These sectors include, among others, the food and beverage, personal care and cosmetics, and electronics sectors. Landfills and the growing demand for environmentally friendly packaging are two significant factors driving the growth of the worldwide paper packaging and paperboard packaging market. Due of their non-biodegradability, plastic-based packaging materials are subject to strict laws worldwide.

The benefits provided by paper packaging and paperboard packaging, such as its light weight, low cost, good printability, and non-reactive qualities, are additional significant drivers. Consumers' increasing concern for sustainability and the end-use industries' embrace of eco-friendly packaging are likely to create new lucrative prospects and fuel the market for paper and paperboard packaging's rapid expansion.

How has COVID-19 had a significant negative impact on the Paper Packaging Market?

The COVID-19 epidemic caused significant problems for the packaging industry, including the consequences of the state-wide lockdown, corporations shifting their sourcing away from China, and re-evaluating the materials used in packaging. Although the end-user demand for paper packaging has dramatically increased in particular applications, the supply side of the industry has nevertheless had a substantial influence. The COVID-19 epidemic led to an increase in food packaging and a rising demand for corrugated packages in expanding e-commerce shipments, which are two of the main market drivers being examined. Demand for supermarket packaging, healthcare products, and e-commerce shipping has significantly increased in e-commerce websites. The need for industrial, luxurious, and certain B2B transit packaging has decreased at the same time.
