In its “Packaging trends for 2021,” Swindon-based Boxes and Packaging said it expected that the e-commerce sector would be a primary focus in 2021 and added that the current lockdown would no doubt drive growth even further in this sector.

The company said:

“It will continue to be the only method of shopping for a while, and we think that after such a prolonged period of online shopping some consumers will be reluctant to return to in-person purchasing.
“As such, the e-commerce sector will prosper across the entire platform, right from weekly groceries, essential products and luxury gifts.”
