According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Containerboard Market is accounted for $132.23 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $171.21 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period. Containerboard is a type of paperboard made from wood fibre or recycled paper and used in the production of packaging materials such as cardboard and corrugated boxes. Containerboard's lightweight, high versatility, and durability are driving its demand for packaging applications in major industries such as food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and personal care, and electrical and electronics, which has influenced the market. The containerboard is stackable, crush resistant, and can withstand top and side pressure. It is impact, drop, and vibration resistant, and it can be customised for added security. Because of this, it is the preferred packaging material for shipping everything from electronics to fragile glassware to perishable goods for both industrial and residential use.

According to the American Forest and Paper Association, more than 50% of the recovered fiber used in the manufacturing of paper & paperboard goes into containerboard production. Where there will be a steady demand for the Containerboard market.



Market Dynamics:

Driver:

Growth in Food & Beverage Industry

Containerboards are primarily used in the production of corrugated boxes, which are widely used in the packaging of food and beverages, chemicals, glassware, consumer goods, and electronics. The global expansion of the food and beverage industry has increased demand. The shift in consumer lifestyle and increasing preference for frozen foods, ready-to-eat foods, and packaged foods has boosted the food and beverage industry, driving market growth. Furthermore, the rapid evolution of e-commerce platforms is boosting growth as a result of the use of product-specific packaging to protect items from external stress.

Restraint:

Price Fluctuation in Raw Materials

Recycled paper, such as kraft paper, is a major raw material in the production of containerboard. The negative impact of external climatic factors causes fluctuations in the production of such raw materials, causing their prices to fluctuate. For example, according to Mondi Group's August 2019 half-yearly report, kraft paper prices increased by about 8% in the first half of 2019 but fell in the second half. Such fluctuations are expected to pose a challenge to market growth, which negatively impacts the Containerboard Market during the forecast period.

Opportunity:

Increasing Demand for Sustainable Packaging Solutions

To promote sustainability, manufacturers of various products such as cosmetics, personal care, electronics, food and beverages, and others prefer eco-friendly packaging solutions. Because they are made from recycled materials, corrugated boxes are considered a sustainable and environmentally friendly form of packaging. The production of corrugated boxes from recycled materials assists manufacturers in reducing environmental impact and providing sustainability to the environment, thereby adhering to industrial standards and government regulations to protect the environment. As a result, manufacturers are transitioning to the production and use of 100% recyclable corrugated boxes.

Threat:

Government Regulations on the Use of Natural Resources

The government's stringent regulations on the exploitation of natural resources are the primary impediment to market growth. The use of virgin wood fibre in the production of virgin containerboards adds to the environmental burden. The production of these boards depletes natural resources and emits harmful greenhouse gases, raising the final cost. Government regulations governing tree-cutting are also obstructing market growth. As a result, the following factors are impeding market growth.

Covid-19 Impact

Since the pandemic outbreak in late 2019, many countries have declared restrictions on raw material distribution and transportation, affecting the containerboard value chain. The main manufacturing countries were on lockdown, posing a supply problem for the product, at least for the first half of 2020. This aspect limited the companies' production capacities due to a lack of workforce and a shortage of raw materials as a result of the disrupted supply chain. Furthermore, due to the severe lockdown, people have been unable to gather carton boards to recycle them, effectively halting recycling activities. The pandemic, on the other hand, increased the use of e-commerce platforms, resulting in an increased demand for corrugated packaging.

The Recycled segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The Recycled segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period due to the growing preference of consumer product manufacturers for recyclable materials, which has increased demand for recycled materials. Furthermore, the food and beverage industry's high demand for eco-friendly and sustainable packaging solutions has fueled the market. Additionally, demand for recycled ones is expected to grow because they are less expensive and comply with government environmental regulations, boosting the overall market.

The Food and Beverage segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The food and beverage segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the rising food industry across the world. The food and beverage industries require corrugated boxes made of containerboard for transportation and storage. This is due to its toughness, resistance to stacking and vibration, and ability to withstand crushing. These benefits help to reduce the cost of shipping and transportation, lowering the overall cost of packaging. As a result, the market will be driven by the growth of the food and beverage industry.

Region with largest share:

Asia-Pacific is expected to hold the largest share during the forecast period, with countries such as South Korea, Japan, China, Australia, and India leading the way with lucrative growth opportunities. Due to the region's busy lifestyle, it is prone to rapid industrialization activities as well as increased consumer preference for ready-to-make and packaged foods and beverages. Furthermore, China is the largest contributor to product demand, which will drive regional market growth.

Region with highest CAGR:

North America is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to its environmental concerns, which have emphasised the use of sustainable packaging materials in the region. Containerboard provides lightweight and durable packaging as well as appealing product display setups. As a result, end-users are in high demand in this region. Furthermore, the personal care industry uses containerboards to prevent property theft and spillage, which will drive the market in North America.
