Paper packaging is a sustainable and versatile way to transport and protect goods. Paper is 100% recyclable, compostable and biodegradable. Paper and board are manufactured from the natural fibers of bleached and unbleached cellulose, or from recycled paper. It is a more environment friendly alternative to plastic based packaging. Additional advantages include lightweight material, strong and is customizable in packaging design, as packaging aesthetics play a major role in customer preference.
The major drivers of the paper packaging market are the environment friendly nature of paper, low cost compared to alternatives and scrutiny from governments, public, NGOs, and media regarding waste generation. Companies taking an environmental stand have observed a better public profile than their counterparts, and this directly translates into company health.
The major challenges are that paper cannot be used in packaging of very heavy materials. This industry is still dominated by polymers and metal packaging. Furthermore, deforestation due to logging and the release of dioxins during paper production are a cause for environmental concern.
