizing our more sustainable poly bags is our next step in offering you more of the environmentally friendly solutions you’re looking for. Our clients can order the same, reliable, versatile custom poly bags with up to 20% plant-based material. Using NuPlastiQ® technology, we can deliver the plastic bags you trust to package your products and display your brand, but better — for your company and the planet.

2. Smart Packaging Technologies

In today’s increasingly digital era, smart packaging technologies revolutionize traditional packaging functionalities. Among these advancements are RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags. They’re a game-changer in inventory management and tracking. By embedding RFID tags within your packaging, businesses can enable seamless inventory monitoring throughout the supply chain, optimizing logistics and streamlining operations. Beyond mere inventory management, smart packaging solutions also offer interactive capabilities that enhance customer engagement, such as QR code technologies. 

If you think your business would benefit from this technology, it’s definitely worth looking into! These packaging solutions are offered from various other manufacturers that you can pair with our products here at A-Pac Manufacturing. 

3. Enhanced Protection and Preservation

At A-Pac, we’re committed to safeguarding the integrity of your goods from production to consumption. By incorporating cutting-edge additives into our packaging solutions, such as VCI (rust inhibitor), UVI (ultraviolet protection), and EVA (increased strength), we can create barriers against oxygen, moisture, and other external factors that can compromise product freshness and quality. 

These additives provide additional layers of protection, ensuring that your products maintain their integrity and appeal. They also help reduce waste and enhance customer satisfaction. Whether it’s protecting against rust, UV rays, or increasing the strength of the packaging, our innovative solutions can be tailored to meet your specific needs and exceed expectations.

4. Flexible Packaging Solutions

In 2024, flexible packaging continues to gain momentum as businesses and consumers recognize its numerous advantages over rigid alternatives. Poly bags have emerged as versatile and flexible packaging solutions catering to various industries. Their inherent flexibility allows for easy storage, transportation, and handling.

Here are some of the most popular poly bag options that we provide at A-Pac Manufacturing:

  • Slip vs. No-Slip Bags: Slip bags are easy to open and prevent the sides of the bag from sticking together. 
  • Anti-Block: This feature roughs up the poly bag surface.  A good use case would be for products that are stacked, anit-block is used so your products don’t slip off the palate when stacked. 
  • Anti-Static: This feature protects against static.  For example, it is used for computer components or technology where static would cause damage.

The advantages of poly bags extend beyond their flexibility – they also provide excellent protection against moisture, dust, and contaminants, ensuring product integrity throughout the supply chain. Poly bags offer a reliable and cost-effective solution, whether for packaging food items, clothing, or industrial products.

In response to the escalating demand for flexible packaging, our poly bags come in various sizes and thicknesses and offer a variety of additive and customizable printing options.
