Environment friendly nature of paper, low cost compared to alternatives and scrutiny from governments, public, NGOs, and media regarding waste generation are the major drivers fueling market growth. Companies taking an environmental stand have observed a better public profile than their counterparts, which helps in the direct translation of company health.
The major challenges faced by the market is the inability of paper in packaging of very heavy materials, resulting in the industry being overpowered by the polymers and metal packaging industries. Furthermore, deforestation to acquire raw material and the release of dioxins during paper production cause environmental concerns, in turn hindering growth of the paper packaging market.
Paper Packaging Market Taxonomy

On basis of grade
On basis of end-user
Corrugated containers are primarily used as tertiary packing, which is removed by retailers before sale. Owing to the higher degree of strength from the layered paper packaging structure, corrugated containers are used to carry heavy goods such as electronics or multiple packages in the same container. Cartons, on the other hand, are lightweight materials used for packaging single items. Paper bags are made from a single layer of paper and are used for light duty applications such as grocery packaging.
Solid bleached surface is a bleached chemical board with a mineral or synthetic coating for printing purposes. It is used in high-end packaging, pharmaceuticals, and food packaging, where aroma and flavor retention are essential. Coated recycled paperboard is produced from 100% recycled material and is coated with a kaolin layer for product description printing, these are used for cereal boxes, soaps and detergents, and paper goods packaging. Uncoated recycled paperboard is also produced from 100% recycled material and is used for shoeboxes, composite cans, and fiber drums.
Largest end-user industry of paper packaging is the food industry. Moreover, with population in emerging economies such as China and India getting richer, the demand for packaged goods increases, in turn driving growth of the packaging industry.
