The booming e-commerce business is also expected to augment the demand for corrugated boards. Flexibility and lightweight of corrugated boards enable easy handling and transportation, which is a requisite for the e-commerce industries.

Japan is expected to witness significant growth on account of various factors such as rising industrial activity in the manufacturing sector that requires corrugated packaging to transport and protect goods. Ongoing developments in small flute and high-quality graphic board are expected to boost the penetration of corrugated boxes in traditional folding carton applications.
