Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Secondary Packaging Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global secondary packaging market: Amcor, International Paper Company, Reynolds Holding Group, Stora Enso, and WestRock.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Ball Corporation, Berry Plastics, Crown Holdings, Deufol, Molins, Mondi, Owens-Illinois, RPC, Sealed Air, and Smurfit Kappa Group.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is increasing number of automation for secondary packaging. Companies have predefined 3–4 fixed standard secondary packaging dimensions in which they can fit their primary products of different shapes and sizes. Many times, it so happens that because of the predefined shapes and sizes of the secondary packaging, there is space left for more products.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increase in sales of packaged food product. The primary packaging of food items is flexible, and food items are fragile by nature. Therefore, they require additional secure packaging to stay undamaged during their transit. This additional protection is obtained from the secondary packaging. The use of regular slotted carton (RSC) is extensive in the food industry. It is noted that many other industries are trying to reduce the use of corrugated boxes or RSC. However, the need for RSC and corrugated boxes is increasing the food industry.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is augmented price of papers. Secondary packaging materials largely consist of cardboard boxes, cartoon boxes, or corrugated boxes, which are generally made from papers. The prices of papers are set to rise in the range of one-fifth to one-tenth of their original price, approximately, in 2017. This rise in the price of the paper may have a ripple effect in the packaging industry. This is because most of the secondary packaging materials are made of paper. It is expected that the prices of corrugated boxes are set to increase in the range of 2%–5% annualized rate through 2017.
