Subject: Organizational Behavior | Topics:

Executive Summary

International’s Packaging Industry report offers a comprehensive guide to the size and shape of the market at a national level. It provides historic market size data by industry, allowing you to identify the most popular pack types. It identifies the leading companies, and offers strategic analysis of key factors influencing the market- be they new product developments, recycling or legislation issues. Forecasts illustrate how the market is set to change. The rise in organized retailing in Bangladesh second-tier cities made for a competitive packaging market in 2006. Companies like Cosmos Packaging, Nestlé Bangladesh Ltd, Coca-Cola Bangladesh Ltd, PepsiCo Bangladesh Ltd and  became very aggressive during the review period, and packaging became a big tool for launching new, Bangladesh-specific products in different shapes and sizes.

The review period witnessed a flux of partnerships and joint ventures, with many foreign packaging players entering the scene to gain a slice of the large pie. Environmental concerns are fast catching the attention of all the stake holders in the Indian packaging industry. The expansion of packaging as a profitable industry in Bangladesh, dragged along by that of the retail and FMCG sectors, has brought with it environmental concerns Due to lower manufacturing costs, Bangladesh is fast becoming a preferred hub for packaging production. The Bangladesh packaging industry has made a mark with its exports that comprise flattened cans, printed sheets and components, crown cork, lug caps, plastic film laminates, craft paper, paper board and packaging machinery, while the imports include tinplate, lacquers, coating and lining compounds.

In Bangladesh, the fastest growing packaging segments are laminates and flexible packaging, especially PET and woven sacks. On the global scene ruled by the World Trade Organization, it is imperative for Bangladesh to upgrade its packaging standards through innovative technologies in order to be on a par with the world’s best practice. Packaging labels must inform consumers about the ingredients of the product, the nutritional value, and the manufacturing and expiry dates of the products; something which is being made mandatory by the government. Almost all the major players were seen to expand their existing capabilities to tap into the fast growing export market for Bangladesh packaging products.

  Training materials available at the BGMEA.

  Various books articles, compilations etc. regarding marketing of financial products are informed below:

  Office circular and other published papers,

 Website of the CPwww. cosmospackages.com.bd

Limitation of the research

  • I have encountered some problems- the time of the internship was only eight weeks. In this short time, it is not possible to the dept analysis.
  • Experience of this research is the major limitation. It is very tough for researcher to conduct the research properly.
  • Some information’s are not disclosed due to strategic reasons.
  • The senior officials and executives, who I interviewed, could only give me a fraction of their time since they were extremely busy. Thus, I could not go into every detail of the matter. I emphasized on the major issues, I thought as significant in the preparation of the term paper.
  • The study will use the information-collected form the concerned entities.  All the comparisons will be based on that. There is no scope for verifying the credentials of this information. In addition, the study will focus only the financial aspect of the organization, leaving other areas out.

Background of the Garment Packaging Industry in Bangladesh

About 20 years ago when the principal export of Bangladesh was jute, there were 21 units producing readymade garments and earning 3.5 million, by 2005. When jute and jute made goods accounted for about 3% of export. Garment packaging is attached with garments. At the early stage of garment industries the garment packaging materials were imported from Hong Kong, Taiwan and China industry. The phenomenal growth of the readymade garment is completely attached with packaging sector and it’s growth and it’s a major success story of export oriented activities, give a substantial boost to the domestic manufacturing and export, while creating direct and indirect employment and investment opportunities in backward and forward linked activities. The industry is estimated to employ 0.8 million direct workers, where 0.2 million in the waste recycle industries.

Not with standing the fact that is sectors emergence and expansion is the direct out come of the Multi-Fiver Agreement (MFA) regime, there is no denying that it has had a stellar impact on the overall economic growth, income generation and poverty reduction in Bangladesh.

Packaging is the science, art and technology of enclosing or protecting products for distribution, storage, sale, and use. Packaging also refers to the process of design, evaluation, and production of packages. Packaging can be described as a coordinated system of preparing goods for transport, warehousing, logistics, sale, and end use. Packaging contains, protects, preserves, transports, informs, and sells. In many countries it is fully integrated into government, business, and institutional, industrial, and personal use.

Symbols used on packages and labels

Many types of symbols for package labeling are nationally and internationally standardized. For consumer packaging, symbols exist for product certifications, trademarks, proof of purchase, etc. Some requirements and symbols exist to communicate aspects of consumer use and safety. Examples of environmental and recycling symbols include: Recycling symbol, Resin identification code (below), and Green Dot (symbol).

The modern world eager to look for in packaging.

Corrugated packaging is:

  • Economic
  • Versatile
  • Strong
  • Hygienic
  • Environmentally sound

The world is changing and the most successful companies will be those that best understand the new conditions for business. Partnership will become essential practice as organizations pool specialized skills and knowledge to gain competitive advantage.

