Global Flute Market - 2021-2028

Global Flute Market - 2021-2028

Market Overview:

The material found between the carton box's liner boards is referred to as flute. The flute's architecture contributes to the carton's longevity and ability to withstand more strain. It has an effect on the ease at which the package dents and the height at which the boxes can be stacked for shipment. The flute thickness is crucial in assessing the strength of the carton box or shipping container. The thickness of most flutes used in packaging made by a regular flute lamination machine is about 0.25 mm. The global flute market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 3.01% during the forecast period, reaching USD xx billion in 2028. On the other hand, the global flute market volume is likely to reach USD 187.37 million tons in 2028, from its recorded volume of USD XX million tons in 2020. The growth of online and e-ecommerce sales in food and beverages, electronics, cosmetics and other key end use industries of corrugated cardboard is another factor supporting the growth of the global flute market.

Market Dynamics: Growing demand for sustainable packaging is expected to drive the global flute market

Economic growth, consumer trends, packaging technology and product branding, were the key trends shaping the global packaging industry. Consumers and manufacturers of goods are moving alike towards sustainable, economic and environmental packaging solutions. The rising demand for paper and cardboard packaging coupled with its economic and environmental benefits over other materials is the primary driver for the growth of the global flute market. Cardboard evolved as the most sustainable packaging solution over plastic, wood and metal. Also, corrugated cardboard made of layered flute offers high protection against mechanical impact, thus dominating the paper packaging products. Corrugated cardboard has been witnessing significant demand from the food and beverages industry owing to food safety, quality and hygiene that can be attained by corrugated cardboard.

According to research conducted by the University of Bologna in 2018, corrugated flute packaging is the most effective packaging material that offers food safety and prevents microbial infections. Corrugated containers also offer cushioning, ventilation and mechanical protection to support the transportation of fresh farm produce. Also, the growth of processed food industry and foodservice sectors led to new growth avenues for the flute market. Pizza boxes, fruit and vegetable packages are the major applications of flutes in food and beverage packaging. Flute increases the durability of the cardboard carton and is widely in packaging applications across several other industries, including healthcare, personal care, textiles and small industrial supplies.

However, printing on corrugated cardboard is a complex process and is the primary concern in the use of fluted packaging solutions historically. Most of the flute sizes, including widely used B, C and E-flute, is not suitable for direct offset printing.

Market Segmentation: Microflute segment is expected to be the largest segment with a share of XX% during the forecast period.

The global flute market, on the basis of type, is segmented into the microflute and miniflute. The microflute segment held the largest share as of 2020. Microflutes are lightweight, durable corrugated boards with minimum thickness, made from a fluted corrugated sheet and one or two inner and outer sheets. The micro-flute packaging material can be cut or folded into any shape or size as per the design requirements. According to AICC (Association of Independent Corrugated Converters), micro-flute packaging makes up 5-7% of total US corrugated shipments. The demand for micro-flute packaging materials is anticipated to increase, supported by the growth of e-commerce packaging and food & beverage segments, with companies focused on expanding production capacities to meet the growing demand. For instance, in December 2017, DS Smith Plc opened a new PackRight Centre in Germany to develop innovative and creative display and packaging concepts and increase sales.

Geographical Penetration: Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the global flute market

Asia Pacific evolved as the largest regional market for flute market owing to large-scale adoption of corrugated packaging in food and beverage, healthcare, consumer electronics and several other industries. The region accounted for 40% of the global flute sales revenue in 2020. The growing sales of electronic goods and home care products, rapidly surging e-commerce sales, developments in digital printing technologies, increasing interest towards sustainable and convenient packaging are some of the factors leading to the growth of corrugated packaging and flute market in the region. China is the single largest consumer of flute in the world accounting for XX% and XX% of global flute sales value and volume respectively in 2020. The second-largest corrugated box manufacturing industry is responsible for the continuous growth of flute consumption in the country. Corrugated box industry has become an integral part of manufacturing sectors that require reliable, sustainable and recyclable packaging.

Competitive Landscape:

Global flute market is fragmented, with key players dominating the market. Some of the prominent players of the global flute market include DS Smith, Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG, Smurfit Kappa Group and Mayr-Melnhof Packaging, among others. The paper industry's highly competitive market and the presence of prominent players in the market drive the application area of packaging through specialty and other paper products. Moreover, various companies have been expanding their reach with the rise in manufacturing capabilities within Europe and abroad. For instance, in august 2020, Saica Group, the third-largest European producer of recycled paper for corrugated packaging, announced its plan to build a USD 72 million packaging plant outside of Cincinnati, Ohio.

COVID-19 Impact: The rise of COVID-19 had a negative impact on the global flute packaging market

The rise of COVID-19 had a negative impact on the global flute packaging market owing to uncertain demand from end-use industries, disruptions in raw material availability, supply chain disruptions and production halts in micro flute and corrugated carton production. The packaging industry has not been exempted under essential industries from lockdowns imposed, and production of packaging materials has significantly declined during the period. Also, reduced demand from end-use industries such as consumer electronics, textiles and office stationery owing to lower consumer demand during the pandemic led to declined sales of flute for corrugated packaging. Consumer spending on corrugated and microflute packaging for consumer electronics, footwear and apparel is estimated to reduce by 34%, 47% and 50% respectively in the U.S. in 2020.
