  • This paper introduces the current status of total overseas packaging industries. The total market of the world packaging industry reached over 500 billion dollars in 2002. The top nations for the packaging industry were U.S. at about 27 percent, the countries of Western Europe at about 27%, Japan at about 14%. In terms of packaging materials, the overall market rate for paper, plastics, and metal parts in world packaging industry was 84%. Also, the market rate of glass, packaging machine, and others was only 5-6%. Among EU nations, Germany showed largest packaging consumption of 23 percent in 2000, and consumed about 17,125,814 ton of packaging materials yearly. For paper and paperboard cartons, the percentage used for the packaging consumption was about 39.4%. The consumption rate of plastic and glass packaging was approximately 14.6% and 23.7% respectively. For metal packaging the consumption rate was about 5.9%. In Japan, the production rate of packaging materials was decreased slowly at paper, metal, glass, and wood areas, but plastic packaging showed a constant rate of growth. In China, total production of packaging industry amounted to about 33.7 billion in 2003. The paper packaging in china was a remarkable production rate of 32%. The production rate of plastic and printing packaging was 28% and 20% respectively. The rate of packaging industry for printing in China was much higher than that in other countries.

  • Active packaging is one of the innovative concepts which actively change the condition of the packaged products. Active packaging technique controls the environment inside the packaging in order to extend the shelf life of the product and improve its quality or safety. Active packaging are based on major contents of scavenging concepts, releasing concepts, and other active packaging concepts such as removal or indicating systems. In recent years, experimental developments using active packaging concepts between polymeric packaging materials and the contact surfaces of food products are widely studied in order to make extensive commercial applications. Well-developed packaging markets in USA, Japan, and Europe are already being successfully applied in active packaging concepts. This paper reviews the concepts of active packaging and current information of active packaging technologies. The status of domestic technologies in active packaging were analyzed.

  • This study was conducted in 2005 to investigate the current status of total packaging industries in Korea. The trends in development of the packaging industry were observed and interpreted as several factors such as the number of packaging industries, the number of employee in packaging industries, size, employee salary, and locations of packaging industry. The number of companies showed the increase of 6.3% per year until 2002 compared to 2175 companies at packaging industry in 1991. Based on the data of the number of companies to produce packaging materials, the packaging companies for plastic, metal, and wood were rapidly increased up to over 9%, whereas the glass and paper companies were only increased in 2%. The number of paper, plastic, wood, and packaging machine companies located at Seoul in 2002 was showed the great reduction, except to glass company compared to the number of the packaging industries in 1993 according to location of the company. Value added per employee in total packaging material industries were showed about 53-thousand dollars in 2002. These values were showed about 64.5% for total manufacture industries and increased to 8.1% from 1991 to 2002.

  • Although the specification of packaging box is one of the most important process to be considered before deciding cost in terms of production and logistics, there are no efficient services in our country at this time as such the making decision only through the empirical knowledge. In this research, we have developed the packaging specification design system based on the web online packaging IT service. The developed system was advanced from the existing-inefficient process of deciding the specification of packaging box, and which can decide the specification of packaging box considering the efficiency of logistics through use of IT based tool. Therefore, this study shows applied cases of normalized packaging process through the obtained packaging design simulation program. The packaging specification design system can provide the simulation and user interface. Those could calculate the specification of packaging box(packaging box size, packaging box quantity, packaging box pattern, packaging compressive strength, packaging cost etc.) considering the efficiency of logistics.

  • This study were conducted to reveal the awareness and competitiveness of Korean packaging industry in information technology(IT) and e-commerce. For the survey, 114 sample companies were selected representing all packaging materials, equipment and systems, institutes, consulting and trading companies. The trained interviewers spoke to the respondents who were at the position of packaging research and development and were considered knowledgeable about the level of IT in the company. The collected data were analyze in three major categories: IT fundamentals, usages, and company policy. From the results, packaging suppliers were at the very low level of IT fundamentals and uses compared to those of packaging users. The gap between packaging suppliers and users that access the Internet was seriously wide, and this trend was generally due to different size of company. Packaging suppliers were still at the basic level of information-oriented working environment.

  • Today, the food packaging industry has a great interest in using active packaging to fresh food product as a solution for the future to positively provide its quality, safety and shelf life. Many researches have extensively studied functional packaging strategies in recently years. Controlled release packaging (CRP) is an innovative packaging technology in the packaging polymer matrix from which can active agents are delivered in a controlled way into the product. CRP technology is well-suited for controlling release of antimicrobial compounds and antioxidants to prevent food degradation reactions such as microbial growth and lipid oxidation. Advances in CRP technology allow food packaging manufacturers to challenge the development of better functional food packaging systems. This overview examines the most recent developments and technologies of active packaging for applying the food industry. The scope of this article has mainly been focused on controlled releasing systems.

  • This paper describes an overview of the packaging industry in Korea. Packaging plays an important role to connect the dot between primary and secondary industry. Moreover, it performs the visual merchandising of product, resulting in synergetic effect with quality of merchandise. As more convergence of primary and secondary industry accelerates, packaging industry became more competitive as well as critical area. Korea Packaging Center (KOPACK) in Korea Institute of Industrial Technology (KITECH) has conducted the national market survey of packaging industry since 2010, biannually. Firstly, Korea packaging industry was categorized. For defining the Korea packaging industry, Korea Standard Industry Code (KSIC) is used to divide the group into wood, paper, plastic, glass, metal and packaging machinery. Based on these categories, the market size was estimated with survey of 2,180 packaging companies. In this study, the results of this survey are summarized, and the key trends of each category are described.

  • This article delves into the current status of various packaging technologies, which are currently being applied or are under development for the shelf-life extension and quality improvement of fresh and processed meat products. Traditional packaging methods include vacuum packaging, modified atmosphere packaging, and air-permeable packaging. Recently, innovative packaging methods have been introduced that utilize technologies such as barrier-films, active packaging, nanotechnology, microperforated films, far-infrared radiations, and plasma treatment. All of these packaging methods have their own merits and drawbacks in terms of shelf-life and quality maintenance. A right choice of packaging system for fresh and processed meat products must be made in accordance with the conditions of the raw material, storage, and distribution in the market and household, and while considering the environmental sustainability and consumer's expectations.
