15-10-2021

The European Carton Makers Association (ECMA) published the 2021 Report about the market and the carton industry.

The European Carton Prospects Report 2021 shows how paper and board industry has been influenced and challenged by relevant events, such as Brexit and Covid-19 and the transition from plastic to fiber packaging.

 

The report shows data related to the European folding carton market. In this moment the cartonboard market is 6,312m tons by volume and €12.177m by sales value. In 2020 total cartonboard purchases in 2020 were 6784m tons.

 

European folding carton output grew by +4.7% in 2019 (the pre-Covid year), due to the impact of the “Green wave” and it was sustained at +3.9% overall during the Covid year, despite significant changes within many End-Use Markets.

 

In addition, the Reports shows the impact of Covid in the market, the sustainability trends and the change of the market structure.
