Corrugated box Price Trend for the Frist Half of 2022


The corrugated box industry has been reeling under pressure owing to the sharp increase in the costs of commodities and raw materials supply disruptions. In India, the price of feedstock kraft paper has reached an all-time high; its prices have exploded 90-100% since 2020 and almost 25% in the last couple of months alone. The higher feedstock prices amid the robust demand and trade bottlenecks caused the price trends of the corrugated box to inflate.

The situation in the Indian market has gone from bad to worse as many European countries have banned the export of some grades of waste paper to India. The imported waste paper price averaged 350 USD/MT during the given period. The high costs of waste paper and erratic supplies amid the exponential increase in shipping costs caused the prices of corrugated boxes to remain on the higher side of the scale.


One of the leading European manufacturers, DS Smith Paper, announced a price increase of around 150 Euro/MT for all recycled container boxes/corrugated boxes applicable all over Europe. According to the manufacturers, another double-digit rise in box price is expected by the autumn. The high energy and material costs owing to the Russia-Ukraine war and sanctions have raised the operating costs of paper mills by 263 Euro/MT. Many gas-operating paper mills have suspended production, further tightening the already constricted supply lines and affecting the prices of corrugated boxes.

North America

The price trends for corrugated boxes in the US domestic market aligned with the global outlook. The surging costs of raw materials and higher operating and shipping costs amid the booming downstream demand caused corrugated box prices to rise. The Producer Price Index for corrugated boxes went from 446.945 in January to 471.496 in June 2022, indicating a price hike.

The term "corrugated" refers to a particular kind of material that is made up of three different sheets of container board, or what is essentially thick paperboard. The middle sheet is rippled, while the two sheets on the outside are flat liners. These three sheets are joined with a thick, starchy glue that is frequently used in the packaging sector to produce a corrugated fiberboard sheet.

Production Processes:

  • Production of Corrugated Box from Corrugated Cardboard

In this process, the corrugated fibre boards are obtained with the help of steam-heat and corn starch glue, which are then cut into box blanks. The blanks are routed to a flexographic machine by skilled workers. Printing dyes and patterns made on tin sheets are loaded onto rollers in the flexographic machine. Each blank in the machine is cropped, printed, scored, folded, and glued to form a box of desired length.
