Rigid paper containers are paper-based packaging solutions that include boxes, trays, tubes, liquid cartons, and clamshells. Rigid paper containers can be manufactured using either paperboard or containerboard. Rigid paper containers made up of containerboard consist of two grades of board: linerboard and corrugating medium. Rigid paper containers made up of linerboard are used for creating the faces of the corrugated box while the corrugating medium makes up the rippled middle layer known as flutes.
Material that is not corrugated, which includes cereal boxes, pharmaceutical cartons, and liquid cartons, among others, falls under the category of paperboard. Rigid paper containers offer easy printability and hence are considered ideal for printing product information as well as branding & marketing information. The rigid paper containers market is expected to have a positive outlook over the forecast period due to the rising importance of visually communicative packaging.
