The flexible packaging industry remains strong. We continue to see more prod- ucts converted to flexible packaging as consumer product companies look to reduce cost and move toward more innovative and sustainable packaging. What does the future hold for the flexible packaging industry? Innovation will continue to drive growth in the flexible packaging market. We will see increased use of standup pouches and films with spouts and other advanced reclose features. All the recent improvements in the flexographic printing equipment, plate and prepress technology will position converters to take advantage of these growth areas. What is the importance of process control in the flexible packaging industry? Process control is essential in today ’s market. The correct implementation and use of process control impacts everything in the supply chain from prod- uct branding to sustainability. For the flexographic printer, faster equipment speeds, more complex graphics and the growing use of expanded gamut printing requires maintaining the printing process within control limits. 36 FLEXO FEBRUARY 2014 www.flexography.org
