Cardboard Box & Container Manufacturing in the US
The Cardboard Box and Container Manufacturing industry is the largest paper-converting industry in the United States. This industry is a significant consumer of paper, paperboard and old corrugated containers, servicing nearly every sector of the economy. Cardboard continues to be one of the most widely used materials for packaging; the industry has experienced slow but steady growth over the five years to 2018, despite volatility in the price of wood pulp early in the period.

Online operators require industry products to ship goods purchased online to their customers. Over the five years to 2023, the industry is forecast to continue growing. Food and beverage producers will continue to provide a stable source of demand for industry products.
