Key Highlights
Shrinking household sizes and an increase in the older population is leading to an increase in demand for smaller sized, single-serve portion packs. Young consumers demand small sized packs for on-the-go consumption, while older consumers often opt for portion packs for controlled consumption.

Subsequent to the 2008 financial crisis, Australian consumers are looking to save more whilst cutting down on discretionary spending. Most consumers seek discounts and offers, and demand value for money products. This means that price and value additions such as enhanced convenience will become key differentiators in the Australian retail market and are areas where packaging will play a key role.

The changing composition of the immigrant population has led to the emergence of varied consumer segments with specific needs and preferences, such as Asians buying more curries and spices. Packaging plays a key role in the marketing of these products, as the immigrant population generally has a greater preference for products associated with their native cultures and cuisines.

Packaging companies have shown a strong inclination towards producing environmentally-friendly products, thereby reducing carbon footprints. For instance, Cadbury has redesigned its packaging to reduce carbon emissions by using 100% recyclable paper instead of metalized paper for its new packaging formats.

With an increasing number of women participating in the labor force and their lifestyles becoming busier, there is an increase in demand for convenient packaging and retail-ready pack formats. As a result, manufacturers are redesigning packaging to include convenient closures such as dispensers and flip/snap tops.