This is something the corrugated packaging industry has long realized. It offers complete packaging solutions based on new and innovative products and processes, and companies are entering joint partnership arrangements to build specialized packaging plant.

Major investment in new technology and manufacturing plant is achieving new operating economies, which the industry passes on to its customers. Technology advances are complemented by 100 years’ experience of solving problems. A vast programmed of research and development is leading to more economic products and more responsive customer service.

Whether you need to improve food preservation, protect electronic devices, or find more economic ways to distribute and store products, the corrugated packaging industry continues to discover new and surprising answers.

Distributing the Benefits of Corrugated Packaging

Whether for heavy industrial components, or a take-away meal, corrugated packaging meets the need. The industry is constantly developing ways to streamline customer processes – transportation, stacking, storing, unpacking and even displaying goods using ingenious pieces of corrugated engineering.

In recent times, capabilities throughout the distribution chain have changed almost beyond recognition. At one end, high-street multiples offer customers a level of service and choice undreamed of twenty years ago. Fitted-furniture retailers, DIY superstores and garden centers deliver bulk products direct to consumers.

Computer-controlled logistics have revolutionized the home delivery business of mail order companies. At the other end of the distribution chain, corrugated packaging now handles heavy industrial products or wet substances more effectively thanks to advances in engineering design and to surface treatments that prevent saturation or leaching.

The packaging industry is focused on the distribution issues of the future, such as the development of intelligent packaging that is instantly identifiable, along with agreed standards for the sizes of the boxes, trays and other packaging to make products easy to stack, store and unpack. It is also introducing customer-led services supported by Just-in-Time and Efficient Consumer Response systems.

And may other types of garment bags…

Micro Flutes Bring Macro Benefits

The newer micro flutes are replacing carton board in a variety of applications. Since corrugated is stronger, packs are strong enough to go onto pallets and then straight onto shelves from where they can be conveniently carried home by customers who take the packaging with them.

High Quality Post Print (HQPP)

The latest technological developments have made high quality printing a practical proposition for extending brand images to transit packaging. Leading corrugated case manufacturers are able to offer low-cost, short print runs for special promotions. Now more information such as the use-by-date can be put into bar codes and adjusted more frequently. Other information such as assembly instructions can be printed on the box. Some manufacturers are already exploring other encryption possibilities such as secreting information in the glue or the board or adding smart chips. Improved identification of products assists with proof of ownership or to support issues of due diligence.

 Food packaging

Sterile packages, bags, boxes, cans, cartons, flexible packaging, Pallets, wrappers etc. Sterile packaging is necessary for food products like eggs, bags are used for product like potato, boxes are normally used for products like soft drinks, cans can be used for product like tomato soup, cartons can be used for eggs, pallet and wrappers are primarily used for transportation purposes.

Rag paper

Should contain a substantial proportion of cotton if bras and is used in high quality papers and handmade paper. Special coatings are used to provide grease, alkali or acid resistance or to reduce the transmission of moisture. Sometimes the coating is single sided, for example a soap wrapper that may have one side treated as an alkali resist and the other prepared to receive the printed image. Used for food wrappings, to

Wrap scented or greasy products.

Tissue Soft

 Is an example of a hygienic paper made from virgin wood pulp and/or recycled paper of good quality – it contains no sizing and is absorbent. It is the modern replacement for the old, rather harsh type of toilet paper. It is made on enormous and very fast running paper machines and is similar to papers made for facial tissues, napkins, paper handkerchiefs etc, or, in a slightly heavier weight, for paper towels. Tracing paper is a transparent paper produced from very short, specially prepared if bras. The shortness of the if bras means that they do not overlap, as in the normal paper making process, and have to be ‘held together’ with binders and other materials.

Wove Paper

is produced using a plain, woven ‘dandy roll’ and therefore not displaying ‘laid lines’ – as distinct from laid paper. It is used as a general purpose paper and commonly used for business and domestic stationery.

Ordinary Grades Paper

These papers tend to contain a substantial amount of short if bras. Subcategories include mixed paper and board, grey board, mixed newspapers and magazines, corrugated paper and board, and sorted graphic paper for de-inking;

Medium grades paper

This category contains unsold newspapers free from inserts, printed white shavings, sorted office paper, colored letters, white books, colored magazines, as well as continuous computer printout paper;

High grades paper

Predominantly white papers made from virgin if bras. Subcategories include mixed lightly colored printer shavings, binders, letters, and white business forms, white Computer print-out printed multiply board, white shavings and unbleached board;

Garment Hangers

Available in a wide variety of shapes, thickness, colors and designs, Plastic Hangers have become increasingly popular with garment manufacturers and exporters. The competitive price and high quality of these hangers have played a significant role in the popularity that they currently enjoy in local, regional and international markets.

