Corrugated cardboard (box) is recognized worldwide as a green environment-friendly packaging product. However, with the increasing environmental protection concept of people, coupled with the increasing scarcity of global forest resources and the increasing shortage of land and water resources, the harvesting of timber for the production of paperboard cartons is increasingly restricted in many countries, resulting in the corrugated box industry The source of the fiber is severely affected.
At present, the annual demand for corrugated paper products worldwide has reached 100 million metric tons, of which the United States accounts for about 31%. Europe includes about 25% in Eastern Europe, about 10% in China, and 9% in Japan. In developed countries such as Europe, the United States, Japan, etc., due to high domestic manufacturing costs, the outward shift of manufacturing industries, and the reduction of its customer base, the annual growth rate of corrugated paper products may be low or even have the possibility of negative growth. Conversely, there is more room for growth in corrugated paper products in countries with low emerging manufacturing costs such as China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam.
