The clay-coated recycled boxboard is a thin, transparent plastic film that adheres to objects and to itself and is used to wrap food in containers. It is also referred to as plastic wrap, food wrap, saran wrap, and stretch film. High-quality food wrap films made of clay-coated recycled boxboards preserve food’s freshness, shield it from bugs and microbial contamination, and lower the likelihood of food waste by increasing its shelf life.

Market Dynamic


One important topic that manufacturers and environmentalists heavily occupy throughout the world is expanding the application of sustainable resources. For instance, they encourage biodegradable packaging materials among multinational cereal businesses and international merchants like Kellogg’s, Quaker, etc., such as clay-coated recycled boxboard.

To lessen their influence on the environment, these businesses collaborate with multi-stakeholder organizations like the Environmental Defense Fund and WWF. Such international regulatory bodies advocate for the necessary sustainable changes in packaging materials, placing special emphasis on using paper-based packaging goods like clay coated recycled boxboard to lessen the manufacturers’ overhead costs while reducing the impact on the environment.


The market for clay-coated recycled boxboard will face obstacles due to the high price of the product and the high maintenance and installation requirements. Clay-coated recycled boxboard will suffer from the intense competition from numerous alternative packaging options such as solid bleached sulfate, coated unbleached kraft, and non-bending chipboard. As a result, this will hinder the market’s expansion rate for clay-coated recycled boxboard.


In the projected period of 2023 to 2032, the numerous worldwide regulatory organisations’ expanding advocacy efforts for the necessary sustainable modifications in packaging materials will provide lucrative prospects to market participants. These rules favour paper-based packaging materials like clay-coated recycled boxboard even more, which accelerates the market’s expansion overall.
