Paperboard Industry Trends To Look Out For


As society continues to experience upheavals in many different sectors, analysts indicate that the paperboard industry is also set for a challenging, yet exciting future.

Urban Expansion

With the construction industry creating extra demands for raw materials such as timber, it will be in direct competition with the paper industry, resulting in an even greater need for recycled paper products. With the population predicted to reach 60 million in the next few years, there is also likely to be a greater role for paperboard and chipboard in the new businesses that will be created.

Retail Changes

More consumers than ever are making their purchases online, a trend that is certain to continue increasing. However, the decline of traditional retail outlets has seen a dramatic rise in goods being delivered to millions of homes with vast quantities of recycled grey paper board packaging being required.

Global Economy

As developing countries make progress in achieving greater prosperity, their emerging paper industries will be competing for a larger share of the global market. India for instance, has already become the fourth largest paper recycler in the world and will no doubt be hoping to improve.

Environmentally Friendly

Society is becoming more aware over the urgent need to preserve the environment, increasing facilities for recycling and using sustainable products. Grey board packaging is a perfect example of an ecological product and predicted to completely replace plastic trays and containers on the supermarket shelves in the near future.

IoT Technology

The futuristic IoT technology that creates interactive links between unrelated objects such as household appliances, vehicles and smartphones continues to develop. However, the decline in white paper products due to an expansion of online communications is offset by an estimated 18% increase in requirements for recycled paper board packaging for all the extra smart hardware.

Paperboard Opportunities

Changes in society such as an increasing population and larger cities will see greater competition for raw materials, while the preference for online shopping is already causing alarm amongst traditional shops. However, recycled paper board products are in ever greater demand for fast food outlets, parcel deliveries and point of sale display packaging. Although competition from abroad could be damaging, there are challenging opportunities ahead for the paper board industry.
