Connected Packaging Solutions

With the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT), smart packaging has emerged as a viable medium to bridge the gap between the physical and digital worlds. According to SmithersPira, the global smart packaging market is estimated to grow at an annual rate of 7.5% to $7.8 billion by 2021. Advances in technology are allowing companies the ability to connect with customers in new and exciting ways to ensure product safety and traceability, protect their brands, promote their brands, and facilitate a more engaging user experience — whenever and wherever they are making purchasing decisions.

Diamond leads in the digital transformation of products. Connected packaging — through anti-diversion (AD) coding and serialization — supports Anti-Counterfeiting and Track and Trace initiatives. Interactive NFC smart tag technology enables brands to connect directly with consumers.
