Containerboard is a type of paperboard which is used for the manufacturing of corrugated boards. Basically, containerboard includes two parts, namely, linerboard and corrugating medium (fluted paper). It is also known as Corrugated Case Material (CCM) and is frequently used as a packaging material owing to its properties such as lightweight, versatile, and high grammage. Linerboard made from virgin pulp is known as kraftliner, whereas recycled linerboard is called testliner. The corrugated medium can be recycled into medium or virgin, also called semi-chemical medium depending on the type of the pulp used in the production process. This containerboard is manufactured in the paper industry and paper mill across the various country. After the manufacturing of containerboards, it is cut into a roll (width of 2.5 m, diameter of 1.45 m and weighs around 3,000 kg) containing along sheet of paper which later can be unwound in the corrugate machine for further production of different byproducts. The end use application of the containerboard in the production of lined paper, paper towels, papier-mache, cardboard, tissues, notebooks, watercolor paper, paper money, beverage cartons.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

  • During the pandemic, almost all the industry sector were temporarily on halt, which has resulted in less consumption of containerboard which is used in the packaging of various finished goods in these industries, which in turn has adverse impact on the demand in the containerboard market.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic totally has hampered various sectors due to the inconvenience of lockdowns in numerous countries across the globe. During these lockdowns, a few limitations have been set on industrial operations. Besides, major containerboard manufacturing enterprises like paper industry and paper mills have stopped their production factories.
  • The containerboard market is expected to witness a slowdown, owing to decline in demand and supply chain disruptions due to the global COVID-19 outbreak.

Top Impacting Factors

Containerboards are majorly used for the manufacturing of corrugated boxes. The demand for corrugated boxes is extensively useful for the packaging of food & beverages, glassware, chemicals, electronics, and consumer products. The growth of the food & beverage industry has created more demand globally. The changing lifestyle and increasing preference of consumers towards ready-to-eat, frozen foods, and packaged foods have led to the growth of the food & beverage industry. Hence, leading to the containerboard market growth. In addition, the rapid development of the e-commerce industry is also increasing the growth rate, on account of the use of product-specific corrugated boxes, to protect the product from damage and deliver the product in the safe. A critical factor hampering the growth of the market is the regulations imposed by the government on the exploitation of raw minerals. The manufacturing of virgin containerboards involves the use of virgin wood fiber, which creates a burden on the atmosphere. The production of these boards not only exploits natural sources but also emits toxic greenhouse gases, thereby adding up to the price. The regulations imposed by the government on the cutting of trees are also affecting the market growth. Hence, the above factors may inhibit the growth of the market.
