The Future of Global Corrugated Packaging to 2021

The Future of Global Corrugated Packaging to 2021, a new report from the experts at Smithers Pira, outlines the key trends affecting the future demand for corrugated materials.  After showing signs of recovery since the global economic crisis of 2009, the global corrugated market is projected to suffer from a combination of factors between 2016 and 2021. The factors contributing to the slowdown in growth over the medium turn include the downturn in China, the collapse of the oil price and growing unrest in the Middle East. Further, the industry continues to face on-going consolidation, with the latest merger of RockTenn and MWV creating a $15 billion global giant in containerboard production.

• Key drivers shaping the future of the industry, including lifestyles, demographics and environmental issues. 

• The latest market developments and opportunities for the global packaging industry.

• How the global corrugated packaging industry is likely to develop and what that means for your business.
