Packaging Made from Strong Fibers: Corrugated Board, Solid Board and Cartonboard

Ceresana forecasts that demand in Europe for corrugated board, solid board and cartonboard packaging will increase by an average rate of 1.8% per year until 2032.
KONSTANZ, Germany - April 6, 2023 - PRLog -- Taking a breather after Covid-19: during the pandemic, online retail virtually exploded – but now the development of e-commerce is slowing down again. Nonetheless, manufacturers and suppliers of shipping packaging can continue to expect growth. Individual branches of the economy are suffering from the poor consumer confidence, such as paper goods, stationery, office and household supplies, cleaning and laundry. Conversely, demand for packaging is growing, particularly for e-commerce, electrical and electronics, pharmaceuticals and medicine but also for chilled and frozen food.

Sustainable Corrugated Board for the Circular Economy

Corrugated board is a true closed-loop product made from renewable raw materials and is mainly manufactured from waste paper and used cartonboard; the pulp for virgin fibers usually does not come from trees cut down specifically for this purpose but from scrap and thinned wood. The smooth and corrugated paper webs are glued together with glue made from plant starch. Stable packaging made of corrugated board offers very good product protection and stackability at low weight. They can usually be reused and recycled several times; in some cases, they are compostable after use. In many cases, corrugated board is therefore a more environmentally friendly alternative to plastic packaging.

Combining Cardboard and Plastic for Effective Advertising

Despite environmental concerns, plastics continue to replace other materials in some areas of the packaging market. In non-alcoholic beverages, for example, PET bottles are increasingly replacing the classic beverage carton for fruit juice; in the field of milk, bottles made of polyethylene-HDPE are gaining further market shares. Increasingly, different packaging materials are also being combined, making recycling more difficult. For example, a plastic tray as primary packaging is combined with outer packaging made of cardboard, which can be easily printed. Beverage cartons are often coated with aluminum and polyethylene. Shelf-ready transportation packaging is becoming increasingly important as an advertising medium and marketing space.
