Cardboard Box & Container Manufacturing in the US
Over the past five years, the Cardboard Box and Container Manufacturing industry has benefited from rising manufacturing activity and the stability of purchases from food, beverage and agricultural producers. Conditions for the industry over the next five years will remain dependent upon activity within key downstream industries that use cardboard packaging products. Industrial production is forecast to improve over the five years to 2022 as consumer spending picks up. However, the growth of input prices such as the world price of wood pulp, which affects paperboard prices, will restrain industry profit margin growth. In addition, continued capital expenditure will boost labor productivity and lower operating costs.
This industry converts purchased paper, paperboard and old corrugated containers into cardboard boxes, containers and similar packaging solutions. Industry operators produce corrugated and solid cardboard packaging for a range of sectors and industries, including manufacturing, agriculture, wholesale, shipping and retail, among others.
