Analysis of the current situation of flexible packaging materials (II)

1.3 the development trend of the world's overall flexible packaging materials

in the world's flexible packaging material industry, the largest consumption is plastic, which generally accounts for 25% to 70% of the total consumption of packaging materials. Taking the United States, Japan and Germany, which have the most developed plastic industry, as examples, the shares of packaging plastics in the total consumption of plastic in the next two months are 27.2%, 32.8% and 27.2% respectively. Countries with more than 40% are: New Zealand Croatia, Finland, South Africa, Italy, Spain and other countries, with the highest proportion of New Zealand as high as 55%. Among developed countries, the highest proportion of plastic packaging and plastic consumption in Italy is 49%, and plastic packaging accounts for about 25% of plastic consumption in China

the advantages of plastic flexible packaging based on film are: light weight, soft, less waste, small space, low cost and high cost effectiveness, so it is more competitive than hard packaging. The development direction of plastic materials is to improve performance, reduce cost and be conducive to environmental protection. With the development of new varieties and brands of plastics and the improvement of processing technology and machinery, the performance of materials and packaging products has been improved, which can not only reduce material consumption and cost, but also meet people's requirements for the environment. According to the Research Report of the European Association of plastic manufacturers in 2004, the average weight of plastic used for packaging has decreased by 28% in the past decade, with an annual reduction of more than 1.8 million tons, saving resources. Among them, plastic packaging film is the most effective, accounting for more than 70% of the savings. The annual consumption of European packaging materials is 66.4 million tons, including 11.6 million tons of plastic, accounting for 17%, but packaging 50% of European goods. Therefore, it can be said that, Plastic, especially plastic flexible packaging, is the most effective way to reduce the weight of packaging. The reduced weight is even greater than the amount of recycling, which plays the largest role in the rational utilization of resources. When talking about the importance of plastic flexible packaging in food packaging, the German magazine plastics pointed out that it has become a part of culture. In addition to its packaging function, it can also prevent damage by packaging, reduce the requirements for storage, provide information to consumers, serve customers more effectively, and make goods easy for family management, storage and transportation, This can be expressed by the following figures: 30% - 50% of food in developing countries is damaged in storage and transportation, while only 1% - 2% in Western European developed countries. Plastic flexible packaging market and forecast due to its good comprehensive performance and performance price ratio, plastic flexible packaging has become the fastest-growing variety in packaging. Taking the United States as an example, plastic flexible packaging was only less than half of paper flexible packaging in 1987, and it is expected to exceed paper flexible packaging by 2006

in a word, colorful plastic flexible packaging has become the fastest-growing product in the packaging industry because of its excellent comprehensive performance, reasonable price and conducive to the environment. It continues to replace other packaging, and its use is expanding day by day. It is expected to maintain a good growth momentum in the next few years. In order to improve market competitiveness, plastic flexible packaging is developing towards thin-walled and high-performance, and the demand for multilayer composite films is growing faster than that of ordinary single-layer films. The development of new plastic brands and the progress of processing technology promote the progress of plastic flexible packaging technology. Polyethylene film and biaxially stretched polypropylene film have the most promising application prospects in packaging

Second, the development status and direction of flexible packaging materials in China

2.1 the development process of flexible packaging in China

the application of flexible packaging in China began in the 1970s. In 1979, Guangdong cannery took the lead in introducing a set of Rui vanadium composite paper brick aseptic packaging equipment of diantetra Pak packaging company, which accounts for a high proportion of the system cost of vanadium batteries, for packaging sugarcane juice, fruit juice, soymilk, chrysanthemum tea and other liquid drinks. Since 1984, food and beverage enterprises have successively introduced sterile packaging production line equipment produced in Sweden, the United States, Japan, Germany and other countries, which has brought China's flexible packaging market into a new development period

in recent years, with the continuous improvement of material processing technology in China, people can't live without shopping bags, commodity bags, garbage bags, fresh-keeping bags, etc; Flexible packaging is also widely used in industrial products packaging, household goods packaging, clothing packaging, pharmaceutical packaging, etc. It is understood that at present, food flexible packaging accounts for about 50% of the flexible packaging market share, followed by medical devices and drug packaging, accounting for about 25% of the market share

there is still a big gap between the development level of flexible packaging in China and the world level. For example, the proportion of flexible packaging and similar packaging in developed countries has accounted for 65%, and some have exceeded 70%, while China only accounts for 5%. At the end of the tenth five year plan, about 6.75 billion aseptic fresh-keeping flexible packaging cartons are needed every year, with great development potential. There are many new types of packaging that need to be developed. For example, at present, the processing of vegetable juice in China is almost blank. Relevant departments and experts predict that in the next five to ten years, China's vegetable juice drinks or seasonings will be greatly developed, and the best packaging for this kind of products is sterile soft packaging. In addition, aseptic flexible packaging for tea, alcohol and other products also needs to be developed, which will indicate the rapid growth of the demand for flexible packaging

the development of flexible packaging materials in China is only a matter of nearly two decades, especially in the past decade, through the large-scale introduction of raw material film production equipment, printing equipment, composite equipment, etc., the production, development and use of flexible packaging materials are increasing, new products and materials emerge in endlessly, the physical property evaluation of materials is becoming more and more important, and the testing technology and various performance experiment methods and standards have also been produced one after another

since entering the 21st century, the demand for testing instruments has begun to grow rapidly, and the market competition has intensified. The world's first-class packaging and printing enterprises are accelerating their development in China by absolutely holding shares, establishing wholly-owned production enterprises, managing holding companies, merging and acquiring Chinese advantageous enterprises, and they have brought new ideology. Domestic packaging enterprises are aware of the crisis and opportunities, and spare no effort to improve the competitiveness of their enterprises through various ways. Many enterprises have realized that product quality is the life of enterprises and an important guarantee for their survival and development. More and more enterprises attach importance to product quality. One of the important links to improve product quality is quality inspection. Regular inspection in the quality inspection department can not fundamentally solve the quality problem, and the inspection cost is expensive. Therefore, a considerable number of enterprises set up their own quality inspection departments to purchase inspection equipment and conduct self inspection anytime and anywhere. The demand for experimental instruments has entered a period of rapid development

in general, the development of equipment has promoted the progress of soft materials. Although the utilization and innovation of soft packaging materials in China is still in its infancy, the healthy market and the emergence of talents in large numbers promote the great progress in this field. There are more and more kinds of flexible packaging materials, but now there are very few in China that are really used in the packaging field. There are still many difficulties on our way forward. The 450000 ton propane dehydrogenation to propylene project of satellite Petrochemical is put into trial operation. We should solve them one by one with the attitude of seeking truth from facts and the recommendation of relevant departments and local governments. We believe that the future of the flexible packaging material market will be better
