Cost Drivers

There has been a rising tendency of using recyclable packaging material. Recycled materials are comparatively difficult to work with for packaging design service providers. Therefore, the bill value for recyclable packaging is higher as compared to the traditional packaging material. In addition to this, the advancements in 3D printing and laser cutting are helping package design services providers provide better designs and therefore gain a higher ticket value. These technological advancements, help in increasing revenue per job. However, the initial cost of setup is high and therefore the return on such investments also needs to be high.


One of the major constraints that the market faces is its pricing scheme. Since the prevalent mode of pricing is value-based, a lot of it is based on perception rather than quantification. Hence, there might be a discrepancy between the offered value and the perceived value. There is also a lack of standardization in the pricing in the market. While there is some standardization in the hourly rates charged by the service providers, the perceived complexity of a project makes also needs to be taken into account to arrive at the total cost charged. This makes it difficult to standardize the prices for this market.
