Why Cardboard Appeals
Email correspondence, digital marketing and cloud storage are amongst the reasons that paper production has gradually declined since the rise of the internet. The paper product bucking the trend is corrugated cardboard. The rapidly expanding e-commerce industry has driven the growing demand for robust, yet lightweight, corrugated cardboard boxes.
According to the latest data on Paper Manufacturing and Recycling in 2016, the market for cardboard continues to grow. As an increasing number of retailers move towards cardboard packaging for consumables, it has led to a positive outlook for the year ahead.
Simple yet Effective Packaging Solution
Cardboard is a low cost material that can be cut and constructed into a wide variety of shapes and sizes, a box manufacturer can create bespoke packaging solutions for an extensive variety of goods. In addition it is easy to print and finish to client specifications, making it as viable for high end luxury goods or basic packaging for secure transit.
In addition many companies have been working with box manufacturers to improve their packaging designs. Utilising cardboard engineering skills and technology can result in higher quality solutions that are equally durable, yet require less material. Lightweight packaging reduces the cost of transportation and storage, reduces the environmental impact and satisfies customers.
A growing emphasis on sustainability has also shone a light on the properties of corrugated cardboard. In 2016, 4 million tonnes of corrugated cardboard were recycled in the UK. The majority will be used to produce boxes in 2017, minimising the need for raw materials.
