This means manufacturers should pay close attention to the packaging design they choose to represent their product. Here are some key points addressed through the packaging industry.

Smart packaging design helps target consumers by provoking an emotional attachment to a brand. Packaging design is capable of not only inspiring a purchase from the targeted consumer, but also creating a ripple effect that attracts new buyers.
