Posted 02 Jul 2020 by Harsh Gupta, Regional GM, India

According to the National Investment Promotion & Facilitation Agency India, the India retail market will likely cross USD 1.7 trillion in the coming years. In India, rapidly expanding mass retail and club stores will drive the demand for the retail-ready market, as these stores carry a limited product selection compared to their traditional counterparts. Adding to this, the increasing disposable income among the middle-class income group, fast-paced lifestyle and increasing consumption of packaged food is expected to drive growth in the retail-ready packaging market.

Retail-ready packaging (RRP) provides a major opportunity for retailers to improve supply chain efficiencies and generate sales at the point of purchase. It results in cleaner stores for customers, fewer gaps on the shelves, and can trigger impulse purchases. RRP doesn’t just benefit retailers; the simplified transition process from warehouse to shelf means better in-stock availability for suppliers. Using RRP also enhances suppliers’ positioning and visibility at the store level, thus increasing the chance for sales. On the consumer side, RRP helps make the shelf-to-shopping-cart transition easier, enhancing the shopping experience.
