New Report Released: – Corrugated Box Market in the US 2017-2021

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One trend in market is rapid advances in printing. Printing on packaging boosts the visual appeal of a product, thereby adding value to its brand visibility. It is the point of scale display that attracts customers. Corrugated boxes can have imprints of photorealistic images as part of the smart marketing initiatives. There are many types of printing processes for corrugated boxes, such as flexography, lithography, and digital printing. Among these, flexographic printing is cost-effective and digital printing is commonly used. The increasing demand for premium packaging, especially for premium consumer products, such as cosmetics and other household items, require advanced printing. Vendors use expensive ingredients, technologies, colors, and other raw materials to develop premium packs. Many consumers will buy such products as gifts, which require an appealing printing texture.”

According to the report, one driver in market is increased market consolidation. The corrugated box market in the US is a competitive market. Manufacturers in the market prefer inorganic growth, as acquisitions, partnerships, and mergers will help them to grow at a faster pace through technology implementations and innovations. This increase in the number of mergers, acquisitions, and partnerships in the market drives consolidation among vendors, wherein large vendors either acquire or enter into a partnership with small vendors. In the early 2000s, about 60% of the market in the US was held by the top 10 vendors. However, during 2012-2015, almost 68% of the market was dominated by the top four vendors. This indicates the trend toward increased consolidation by vendors in the market. Consolidation leads to the following changes in the corrugated box market in the US.

Further, the report states that one challenge in market is impact of just-in-time inventory model. End-users of corrugated boxes prefer just-in-time inventory rather than traditional storage inventory because these boxes require more inventory space, which increases the inventory maintenance cost. With just-in-time inventory model, consumers of corrugated boxes save 20% to 30% of the inventory space. In addition, consumers will demand for corrugated boxes for other storing purposes. It is hard for corrugated box manufacturers to forecast the demand, which is two weeks ahead. However, corrugated box manufacturers can overcome this issue by outsourcing the inventory to third-party inventory control for efficient operations. Many leading players in the corrugated box market prefer third-party inventory control than having an in-house inventory system.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
