What is packaging?
The definitions of ‘packaging’ vary and range from being simple and functionally focused to more extensive, holistic interpretations. Packaging can be defined quite simply as an extrinsic element of the product (Olson and Jacoby (1972)) - an attribute that is related to the product but does not form part of the physical product itself. “Packaging is the container for a product – encompassing the physical appearance of the container and including the design, color, shape, labeling and materials used” (Arens,1996).

Objectives of packaging
Packaging and package labeling have several objectives: • Physical Protection – Protection of the objects enclosed in the package from shock, vibration, compression, temperature, etc. • Barrier Protection - A barrier from oxygen, water vapor, dust, etc. • Containment or Agglomeration - Small objects are typically grouped together one package for transport and handling efficiency. Alternatively, bulk Commodities (such as salt) can be divided into packages that are a more suitable Size for individual households. • Information transmission - Information on how to use, transport, recycle, or

Dispose of the package or product is often contained on the package or label. • Reducing theft - Packaging that cannot be re-closed or gets physically damaged (Shows signs of opening) is helpful in the prevention of theft. Packages also Provide opportunities to include anti-theft devices. • Convenience - features which add convenience in distribution, handling, display, Sale, opening, re-closing, use, and re-use.

• Marketing - The packaging and labels can be used by marketers to encourage Potential buyers to purchase the product. Packaging may be looked at as several different types. For example a transport package or distribution package can be the shipping container used to ship, store, and handle the product or inner packages. Some identify a consumer package as one which is directed toward a consumer or household. Packaging may be discussed in relation to the type of product being packaged: medical device packaging, bulk chemical packaging, over-the-counter drug packaging, retail food packaging, military materiel packaging, pharmaceutical packaging, etc.

For this purpose main package’s elements could be identified: graphic.  Appropriate and vivid picture or packaging color which delivers them a happy feeling. All these elements contribute each important effort to catch consumers’ attention and interest. package elements having the ultimate effect on consumer choice in a case of different products from group of convenience goods were determined:  It has revealed that elements of package are the most important for consumer’s purchase decision. and material of packaging are considered.  The impact of package and its elements on consumer’s purchase decision can be revealed by analyzing an importance of its separate elements for consumer’s choice. we think that a good combination of those elements may let the product more eye-catching and attractive. time pressure or individual characteristics of consumers. the impact of package elements on consumers purchase decisions should be evaluated depending on the consumer’s involvement level.Page | 82  Package could be treated as one of most valuable tool in today’s marketing communications. color. necessitating more detail analysis of its elements and an impact of those elements on consumers buying behavior. size. producer. innovation while product information. country-oforigin and brand are considered as important ones.

I found out that most consumers like the product quality after they purchased their desired packaged products. Aspects such as packaging color. and can set a brand apart from its competitors.  According to my research. Often the packaging is perceived to be part of the product and it can be difficult for consumers to separate the two (the concept of gestalt). but also every time the product is used.  Research into packaging has found that different packaging cues impact how a product is perceived.  Packaging has a better reach than advertising does. but there is a positive thinking and trend about well- Role Of Packaging On Consumer Buying Behavior .Page | 83 visual elements. Packaging in different serving sizes can extend a product into new target markets or help to overcome cost barriers. typography.  Results of analyzing the impact of package elements on consumers purchase decisions depending on level of involvement correspond with those of theoretical studies and let us stating that visual elements of package have relatively stronger influence on consumer’s purchasing when they are in the level of “low involvement”. illustrations and graphics can influence how a product is perceived. Based on those facts. Packaging can even drive the brand choice (especially in the context of children’s products). while product information is also the main verbal elements when purchasing milk and washing-powder. in opposite to those who are in the level of “high involvement”. we can not say there is a 100% equal relationship between good package and good product quality. It promotes and reinforces the purchase decision not only at the point of purchase.

 All the marketing units pay attention for good packaging. new product introduction. there is no doubt about increasingly important role of packaging as a strategic tool to attract consumers’ attention and their perception on the product quality. market segmentation. It is necessary to Role Of Packaging On Consumer Buying Behavior . Brand name using plan implementation must be effective in the units.

As a matter of fact. people are becoming more and more demanding. With its different functionality to ease and to communicate with consumers.

It must also be more useful technically. The information given in the label and its value have to be highlighted while promoting the product in the market. individual characteristics of consumers. Further more they believe that the consumers are properly guided by label to use the products. it could be stated that detail evaluation of package elements and their impact on consumer’s purchase decision. the choices of packaging colors are quite different between the West and Far East. is necessary in order to implement efficient packaging decisions. Thus. where it was made. we think that it is important for international companies to take a consideration of culture differences when they design the product package.  I do believe that culture difference does have an impact on companies’ initiatives to design the product package. Areas of future research Suggested areas for future research include a more in-depth analysis into the relationship Role Of Packaging On Consumer Buying Behavior . Basically they describe that made it. during our research.
