The Global Corrugated Paper Market size is projected to reach USD XX.X billion by 2028. The growing demand for corrugated papers from the packaging industry and the increasing need to use eco-friendly materials will fuel this growth over the next six years. The single Corrugated Cardboard segment dominated the overall market in 2016 with a share of more than 60%.



Corrugated paper is a combination of two or more plies of paper that are joined together with heat and pressure. Generally, the innermost layer is made up of one-ply which acts as an interior liner while the other outer layers consist of kraft paper or recycled paper that is known as fluting. The corrugated board consists of three components which are, linerboard (innermost), medium, and the kraft liner or fluted paper in between them both. The strength of corrugated boxes depends on how strong these layers are when combined together. There are different types of corrugating processes used to manufacture this product depending on what type of material you have chosen for it. If anyone layer contains a problem then your entire box may be affected by it so choose carefully before finalizing anything. Corrugation is done by passing the sheet through two rollers at once while heat and pressure are applied in order to mold everything into its respective position.



On the basis of Type, the global corrugated paper market is segmented into Single Corrugated Cardboard and Double Corrugated Cardboard.



Single Corrugated Cardboard:

Single corrugated cardboard is a kind of paperboard that has three layers: two medium-density fiberboards bonded with an exterior decorative layer called “fluting.” The fluted material, made from kraft liner board or recycled fibers, provides the strength and rigidity needed for shipping purposes. The term "corrugated" refers to the ridges (or folds) formed by the fluted paper's manufacturing process. These ridges are cut at angles on one side so they interlock when folded; this creates air pockets between the boards which provide insulation to keep products cool in transit. Single corrugated cardboard can contain up to seven plies (layers).



Double Corrugated Cardboard:

Double corrugated cardboard (DCC) is a type of double-wall packaging board. It consists of two single face sheets and an inner liner, with fluting between them. The idea behind it is to make the material stronger than other types such as Single Corrugated Cardboard (SCC), which only has one wall or surface for strength and no flute inside. This structure can be custom designed by users depending on their needs because the sheet formation process allows the manufacturer to create unique characteristics in terms of thickness, size, etc., making DCC more durable compared to SCC products.



On the basis of Application, the global corrugated paper market is segmented into Food Industry, Beverage Industry, Daily Chemical Products, Fiber Industry, and Medical.



Food Industry:

Corrugated paper is used in the food industry for the packaging of many products. It provides effective protection to packaged items against any kind of mishandling during transportation, loading, and unloading operations. Corrugated papers are ideal for stacking one on top of another without compressing or crushing them so that they can be easily handled later when needed at storehouses or warehouses etc., thus minimizing the need for repackaging.



Beverage Industry:

The beverage industry uses corrugated paper to make carton boxes for the packaging of various beverages like milk, water, juice, and other items. These types of packages are light in weight but sturdy enough that do not require the use of secondary support like wooden crates or metal containers. This makes it easy to transport these products from one place to another without any difficulty.

Corrugated paper is used in the beverage industry to help protect products during distribution. The corrugate boxes are often stacked one on top of another until they reach their destination, where they are then either stored or shipped out immediately after arrival. If not properly packaged, beverages could come into contact with other types of materials that can affect taste and quality - this makes proper packaging essential for any company concerned about maintaining a positive consumer experience. Corrugated box manufacturers provide several different color options so businesses have control over which shade best matches their brand identity as well as aesthetics for consumers when drinks are displayed next to each other on shelves at retail locations. This allows companies extra freedom to create distinct identities without worrying about compromising product protection - ensuring bottles are not damaged during shipping and storage.



Daily Chemical Products:

Corrugated paper is used in the Daily Chemical Product Industry to store chemical products. The corrugated sheet provides rigid support that can withstand rough handling during transport while allowing for the efficient flow of materials through the supply chain. It also protects against humidity and other weather conditions. Corrugated paper is used in the Daily Chemical Product Industry to pack goods such as chemicals, pesticides, and fertilizers. Corrugated boxes are widely preferred over other materials due to their strength and ability to be easily stacked on top of each other without causing any damage or putting a strain on them.



Fiber Industry:

The Fiber Industry uses corrugated paper in various applications. It is used to store, pack and deliver fiber products like glass wool insulation boards. The product ensures high-quality standards at the right price for the customer while maintaining safety through an efficient packing process with no hassle of labeling or marking each package separately because it comes pre-marked on every flute which saves time and money for both producers as well as buyers by reducing their operational costs. The corrugated paper thus paves way for cost-efficient packaging solutions meeting all industry requirements.




The various applications of corrugated paper in the Medical sector are primarily used for making bags, bottles, and boxes. Corrugated packaging is also used to make containers that can hold medical specimens like blood samples or urine. It is highly durable with high tear resistance which makes it perfect for packaging hazardous materials like biohazards or drugs. The corrugation pattern on this kind of material allows ventilation which helps preserve perishable items by reducing moisture loads within packages. This reduces the growth of microorganisms while also preventing spoilage caused due to condensation damage from poor airflow conditions inside a package container - these factors have made usage of corrugated paper in the healthcare industry quite popular among manufacturers globally.



On the basis of Region, the global corrugated paper market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.

The growth of the market in the North American region is primarily driven by growing demand for paper-based packaging material from the food industry across countries such as the U.S., Canada, and Mexico due to the increasing adoption of eco-friendly paper-based materials over plastic containers which leads towards the higher growth rate of this segment throughout the forecast period.

Asia Pacific will experience a significant CAGR during the forecast period owing to rapidly changing lifestyle coupled with increased disposable income has led to rising in per capita consumption resulting in rapid development within end-user industries especially Food Industry that contributes towards high adoption rates for corrugated paper products resulting into a substantial increase in demand across emerging economies including India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, and Malaysia.

Europe is one of the largest regional markets for corrugated paper. It presently accounts for a major share in global production, demand, and consumption. The market size of Europe has been estimated at around USD XX billion which is expected to grow by more than 25% towards 2028 from the 2017 level. The market for corrugated paper in the Middle East & Africa region has been growing at a significant pace due to rising demand from food, beverages, and other general industry verticals such as daily chemical products.
