Corrugated & Paperboard Boxes in the US

Upgraded product features will drive gains in an otherwise mature box market. Box makers are working to enhance profit margins by dispelling the notion that corrugated boxes are commodity products differentiated primarily by grade and material type. Finding innovative applications for these features to support current consumer trends and behavior will be a key objective of box suppliers. Such value-added features used in corrugated and paperboard boxes include child-proof elements, easy-open strips, resistance and strengthening bands, handles, high-quality graphics, tamper-evidence, and specialized coatings. This new study discusses how these factors will impact sales of corrugated and paperboard boxes going forward.

Corrugated & Solid Fiber

Folding Paperboard Boxes

Set-Up (Rigid) Boxes

Raw materials include:

Paperboard (Unbleached Kraft, Recycled Board, Semichemical Board, Bleached Board)
