The Future of Folding Cartons to 2022
  • The value of the global cartonboard packing market passed the $100 billion mark in 2016, and consumed more than 40.3 million tonnes of material in folding carton and micro/miniflute packaging applications
  • The Future of Folding Cartons to 2022 forecasts global demand for cartonboard used in folding carton and micro/miniflute packaging applications to increase at 4.0% CAGR to reach a market value of $124.1 billion by 2022
  • Capacity for cartonboard production continues to grow and continues to outstrip demand growth
  • There is a belief that consolidation is necessary as many global brand owners prefer larger sources of supply to ensure continuity and compliance across regional markets, also enabling more efficient and simpler negotiations on global contracts.
