According to a new market report published by Persistence Market Research “Global Market Study on Corrugated Packaging: Glassware and ceramics application to witness highest growth by 2020”, the global corrugated packaging market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.0% during 2014 to 2020, to reach an estimated USD 173.6 million by 2020.

Increasing population coupled with rising per capita income is encouraging industrial production worldwide, which, consequently, is increasing the number of shipments. Owing to low costs and easy handling, corrugated packaging is considered as ideal for shipments across several industries. Based on the application, corrugated packaging is used in different shapes such as sheets, liner board, boxes, and containerboards. Based on dimensions of the packaging medium, corrugated packaging is classified as A-flute, B-flute, C-flute, E-flute, and F-flute.

The various application industries that use corrugated packaging include processed food, fresh food and produce, beverages, personal and household care, chemicals, paper products, electrical and electronic goods, glassware and ceramics, and tobacco.


The electronic commerce (e-commerce) industry is growing at a fast pace globally, which, consequentially, is leading to increasing in demand for corrugated packaging. Corrugated packaging is one of the best-suited packaging mediums for the e-commerce industry. The global e-commerce industry was worth USD 1.2 trillion in 2013. Currently, approximately 40% of global Internet users buy products online via desktops, mobile phones, and tablets. China and India are among fastest growing markets for e-commerce. According to an announcement in 2014 by the Indian Corrugated Case Manufacturers’ Association (ICCMA), the corrugated packaging industry in India is expected to grow at around 10% in the coming years; of this, the e-commerce industry is expected to account for a significant demand.


Request Sample Report:


Currently, corrugated packaging is considered as the most cost-effective packaging solution. However, its low endurance and a high propensity for deformation restricts its area of application. Corrugated packaging is best suited for products within a certain weight range, beyond which it is not considered as an ideal packaging medium. This restricts its usage to a limited number of industries. High and cyclic relative humid weather decreases the compression strength of corrugated boxes, especially that of recycled corrugated boxes. Corrugated packaging also requires protection from liquids and sparks.
