Containerboard Market in Latin America 2015-2019

Containerboard Market in Latin America 2015-2019

About containerboard

Containerboard is used to manufacture corrugated boxes or containers. It consists of an outer surface or facings called linerboard and an intervening fluting called corrugated medium. Linerboard is made from a mixture of Kraft and recycled pulps. A linerboard containing more than 80% virgin Kraft pulp is a Kraftliner and less than 80% is a Testliner. Integrated containerboard manufacturers produce their own raw materials for the production of containerboard. These manufacturers use containerboard to produce corrugated board boxes and also sell standalone corrugated board sheets.

Technavio's analysts forecast the containerboard market in Latin America to grow at a CAGR of 3.12% over the period 2014-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Containerboard Market in Latin America 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Containerboard Market in Latin America: Greif, International Paper, Klabin, Mondi and Smurfit Kappa Group

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Billerudkorsnas, DS Smith, Packaging Corporation of America, Pratt Industries, SCA, Sonoco Products, Stora Enso Packaging and Zucamor

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Vendors are providing high-performance, lightweight containerboard to reduce cost, improve performance, and address environmental concerns. These are eco-friendly products that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. MWV Rigesa also acquired a new paper machine that uses advanced technology to produce innovative kraftliner paper. Mondi, an international packaging company, invested in the recycled containerboard machine ECO7, which produces cost-effective, lightweight liners and flutings with an annual production capacity of 470,000 tons. Mondi also introduced ProVantage, a lightweight, durable, high-fiber containerboard made from recycled fiber. At the Interpack event in 2014, Mondi showcased its kraft portfolio of high-quality containerboard grades suitable for various packaging end-users such as chemical and pharmaceutical.”

According to the report, international vendors are setting up operations in Latin America due to the high demand for packaging in Central and South America. Vendors in Brazil, the major revenue contributor in the region, are increasing their operations either by expanding existing production plants or by acquiring small vendors.

Further, the report states that slow economic growth is a significant challenge hindering the growth of the market, which has caused the domestic demand for packaging products to decrease from 2014-2015.
