There’s a revolution underway in retail, and it’s happening on store shelves. Gone are the days when basic packaging could cut it. In today’s hyper-competitive market, retail-ready packaging is not just an option; it’s a necessity. Let’s dive into what’s driving this packaging evolution.


First Impressions Last

Let’s face it: you don’t get a second chance at a first impression. Recent studies have indicated that 81% of consumers have tried something new solely because the packaging caught their eye. That’s a stat worth paying attention to.


Simple, intuitive design in retail-ready packaging enables consumers to identify the product quickly, speeding up the decision-making process right where it counts — the store shelf. It’s no surprise that 63% of consumers have repurchased a product due to its packaging appearance.

The Economics of Retail-Ready Packaging

Investing in retail-ready packaging isn’t just suitable for capturing consumer attention and efficiency for retailers. With easier shelf replenishment and optimized space usage, these packaging solutions save time and increase turnover.


This isn’t just about eye-catching design and logistics; it’s about sustainability, too. Retail-ready packaging is often easier to recycle and uses minimum material. So, while you’re capturing consumer attention, you’re also contributing to a healthier planet.

The Ripple Effect: Brand Switching and Loyalty

Pay attention because here’s where it gets even more interesting. Studies show that 52% of consumers have switched brands because of new packaging. Retail-ready packaging is more than just a pretty face — it’s essential for retaining consumer loyalty and driving brand switching.
