Market Drivers

Increasing Demand from Pharmaceutical Industries to Boost Growth


On the contrary, regulatory impositions based on the use of nature-friendly resources for the production of containerboards may pose a major challenge for the market players, thereby hampering the overall market size. Nevertheless, the rapidly developing e-commerce industry would aid growth. Apart from that, the rising preference for product-specific corrugated boxes for safety concerns regarding external stress is likely to create lucrative growth opportunities for the market in the forthcoming years.

This stands as a major factor in boosting the containerboard market growth. Besides this, the booming food and beverage sector with increasing popularity for ready-to-eat frozen food and convenient food would increase its productivity, thereby demanding more containerboards for package and shipment purposes. This will bode well for the market in the coming years.

Asia Pacific to Continue its Dominance with China on the Lead


On the other side, the market in Europe is expected to exhibit significant growth owing to the expansion of the personal care and cosmetics market. The market in the Middle East and Africa and Latin America will grow steadily with the development of retail distribution channels and the increasing agriculture-related businesses in the respective regions.


Asia Pacific is dominating the market with a revenue of USD 53.13 billion earned in 2019. The growth of this region is attributed to the rapid industrialization activities, coupled with a rise in the preference for ready-to-eat and packaged food and beverages. China stands as the leading producer of containerboard and will continue to do so in the forthcoming years on account of the busy lifestyle and rising production of convenient food products.
