India is among the fastest growing economies. With increasing prosperity, both the desire and the need for modern packaging solutions emerges.

Paper packaging is a versatile and cost-efficient method to protect, preserve, and transport a wide range of products. Attributes, like lightweight, biodegradability, and recyclability, are the advantages of paper packaging that make them an essential component in today’s modern life.

The largest end-user industries for the global packaging demand arises from food, beverages, consumer products and industrial/bulk packaging.

The rising consumer consciousness, regarding sustainable packaging, along with the strict regulations being imposed by various environmental protection agencies, regarding the use of environment-friendly packaging products, is driving the market for paper packaging. The growing demand for flexible paper packaging due to the rise in consumer awareness regarding the harmful effects of plastic on the environment is helping the paper packaging industry to grow.

A study by trade and commerce trade association Assocham and global consulting firm EY revealed that the packaging industry in India is anticipated to reach $73.6bn by the 2020 financial year (FY2020), due to India’s growing population and income levels.

The conclusions drawn are therefore supportive of a continued expansion of the paper packaging demand globally, especially in the high growth regions of the world.
