Study coverage

Corrugated & Paperboard Boxes analyzes the US market for corrugated and paperboard boxes. It presents historical data (2005, 2010 and 2015) plus forecasts (2020 and 2025) for demand by product, material and market. The study also considers market environment factors, assesses industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 27 US industry competitors such as International Paper, Graphic Packaging, Georgia-Pacific, Packaging Corporation of America, and Westrock.

Maturity and competition challenge growth

Growth in corrugated and paperboard box demand will be relatively slow through 2020, especially in volume terms, as market maturity and competition from other packaging formats continue to limit gains. However, market value will register moderate growth as manufacturers seek to improve their competitive position or profitability through the addition of value-added features that allow the boxes to be sold at a price premium.

According to Corrugated & Paperboard Boxes, a new report from The Freedonia Group, the expanding use of flexible formats such as stand-up pouches in food packaging has led to limited opportunities for paperboard boxes, which have historically derived a major part of demand from markets such as grain mill and bakery products. However, the implementation of custom box sizing and high-quality printing will allow these products to remain competitive in retail and e-commerce markets.

High-quality printing offers distinction

Both corrugated and paperboard box manufacturers will benefit from greater demand for boxes with high-quality graphics. The incorporation of images with greater clarity on boxes is made possible by the use of specialized coatings and a growing range of printing techniques, including digital printing, that make reproduction of colorful graphics onto a box’s surface easier and more economical. There is also a general shift toward corrugated boxes that incorporate value-added features such as easy-tear strips, and are customized specifically for the packaged contents.

E-commerce & retail-ready applications spur growth

Freedonia projects that E-commerce and retail-ready applications will provide above average growth for corrugated and solid fiber boxes. The e-commerce market will continue to provide new opportunities for box manufacturers and users to transform commodity-like shipping containers into products that add to the marketing and branding potential of the packaged goods. Retail-ready packaging can help a product stand out on store shelves and can reduce labor costs by being easier to identify and stock.

Food & beverages remain largest market

Food and beverages comprise the single largest market for corrugated and paperboard boxes, accounting for nearly 50 percent of demand in 2015. As brand proliferation and marketing opportunities for food continue to rise, so will demand for boxes that supply brand information or are needed to protect shipments in transit.