Desired Logo/Brand Name and/or/personalized plastic plaques can be provided on the mast head of the hanger which becomes a perpetual source of publicity for your Brand Name. The hanger can be manufactured from different material to provide the end user with an outstanding product. We can provide hangers as per customer’s design.

They are available in various colors, sizes, and thickness which can be changed according to the client’s requirements. Our garment hanger is made from superior grade, which provides them a high quality as well as longer life.

 Packaging and labeling

A sealed pack of diced pork from Tesco. It shows the cooking time, number of servings, ‘display until’ date, ‘use by’ date, weight in kg, price, price to weight ratio in both £/kg and £/lb, freezing and storage instructions. It says ‘Less than 3% Fat’ and ‘No Carbs per serving’ and includes a barcode. The Union Flag, British Farm Standard tractor logo, and British Meat Quality Standard logo are also present.

Symbols used on packages and labels

Many types of symbols for package labeling are nationally and internationally standardized. For consumer packaging, symbols exist for product certifications, trademarks, proof of purchase, etc. Some requirements and symbols exist to communicate aspects of consumer use and safety. Examples of environmental and recycling symbols include: Recycling symbol, Resin identification code (below), and Green Dot (symbol).

Price Tag

Price tags on clothing should be easy for shoppers to find so they don’t have to ask employees about purchase price. A shopper may abandon an article if they can’t easily find its price. Use a price tag attachés to put tags on clothes in conspicuous locations so shoppers of retail or private sales can notice them right away. A tag attaches slips a small barrel on a plastic thread barb through a tubular needle made for piercing fabric and card stock tags. The barb has a larger tab on the other end of the thread to keep the tag from falling off.

 Hang tag

Hang tag is a tag attached to a piece of merchandise giving information about its composition and proper care and use. We believe that tags with custom made printing are a vital part of the merchandise and branding. It might be a subtler way to market the product but hangtag communicates the information of the merchandise distinctly. Not any piece of tag will suffice. We manufacture and supply originally crafted hangtag designs and products that add value to your merchandise and provides concise information to the buyer.

 Polyethylene Terephthalate (PETE)

Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET or PETE) is clear, tough and has good gas and moisture barrier properties making it ideal for carbonated beverage applications and other food containers. The fact that it has high use temperature allows it to be used in applications such as hearable pre-prepared food trays. Its heat resistance and microwave transparency make it an ideal hearable film. It also finds applications in such diverse end uses as fibers for clothing and carpets, bottles, food containers, strapping, and engineering plastics for precision-molded parts.

High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)

High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is used for many packaging applications because it provides excellent moisture barrier properties and chemical resistance. However, HDPE, like all types of polyethylene, is limited to those food packaging applications that do not require an oxygen or CO2 barrier. In film form, HDPE is used in snack food packages and cereal box liners; in blow-molded bottle form, for milk and non-carbonated beverage bottles; and in injection-molded tub form, for packaging margarine, whipped toppings and deli foods. Because HDPE has good chemical resistance, it is used for packaging many household as well as industrial chemicals.

Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)

Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) has excellent transparency, chemical resistance, long term stability, good weather ability and stable electrical properties. Vinyl products can be broadly divided into rigid and flexible materials. Rigid applications are concentrated in construction markets, which include pipe and fittings, siding, rigid flooring and windows. PVC’s success in pipe and fittings can be attributed to its resistance to most chemicals, imperviousness to attack by bacteria or micro-organisms, corrosion resistance and strength. Flexible vinyl is used in wire and cable sheathing, insulation, film and sheet, flexible floor coverings, synthetic leather products, coatings, blood bags, and medical tubing.

Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE)

Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is predominantly used in film applications due to its toughness, flexibility and transparency. LDPE has a low melting point making it popular for use in applications where heat sealing is necessary. Typically, LDPE is used to manufacture flexible films such as those used for dry cleaned garment bags and produce bags. LDPE is also used to manufacture some flexible lids and bottles, and it is widely used in wire and cable applications for its stable electrical properties and processing characteristics.

 Polypropylene (PP)

Polypropylene (PP) has excellent chemical resistance and is commonly used in packaging. It has a high melting point, making it ideal for hot fill liquids. Polypropylene is found in everything from flexible and rigid packaging to fibers for fabrics and carpets and large molded parts for automotive and consumer products. Like other plastics, polypropylene has excellent resistance to water and to salt and acid solutions that are destructive to metals. Typical applications include ketchup bottles, yogurt containers, medicine bottles, pancake syrup bottles and automobile battery casings.

