Market Dynamic

What are the causes driving the rise in demand for Folding Cartons?

Folding cartons provide numerous advantages, including outstanding printability, rigidity, and flexibility; end-use industries rely heavily on packaging small and medium-sized food and beverage products and consumer goods.

An expanding restriction on single-use plastic packaging by regulatory authorities worldwide, combined with rising consumer sustainability awareness, has compelled end-use sectors to choose eco-friendly and non-plastic Packaging. This trend is projected to increase demand for folding cartons even further in the future years.

What are the opportunities in the Folding Cartons Market?

Renewable and recyclable packaging solutions are increasingly essential in the folding cartons sector. Manufacturers are creating boxes made from fibers from sustainably managed forests and trees. These fibers are developing as a viable replacement for fossil plastic and other non-renewable materials.

Governments worldwide have banned single-use plastic packaging, and increased consumer awareness of sustainability has led to companies adopting eco-friendly and non-plastic Packaging. It will create abundant opportunities for market growth.

COVID-19 Impact

Increasing product pricing and lockdown scenarios have negatively impacted global demand for folding cartons. However, the food and beverage and healthcare businesses have contributed to keeping the product growing steadily.

However, 2021 saw a slight increase over 2020 due to fewer COVID instances and increased global transit.

Segment-Wise Analysis

Why is the Food & Beverage segment expected to expand the fastest during the forecast period?

Globally changing consumer lives and rising disposable income have resulted in greater consumption of convenient food products such as packaged meals. A busy lifestyle and an increase in the number of working women have led to the rise in the consumption of ready-to-eat food products, which is likely to further expand the size of the food & beverage industry in the future.

Why is the Asia-Pacific market for Folding Cartons so promising?

In 2021, Asia Pacific dominated the worldwide folding carton packaging market. China, India, and Indonesia are among the Asia Pacific’s growing economies. Changing consumer lifestyles, higher disposable incomes, and expanding demand for packaged foods like ready-to-eat meals will likely boost folding carton demand over the forecast period.

The increasing presence of organized retail chains in Asia has fueled demand for packaged food goods, benefiting the industry.
