Paper is a thin material produced by pressing cellulose pulp together, which might be derived from rags, wood, or grasses. After pressing they are dried into flexible sheets, which then is used for writing, packaging, cleaning, and printing. Paper is majorly used for writing to note down thoughts, historical events, etc. Packaging is a process, in which different types of products are protected for sale, storage, transportation, distribution, etc. The packaging industry includes various applications including transportation, logistics, end-use, warehousing, etc. Materials such as paper, aluminum, plastics are used for packaging. However, in the recent past, the paper has replaced plastic in packaging industry gradually, owing to increasing environmental concerns. Moreover, there are a variety of options available in paper packagings such as green packaging, high-performance films, and more.
Global paper and packaging market size was valued at US$ 175.05 billion in 2017, and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.84% during the forecast period (2019-2027). Increasing demand for paper packaging among consumers is expected to boost the market growth in the near future. Furthermore, growing awareness regarding sustainable packaging is expected to boost the demand for paper packing and subsequently support growth of the market during the forecast period.
