And all of this gives rise to the packaging business.
Why do we need packaging?
Goods need to be transferred from one place to another safely and this can only be achieved by transporting goods in packaging boxes. Without it, many of the goods would be damaged and spoiled before reaching their specified destination. In underdeveloped countries where they do not have proper packaging industries as in developed and developing countries, more than 50% of the times the goods never reach to its consumer.
Different types of products need different types of packaging for e.g. goods like fruits and vegetables do not need any sort of safe packing to be carried from shop to the customer, but when they have to be transferred to shops they need to be packed properly in order to prevent fruits and vegetables from spoiling. Packaging is a multi-stage process for getting goods from production to consumption. The first primary stage is the way we take goods home, secondary stage is boxes, trays and film wrap that group the item together and third is the transport stage i.e. in the form cartons, large containers and pallets that allow the grouped items to be loaded into different vehicles like trucks, lorries, carts etc.

You cannot give water or the other liquid materials in paper bags but you can give scrubbers, soap etc. in paper bags. Similarly, shoes need to be protected from the external environment there fore they have to be packed in specialized cardboard boxes. Thus the production companies need to have packaging boxes best suited for their products and that’s why they provide templates for packaging boxes.
Sometimes we open a product and find it to be sealed in several packages e.g. for a laptop or desktop computers we see a cushion covering, a plastic packet, a bubble wrap, then a thermopile sheet and then lastly the cardboard box.

It is important to remember that main purpose of packaging is to protect goods and to ensure that goods inside are not wasted because of the damage. Typically more resources are spent in the contents inside than the packaging outside, which is itself a measure to protect the environment because it is helping to save the resources.
These days urban population cannot afford to have fresh fruits and vegetables from the farms so that they have to rely on food that is grown in villages or countryside and then they are transported to the urban areas to fulfill their eating needs. Without packaging there would be a greater effect on the environment and a lot of food would have been wasted.

Companies survive by making
goods that are better, cost friendly and of good quality as compared to their
competitors. And this includes packaging also. It is also a fact that sometimes
companies do compromise on the recycling factor of the packaging.
