Corrugated & Paperboard Boxes

As Quoted In PFFC - Paper, Film & Foil Converter

US corrugated and paperboard box demand will rise 2.4 percent annually through 2014. Gains will be driven in part by higher-value types with better graphics capabilities, including folding cartons and corrugated boxes. Internet-based shopping will also support box demand. Durable goods will be the fastest growing market.

This study analyzes the $32.3 billion US corrugated and paperboard box industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by material, product (e.g., corrugated and solid fiber boxes, folding paperboard boxes, set-up paperboard boxes) and market (e.g., food and beverages, nonfood nondurable goods, durable goods, nonmanufacturing).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 26 industry players, including International Paper, Smurfit-Stone and Georgia-Pacific.
