Single Wall Board Style to Gain High Traction Across Commercial Applications in Corrugated Board Packaging Market

Single wall corrugated board packaging held a significant revenue share in the market on the global front. This type of board style can be used as a divider or a partition or as supplemental protective material inside the outer packaging. This board style form allows easy printing in which different coatings can be applied on the surface. Moreover, it also reduces the overall weight of boxes, thus resulting in reduction in shipping costs. In this backdrop, the demand for single wall board style is expected to increase across commercial applications, consequently contributing towards growth of the corrugated board packaging market.

Emerging Economies in Asia Pacific to Account for a Significant Value Share in the Corrugated Board Packaging Market

Momentous growth in the e-commerce sector coupled with rising demand for packaged food products has influenced the expansion of the corrugated board packaging market in Asia Pacific. In addition, awareness regarding environmental security has led to the production and consumption of green packaging solutions. Also, government authorities are imposing bans on the use of plastic material in various Asian countries. This factor continues to fuel the adoption of corrugated board packaging for various end use applications in the region.

This has directly influenced the demand for advanced green packaging solutions, thus contributing towards value growth of the corrugated board packaging market in Asia Pacific. Furthermore, growing industries such as electronics, food and beverage, cosmetics and other consumer goods have significantly influenced the use of corrugated board packaging solutions. These aspects coupled with macroeconomic factors such as stable rise in the economy and GDP per capita and rising urbanization across countries such as China and India remain instrumental in bolstering the growth of the market in Asia Pacific.
