The category covers packaging for clothing and textile, toys and games, do it yourself (DIY) and tools, electronics and appliances, households and laundry, stationary and cards, decoration.

Within the home & office categories - with few exceptions, the packaging transformation is tremendous primary driven by the raise of e-commerce as sales channels and by the new sustainability requirements. The role of the packaging in each of the segments and the associated trends should be reviewed at the segment level.
