Shaping the Future of the Packaging Industry with "Intelligence, Digitalization, Personalization" Smart Packaging Zone will Make its Debut at swop 2022
As Chinese industrial companies are driving digital transformation to usher in an era of Industry 4.0, the smart manufacturing industry has become one of the major driving forces framing the manufacturing industry in China. It is stated in the strategic plan, Made in China 2025, that "smart manufacturing is at the core of a new technological revolution, leading to new developments in digitization, networking and intelligence in the manufacturing industry". This makes "smart packaging" a hot topic in the packaging industry, leading to the development of new potential for the industry.
The global smart packaging market is expected to grow by about 8%. The scale of the smart packaging market in China is expected to exceed RMB 200 billion by 2023. With the advent of the Internet of Things era in China, smart packaging has become an irreversible trend in food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and other terminal areas. The Shanghai World of Packaging (swop) will be held at the Shanghai New International Expo Center on November 14-16, 2022. The Smart Packaging Zone will make its debut at swop 2022. This area will showcase smart packaging of functional materials, structural intelligent packaging and information-based smart packaging as well as the related technical applications.
Advance the packaging digitalization and intelligence to build modern smart factories
With the emergence of a new development pattern of "domestic-international dual circulation", it brings both new opportunities and challenges to the packaging industry for its digitalization and intelligence. Increasingly more flexible packaging manufacturers have begun to have a deeper understanding of the concept of smart factories and put more importance on intelligence and digital transformation and upgrading.
Smart manufacturing represents the future direction of the modern industry, but is also a weak link in the current development of the packaging industry. The packaging industry needs to urgently advance digital empowerment, accelerate innovation and R&D of smart packaging equipment, and transform industrial production into a new form of industry with good quality, excellent experience and high value. Building smart workshops and smart factories is a natural choice to accelerate the transformation and upgrading of packaging companies and create competitive advantages.
The IOT Era - new opportunities for innovation and development in the packaging industry
The Internet of Things (IoT) is an important component of the new generation of information technology. It’s also an important development stage in the " informatization" era. With intelligent perception, identification technology, and pervasive computing, IoT is widely used in the integration of networks. It is considered the world's third wave of the information industry after the inventions of the computer and the internet. The packaging material industry is one of the key areas for the IoT signage industry to develop cooperation. With the development of IoT, we have witnessed an increasing demand for and a growing importance of smart packaging, which in turn has brought a new opportunity for the innovative development of the packaging industry.
"Product Coding" shapes the future of smart manufacturing and increases the individualized requirements of the terminal industry market
"Product Coding" is a technology that uses the cloud platform to connect consumers, companies, and circulation, with an aim to provide comprehensive O2O marketing, anti-counterfeiting traceability, storage and logistics solutions. The demand for "Product Coding" is rapidly increasing in the food, pharmaceutical, medical device UDI, daily chemical, industrial internet, industrial products and other markets. Using smart packaging based on "Product Coding" technology to print variable QR codes on product packaging can give each product a unique "identification", thus bringing considerable benefits to the food, beverage, daily chemical, pharmaceutical and other industries.
The Shanghai World of Packaging (swop) will be held at the Shanghai New International Expo Center on November 14-16, 2022. swop will set up an Internet Marketing Union (IMU) Zone in Hall W3. Companies in the IoT signage industry will actively participate in the exhibition. The IMU members, headed by Hefei Yougao Internet of Things Identification Equipment Co., Ltd., will bring their solution for "Product Coding" in the 2.0 era to the site. Meanwhile, HPRT, Woojamark Technology, Weiqian, EasyJet, Qiduo and other exhibitors have confirmed their participation!
