Corrugated Packaging Market Definition
Corrugated is a high performance packaging material made to pack, protect, and market products. The liner and the medium are the two primary parts of corrugated fiberboard, sometimes known as combined board. Both are constructed from containerboard, a distinct and thick type of paper. Linerboard is the flat surface that clings to the medium and is normally found on the board's exterior surfaces, though it may also be found inside some constructions. The paper that is cut into arches or flutes and sandwiched between the linerboard facings is known as the medium.

Trends
Five key trends changing the future of the corrugated packaging market

  1. E commerce: In 2023, it is anticipated that global internet sales would exceed $5.5 trillion. Given that 80% of the demand for packaging in e-commerce is for corrugated products, this will have a significant effect on demand for packaging.

  2. Fit to product: Fit-to-product (FtP) or box-on-demand delivery systems have emerged as a result of e-commerce, mostly in response to the demands of devoted e-commerce vendors like Amazon and Staples. From its BoD systems and corrugated fanfold, along with its equity position in Panotec and its sole right to distribute Panotec's equipment in the US and Canada, the Michigan-based company obtains 70% of its sales.

  3. Sustainability:As sustainability becomes a more critical concern throughout the value chain, corrugated board is proving to be popular in packaging since it is simple to recycle and the pulp and paper sector is already skilled at converting it into new generations of containerboard. Western Europe, where box weights currently frequently hover around 80% of US weights, has had significant success with lightweighting. Over the next few years, businesses' efforts to cut costs while still appealing to customers will highlight the significance of lightweighting.

  4. Retail changes: Retail-ready packaging has proven to be a significant cost-saving tool for merchants, particularly in Western Europe. More retail ready formats are being used as a labour-saving measure as a result of the continued profit pressure, as it is predicted that these secondary packaging formats can save shelf replenishment and handling expenses by up to 50%.

  5. Digital printing advancements: The corrugated industry has grown increasingly interested in adopting the technique as the digital print market matures; as a result, solutions are currently being created to meet the needs of the high-volume lining and post-print industries.

Market Overview
A business worth $33.1 billion annually, corrugated packaging and displays are essential to American distribution networks. It is the most commonly used shipping material because it is economical, lightweight, practical, and adaptable. In order to deliver food, clothing, and durable items to millions of domestic and international clients, almost 38 billion shipments were sent and carefully packaged. Around 100,000 people work in over 1,154 corrugated manufacturing sites spread across roughly 1,000 American cities and towns.
The packaging sector, particularly that of corrugated boxes, is evolving from a cottage business to a planned, massive, automated setup to serve a range of sectors. In turn, this increased the need for ERP for the packaging industry, such as Corrugated Samadhan ERP built on Microsoft Dynamics Nav or Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. It must fulfil demands for far better goods and services, as well as pressure on costs and adherence to strict environmental and safety regulations.
Segmentation
Based on Liner

  • Kraft Liners

At least 70 to 80% of the fibre in Kraft liners is made of virgin chemical pulp. They have a finished surface, are very stiff and strong, and are regarded as the highest material grade.

  • Test Liners

Given that Kraft liners contain more recycled fibre, their strength is slightly higher than that of test liners.

  • Chip Liners

Chip liners are not as popular as Kraft or Brown Test liners. They are not as high-quality because they are primarily created from unregulated recycled materials.
Based on Material Outlook

  • Virgin

  • Recycled -> In terms of revenue share in 2021, the recycled segment dominated.

Based on Printing Technique Outlook

  • Digital Printing

  • Lithography

  • Flexography ->In terms of revenue share in 2021, flexography ranked first.

  • Others

Based on End-Use

  • Food & Beverage ->In terms of sales share, the food and beverage industry led in 2021.

  • Pharmaceuticals

  • Personal Care

  • Home Décor & Electronics

  • Paper Products

  • Others

Restraints
Extreme weather conditions can readily affect corrugated packaging. Manufacturers must invest more time in drying corrugated boxes when humidity and moisture levels are high. Because businesses want to complete this process more quickly, the glue or ink might not completely dry, giving the cardboard a flimsier appearance, much like how a sponge retains water and moisture. Conversely, when cardboard is kept in excessively dry conditions for a long time, the lack of moisture makes the cardboard act like a sponge that has been entirely dried out. Extreme rigidity and fragility set in, making it more challenging to fold a box without damaging the paper. These elements might to some extent limit the market's ability to increase its revenue.

Mondi plc, DS Smith plc, The International Paper Company, Georgia Pacific LLC, Oji Holdings Corporation, The Smurfit Kappa Group plc, WestRock Company, Pactiv Evergreen Inc., Tat Seng Packaging Group Ltd., and Packaging Corporation of America are major key players of the Corrugated Packaging Market.

Market Drivers
Corrugated packing increases productivity, decreases freight and handling expenses, and frequently cubes out a truckload prior to weighing out. Single-use corrugated packaging also lessens the spread of dangerous pathogens from one shipment to another.
Food and beverage products are protected by corrugated packaging because it is sturdy and long-lasting, especially when it is used to transport them over long distances and handle them by numerous workers. Additionally, corrugated boxes offer the option of customisation, allowing for "right-sized" product packaging. Since customised branding is an excellent strategy to impress customers, customization aids in the creation of brand awareness and customers frequently feel impressed because it looks professional and implies business.
Corrugated packaging firms frequently leverage developing technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). Industrial applications for 3D printing are expanding. AI has the potential to visualise a package created by an algorithm that is perfect for a particular product. Machines with AI require 20% less time to learn new information than do humans.
Regional Analysis

  • North America includes the United States, Canada and Mexico

  • Europe includes Germany, France, UK, Italy and Spain

  • South America includes Colombia, Argentina, Nigeria and Chile

  • Asia-Pacific includes Japan, China, Korea, India, Saudi Arabia and Southeast Asia

The greatest revenue share in 2021 was attributed to Asia Pacific. The packaging industry in Asia Pacific is growing quickly. In 2021, Europe's revenue contribution was only marginal. The demand for sustainable packaging is rising across a range of end-use industries, including the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and automotive sectors, and this is fueling the corrugated packaging market's expansion in terms of revenue. In 2021, North America's revenue growth rate remained consistent. The market for corrugated packaging has seen revenue increase due to rising environmental consciousness.
