Based on the material, recycled corrugates held the largest market share throughout the historical period. The segment growth can be attributed to the sustainability benefits associated with recycled corrugated boxes and their extensive usage in the packaging of lightweight products such as consumer electronics, cosmetics, and fast-food items, when compared to virgin corrugated boxes that are more suitable for heavy duty products.

Based on the end-use, the food and beverages sector is the major consumer of corrugated boxes. The product demand is increasing as it offers several advantages, including lightweight, structural rigidity, product safety, and convenience. Also, since the boxes can be reused and recycled, they are gaining increased traction from users.
