Packaging plays a vital role in protecting products across industries throughout supply chain and shelving processes. Electronic products such as light bulbs which are delicate in nature require specific packaging that can ensure protection from damage caused from stress and shocks. Bulb packaging not only protects light bulbs from physical damages but also is useful in providing information to the customer about the product and manufacturing company. The light bulb packaging provides information such as power demand, lumen intensity, and average life in hours, energy class, efficiency class, etc. Damage resistant packaging can reduce the chances of bulb getting damage, thus improving the fill rate of the suppliers. The light bulb is prone to losing its functionality during transit or while lying on the shelf, hence packaging manufacturers are supplying bulb packaging that are damage resistant, strong and possess top grade qualities.
The light bulb packaging market is directly related to the installed capacity in the world for lighting needs. The light bulbs installed are required to be changed after completion of their life cycle thus fuelling the light bulb packaging market. The global bulb packaging market now covers only LED light bulbs and CFL as incandescent bulbs are in phase of transitioning out of the market.
