Cardboard Box & Container Manufacturing in the US

While cardboard packaging is one of the most widely used forms of packaging, the industry was not immune to the adverse effects of the recession. Demand from food and beverage manufacturing industries will stabilize; however, increased offshoring will cut into overall domestic demand. Restructuring among operators will boost profitability.

This industry converts purchased paper, paperboard and old corrugated containers into cardboard boxes, containers and similar packaging solutions. The industry produces corrugated and solid cardboard packaging for a range of sectors and industries, including manufacturing, agriculture, wholesale, shipping and retail, among others.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
