Leading innovators in biodegradable packaging

The packaging industry continues to be a hotbed of patent innovation. Activity is driven by recyclability, durability, transparency, and extended shelf life, and growing importance of technologies such as shrink wrapping, smart packaging, 3D printing, and computer aided design. In the last three years alone, there have been over 427,000 patents filed and granted in the packaging industry, according to GlobalData’s report on Innovation in packaging: biodegradable packaging films.

Biodegradable packaging films refer to the films or materials used for packaging that can break down and decompose into natural components in the environment without causing harm. These films are typically made from natural materials such as starch, cellulose, and various biodegradable polymers and can be used for various packaging applications, including food packaging and consumer goods.
