Key Findings:

  • Inkjet is starting to make inroads into corrugated printing. In 2017 the total inkjet corrugated market was valued at $7.9 billion, a little under 1.1 billion square metres which is just under 610,000 tonnes
  • Display dominates in value terms, but packaging is growing much faster
  • The volume of ink used in inkjet printing corrugated was just over 4 million litres in 2017, with an annual growth rate of 32.4% forecast to 2022, when it will total 16.4 million litres.
