Key Highlights
Canada’s rising aging population and shrinking household size are driving the demand for smaller pack formats. The increasing immigrant population is creating a niche market segment for products of foreign origin, increasing the importance of packaging and labeling.

Manufacturers are increasingly opting for technology upgrades in an attempt to improve efficiency. For instance, the HyCAP injection moulding machine shortens the production time required for beverage closures.

Canadians are increasingly shopping online in an effort to make a purchase that is best suited to them. The rise in smartphone penetration has further driven the growth of online retailing in Canada, which will drive demand for secondary packaging.

With rising consumer awareness, product sustainability has become a major concern for manufacturers, driving innovation in the Canadian packaging industry. For instance, Coca-Cola has launched an eco-friendly sugarcane-based PET bottle.
