Many manufacturers think that product and performance are the most important aspects of their brand. They don’t understand that great packaging design can also play a vital role in their sales. It’s simple, people in this millennial generation are far more attracted to beauty than functionality. The physical appearance of a product matters a lot because when we go out to buy something, we first judge the product by its appearance.


Creative packaging can make your brand stand out and has the following benefits.

  1. Attracts customers.

FMCG industries are now operating in an era where the market is concentrated with millennials and Gen Z who are attracted and associate themselves with good-looking products. When going out shopping the first thing they see on a shelf is the product packaging. If the packaging is engaging and eye-catchy, it automatically attracts the customer towards itself. The visual representation of the product encourages the customer to take a closer look at the product. Good packaging gives your product a premium look. Good color combination, font style, and graphics for your packaging will definitely appeal to the customer. Consumers are willing to pay more for the ease, appearance, dependability, and prestige of better packaging.

  1. Differentiates your brand.

Having a unique packaging differentiates your products from others that have similar products as yours. You can make your product different by making a minimal logo, and using a color combination also helps you to make your product packaging different from the competitors. These basic things will enable your customers to recognize your products anywhere.

  1. Provides Information

Packaging is a mouthpiece for your company, and it provides information to your customer about the basic properties of your product. When packing a product in good packaging, you should also write the information about the products on a packet.

Good packaging plays an important role in providing information about the product because anyone who wants to buy something firstly is attracted by the product’s physical appearance. Then they want to know what is inside the package and the main ingredients or any other usage information about the product. So, this information makes your consumer mind to buy the product.

  1. Protects the product.

The primary purpose of packaging is to protect the product at the time of transport, handling, and storage. Packaging retains the product intact throughout its logistics chain from manufacturer to the end-user. It protects the product from humidity, light, heat, and other external factors. When a product reaches the final consumer safely, people will like your brand since there will be no complaints.

  1. Environmental conservation.

Most people when purchasing these days, largely consider the environmental impact the product will bring. More and more consumers are paying attention to the packaging materials’ carbon footprint, reusability, and recyclability. In fact, the how sustainable packaging is perceived, the more positive impact it has on the sales numbers. The packaging design has a crucial role in defining how easy it is to separate the materials from each other and thus how easy the packaging is to reuse and recycle.

Consumers are increasingly conscious of the environmental impacts of their actions. They evaluate the carbon footprint of the packaging before buying a product. The labeling on the packaging which gives clear information on the products and packaging’s environmental impacts and recyclability will definitely catch the consumer’s eye positively.
