What is corrugated paper

Corrugated paper is a type of paper that is made from three layers of paper: a wavy inner layer, or corrugate, sandwiched between two flat outer layers. The corrugate layer is made by gluing together two or more sheets of paper and then pressing them together to create the wavy pattern. The flat outer layers are then glued to the corrugate to create the finished corrugated paper product.

Corrugated paper is used to make a variety of products, including cardboard boxes, packaging materials, and display boards. It is a strong and durable material that is resistant to tearing and is often used to protect and transport goods. Corrugated paper is also lightweight and easy to cut and shape, making it ideal for use in packaging and other applications.

The production of corrugated paper involves several steps, including the production of the raw paper, the gluing of the corrugate layer, and the cutting and shaping of the finished product. Corrugated paper is an important industrial product that is used in many different industries, including packaging, construction, and retail.

Corrugated paper is made from three layers of paper: a wavy inner layer, or corrugate, sandwiched between two flat outer layers. The corrugate layer is made by gluing together two or more sheets of paper and then pressing them together to create the wavy pattern. The flat outer layers are then glued to the corrugate to create the finished corrugated paper product.

The raw paper used to make corrugated paper is typically made from wood pulp, which is produced by breaking down wood fibers using a chemical pulping process. The wood pulp is then mixed with water and chemicals to create a slurry, which is formed into sheets and pressed to remove excess water. The resulting sheets of paper are then used to create the corrugate layer of the corrugated paper.

 

How big is the corrugated paper market

The global corrugated paper market is significant, with demand driven by the widespread use of corrugated paper in the packaging and construction industries. According to a report by Mordor Intelligence, the global corrugated paper market was valued at approximately USD 222.8 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 280.3 billion by 2025, at a compound annual growth rate of 4.3%.

The Asia-Pacific region is the largest market for corrugated paper, followed by Europe and North America. The growth in the Asia-Pacific region is driven by the increasing demand for packaging materials, while the demand in Europe and North America is driven by the construction and retail sectors.

Overall, the demand for corrugated paper is likely to remain strong in the coming years due to its wide range of uses and the growing demand for packaging materials. However, the corrugated paper market is subject to fluctuations in price and supply due to factors such as raw material costs, economic conditions, and competition from other materials.
