Although it is known exactly what it is and where it is used, there is no covering name for the industry that produces packaging protection products. Although the market area of packaging protection products is growing day by day, unfortunately it does not have a special name. Users of the product, including industry employees, do not know what industry they are in. Industry producers, on the other hand, have started to find a suitable name for themselves. For this reason, a serious name inflation has occurred. Although the technologies are different, it is important for the independent growth of the sector that the products produced for the same purpose have a general name. In this article, this industry, which produces packaging protection and support products, is researched and introduced. Thanks to the investigations, a name has been suggested for this gigantic industry, which has not yet been named. The proposed name is intended to be inclusive, descriptive, easy to pronounce, high affective perception and a source of pride for its employees. These two concepts are used in the same meaning by all people, from academic persons to sector workers. However, this study explains how these two concepts differ from each other. In the discussion part of the article, it is explained that the concept of packaging is the sector that produces packaging protection products. Due to the confusion of these two concepts, it has been determined that the packaging industry does not have a name. With this article, not only the definition of the packaging protection products industry has been made, but it has been tried to be given the respect it deserves. In this sense, this research has been the voice of a sectoral outcry.