 Second-tier cities become centre of packaging activity of CP.

The rise in organized retailing second-tier cities made for a competitive packaging market in 2008. Companies like Hindustan Unilever Ltd, Procter & Gamble Ltd, Nestlé India Ltd, ITC Ltd, Coca-Cola Ltd, PepsiCo Ltd and Dabur Ltd became very aggressive during the review period, and packaging became a big tool for launching new, specific products in different shapes and sizes. The review period witnessed a flux of partnerships and joint ventures, with many foreign packaging players entering the scene to gain a slice of the large pie

 Environmental Concerns Continue To Hamper Polymer-Based Packaging Growth

 Environmental concerns are fast catching the attention of all the stake holders in the Indian packaging industry. The expansion of packaging as a profitable industry in India, dragged along by that of the retail and FMCG sectors, has brought with it environmental concerns. Organizations such as the Centre for Plastics in the Environment were actively seen promoting awareness in this regard in order to promote the packaging industry and make people aware of the real concerns about the environment.

Cost Advantages Make a Preferred Packaging of CP

Due to lower manufacturing costs, Bangladesh is fast becoming a preferred hub for packaging production. The CP packaging has made a mark with its exports that comprise flattened cans, printed sheets and components, crown cork, lug caps, plastic film laminates, craft paper, paper board and packaging machinery, while the imports include tinplate, lacquers, coating and lining compounds. In India, the fastest growing packaging segments are laminates and flexible packaging, especially PET and woven sacks. On the global scene ruled by the World Trade Organization, it is imperative for India to upgrade its packaging standards through innovative technologies in order to be on a par with the world’s best practice. Packaging labels must inform consumers about the ingredients of the product, the nutritional value, and the manufacturing and expiry dates of the products; something which is being made mandatory by the government. Almost all the major players were seen to expand their existing capabilities to tap into the fast growing export market for Indian packaging products.

Inflation and High Oil Prices Eating In To the Margins of Packaging Companies

Many flexible and paper-based packaging manufacturers experienced difficulties relating to the rise in the cost of paper as well as high oil prices during the first half of 2008. The rising costs of paper reduced the margins of industry players. The Indian government announced a cut in the excise duty imposed on the finished goods from 12% to 8% in 2008, yet this was not sufficient saving for the industry that was badly reeling from the high production costs. The government, in the budget, reduced the excise duty on paper mills from 12% to 8%, which the paper manufacturers did not pass on to the customers. High oil prices during the first half of the year affected the businesses of polymer-based packaging providers who also found it tough to survive in the market.

 Management policies involved in CP packaging research

Some of the key management policies, normally considered while doing CP package research are value chain management, life cycle management etc. Packaging industry research is becoming more pro-active and are emphasizing on issues like reusing, recycling, recovering and disposal of packaging materials. Recycling is one of the most vital areas where lots of research works are going on.

Major Areas of Research in CP Packaging

Major areas of research in the CP packaging include strategic research, applied research and fundamental research.

  • Strategic research focuses on new ideas and innovations in the sphere of package. The target of strategic research is to implement new innovative packaging techniques for the future packaging.
  • Applied research is generally targeted to specific problems regarding use and distribution of packaged products.
  • Fundamental research is primarily concerned with packaging research activities through modern technologies. The primary focus of fundamental research is on interpreting material and packaging system behavior and thereby establishes strong connection between packaging materials and products.

 Corrugated Carton Board and Carton board of CP

Corrugated board is made largely of recycled paper and most commonly comprises three components: an outer and inner “liner” and a “corrugating medium” the “fluting” which is glued between the liners it is this sandwich-type construction that gives corrugated board its excellent rigidity and structural strength as well as its unique cushioning characteristics.

Over the decades, corrugated board has evolved and developed to provide a wide range of products for different applications. Standard and non-standard categories of corrugated board are based on the type of flute, whether coarse, fine or extra fine and the number of fluted walls whether single, double or triple layered.

Single face corrugated board is manufactured in standard widths ranging from 56” to 36”.  It is easily transported in rolls.  Its ability to withstand compression is determined by the quality and thickness of the liner and the corrugating medium.

If transport is not a constraint, you may wish to consider procuring single or double wall corrugated board, making sure that you get the best possible quality in terms of strengths as discussed above Single and double-wall corrugated boards are classified as detailed in the Table below and offer additional resistance to compression. The choice between the various media will depend on their availability or readiness of manufacturers to produce them according to the desired specifications and to the transport facilities available to you to haul the material to where the model will be assembled. Rolls of board are easier to transport, as they can easily fit into the back of a pick up. Large carton board sheets are necessarily placed on the roof of a vehicle or in a truck you may want to get for the purpose.
