New Product Functionality of Corrugated Cardboard Necessary
The fiber based packaging market is predicted to grow at a modest CAGR of 3.6% during the assessment period. This is explained since certain materials used in packaging may not be eligible for recycling. For instance, boxboard is recyclable, but the same material used for packaging beer and frozen food may not be recyclable, as they are often waxed for refrigeration. Hence, manufacturers need to boost their R&D capabilities to develop easily recyclable materials that support frozen food, beer, and soda packaging.
Reinventing corrugated cardboard has become the need of the hour in the fiber based packaging market. Thus, manufacturers are working closely with producers to target new and improved product functionality.
High Capital Investments Prevent Innovations in Corrugated Box Packaging
Corrugated boxes are anticipated to dictate the highest share among all packaging types in the fiber based packaging market. However, ensuring innovations in corrugated boxes is a capital-intensive strategy for the already expensive supply chains, thus preventing development of new materials. Hence, manufacturers are boosting their research efforts and establishing close interactions with product manufacturers in the food, beverages, personal care, and eCommerce industries to steer innovations in corrugated box materials.
Small entrepreneurs such as GreenBox are gaining recognition in the fiber based packaging market for their innovative designs in existing corrugated boxes to create value proposition for stakeholders in the value chain. As such, reusable plastic containers are posing a threat to corrugates box sales.
