Folding Cartons Market Dynamics

Drivers

  • Increasing usage of folding cartons in the tobacco industry

The growing usage of folding cartons in tobacco packaging because of its printability and convenience will likely generate immense opportunities within the market. The tobacco industry has been accounting for significant traction despite the severe bans and taxation, mainly because of the growing demand from the millennial population. Growing stress levels among the younger population have also increased the demand for tobacco-based products such as cigarettes. Thus, the growth of the tobacco industry will likely generate significant demand for folding cartons during the forecast period.

  • Growing usage of paper and paperboard folding cartons by manufacturers and retailers

The increasing usage of paper and paperboard folding cartons by product manufacturers and retailers will likely impede the market growth. The paper and paperboard folding cartons can be efficiently stacked, stored, and viewed easily on retail shelves. Furthermore, folding cartons are eco-friendly and recyclable, which improves the long-term value of products without affecting the quality of the environment. Therefore, manufacturers and retailers' increasing usage of paper and paperboard folding cartons boost the market growth.

 Opportunities

  • Growth and expansion of the electrical and electronics sector

The electrical and electronics end-use sector is projected to grow significantly during the forecast period. Increasing technological advancement has been leading to the growth of various electronic products. Furthermore, the increasing expansion of compact-sized electrical products also provides lucrative opportunities for the manufacturer in the folding carton because the folding carton is the perfect packaging solution for compact-sized electrical products. Thus, the sturdy growth of the electrical and electronics industry is expected to impact the demand for folding cartons in the upcoming few years.

  • Increasing popularity of smart folding cartons

The growing popularity of smart folding cartons is also raising the market's growth. The demand for smart folding cartons is growing because of the increasing requirement for modern packaging applications such as clinical monitoring. It progresses in the printed electronics innovation, leading to the advancement in smart packaging. Furthermore, smart folding cartons allow merchants to track the package all over the delivery cycle, as they give customers product data using Q.R. codes for clients. Therefore, the growing popularity of smart folding cartons will create ample opportunities for market growth.

Restraints/ Challenges

  • Fluctuating prices of raw materials

Fluctuation in the price of raw materials, such as wood pulp prices, because of the demand-supply gap is expected to impact the growth of the folding cartons market negatively. This factor leads to a significant reduction in the profit margin of the manufacturers in the folding carton market which may hamper the market growth during the forecast period.

  • Presence of alternative options

The availability of folding cartons alternatives, such as thinner corrugated board, is expected to hamper the market's growth. Thinner corrugated board can be used as a substitute to add protective cushioning to fragile products without sacrificing print quality which may hamper the demand for folding cartons in the market.
