logoMarket Overview

Corrugated boxes are one of the most widely used secondary packaging solutions in a variety of industries. Because packaging cartons are both practical and convenient, they have become a popular choice for the packaging of a wide range of products in industries such as food, beverages, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals. In recent years, the e-commerce industry has experienced rapid growth. The growing purchasing power of consumers, as well as the increased use of mobile shopping, has fueled online shopping. Corrugated crates and cardboard packaging are available in a wide range of sizes, allowing for the packaging of small items such as pharmaceuticals or personal care products to large items such as electronics or furniture. The growing trend of purchasing products through e-commerce platforms, as well as the increasing number of players entering the e-commerce industry, are expected to drive sales in the corrugated boxes market.

Increased sales of kraft boxes, driven by increased demand for environmentally friendly packaging solutions, are expected to provide growth opportunities in the coming years. In addition, some of the market's leading players are expected to offer custom corrugated boxes, such as paper packaging solutions, to replace plastic packaging alternatives. The shift in consumer preference toward paper packaging is expected to increase demand for corrugated boxes in the near future. The global personal care and cosmetics industry has expanded significantly in recent years. The rising consciousness of consumers regarding appearance is a major driver of growth. One of the factors positively influencing personal grooming is the growing importance of hair and skin care among the millennial population.

logoSegmentation Analysis

The global Corrugated Packaging market is segregated based on product type, packaging type, and end-use.

While the food and beverage sector is expected to be the largest consumer of corrugated packaging throughout the forecast period, E-commerce has been identified as the most opportunistic application area for corrugated packaging stakeholders. The electrical and electronics end-use segment is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period, owing to increased shipments of consumer electronics products such as tablets, smartphones, laptop computers, and flat-screen televisions.

The segment with the highest revenue share was the single-wall board style. It can be used as an extra layer of protection, as a divider, pad, or partition inside the outer packaging. These types of board styles allow for easy printing, as well as the application of various coatings to their surface. It lightens the weight of the boxes, lowering shipping costs. As a result, the segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. Single-face boards are also used as an inner packaging material in order to keep individual items separate in outer packaging and to provide additional protection to the packaged goods.
