Corrugated box is made up of the corrugated fibreboard consisting of fluted corrugated sheets along with one or more linerboards. Due to the presence of flutes, the corrugated box attains higher strength and better flexibility when compared to the cardboard. Corrugated boxes are durable, versatile, light material materials and are immensely used for packaging applications for industrial and consumer goods. Corrugated boxes are an eco-friendly alternative to conventional packaging solutions owing to biodegradable and recyclable characteristics.

Higher Demand for Eco-friendly Packaging

Environmental degradation through a varied medium is the key area of concern globally. The issues regarding the recyclability of the conventional packaging materials is one of them. This has given rise to eco-friendly packaging components such as cardboard and corrugated boxes. An increase in consumer awareness regarding the environmental impact of non-degradable packaging materials is shifting the consumer demand for the green packaging.

Market Challenge:

Escalating Raw Material Prices

For the production of corrugated fibreboard, Kraft paper is the key raw material used, which is then process and folded to develop a corrugated box of desired shape and size. However, the volatile price of the raw materials for the production of the corrugated box is acting as a major restraint for the market growth. The cost of the raw materials especially Kraft paper is escalating owing to insufficient supply disruption. In addition to this, increasing global delivery and packaging demand has further escalated the demand for Kraft paper, which increases its price.

Hence, rising raw material prices is anticipated to act as a roadblock for the market growth.
