Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Folding Carton Market in EMEA 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the folding carton market in EMEA: Graphic Packaging, Mayr-Melnhof Karton, Smurfit Kappa, and WestRock

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Amcor, AR Packaging, Atlas Holdings, Delta Packaging, Edelman, International Paper, Sonoco, and Van Genechten.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Increased mergers and acquisitions. The folding carton market in EMEA is highly competitive with many international and regional players. To enter the untapped markets, a number of mergers and acquisitions are expected to take place during the forecast period as part of the strategic alliances. Vendors, such as Graphic Packaging, are trying to expand their market share by entering new acquisitions and mergers. For example, in July 2017, the company completed the acquisition of Carton Craft Corporation and its affiliate Lithocraft.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Demand for sustainable packaging solutions. Folding cartons use paperboards that are derived from wood pulp or recycled waste paper. These paperboards are environment-friendly as they do not contain any toxic substances. They are biodegradable and compostable in nature. The increasing number of government regulations regarding packaging materials will foster the growth of the market. The major regulations are mainly imposed on non-biodegradable packaging materials like plastics, which are a major point of concern for the environment.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Contamination from recycled paperboard. The need to limit waste and landfills caused by used paper and paperboard has boosted the need to recycle them for further use. With the concept of a circular economy, the need to reduce wastes is increasing. Emissions have led to the recycling of materials to keep their value in the loop and minimize the use of resources. However, recycled paper and paperboards can have a negative impact on the products packaged in them.
