Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is increase in demand for premium packaging. Premium packaging is the indication of high-quality products inside a box. Therefore, consumers have increased the demand for products with premium corrugated boxes. Vendors use innovative and expensive raw materials, technologies, and colors to develop premium corrugated boxes.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is growing demand from e-commerce industry. E-commerce acts as a major factor boosting the demand for corrugated boxes in Europe. The changing consumer lifestyle and demand for convenience has fuelled the growth of the e-commerce industry, which, in turn, triggers the growth of the corrugated box market in Europe. Online retailers make use of different types of corrugated boxes according to the products to be transported. These corrugated boxes ensure product safety during transportation. Also, corrugated boxes come in all designs, shapes, sizes, and colors.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is rise in cost of raw materials. Paper pulp is used as the raw material for manufacturing corrugated boxes. Its prices are volatile because they depend on the demand and supply scenario. The widening gap between demand and supply for the last 5 years has led to an increase in the cost of raw materials. In addition, paper pulp comes from wood, and wood prices have been increasing by more than 10% since 2014. This, in turn, has increased the price of paper pulp, thereby raising the price of corrugated boxes. Also, the price of wood pulp is estimated to rise further at an annual rate of 5%-5.5% till 2019.
