Operators in the Cardboard Packaging and Paper Bag Manufacturing industry produce a range of packaging solutions, such as corrugated boxes, folding cartons and customised cardboard containers. Over the past five years, a healthier consumer backdrop and the growth of online retailing has spurred demand for the industry's products, offsetting the increase in import penetration and domestic price competition. Growth over the past five years has been minimal, however, as the industry started the period from a relatively high base. Overall, industry revenue is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 0.7% over the five years through 2015-16, reaching £4.64 billion.
Operators in this industry manufacture cardboard packaging and paper bags and sacks. Cardboard packaging includes corrugated and solid cardboard boxes, folding cartons and customised cardboard containers.
