Solid Board Market is projected to reach US$ 13.2 Bn by 2029

Solid boards are in higher demand due to their increased use in packaging and promotional products like as boxes, layer pads, and point-of-purchase displays. Solid boards are commonly used to make boxes because they have a flat and compact structure and are easier to print. Solid boards are also manufactured from recycled paper and are 100% recyclable.

Key drivers driving the growth of the solid board market are point-of-sale appeal and cost-effective packaging solutions, coupled with sustainability offered by solid boards over alternatives such as plastic or metal products. Moreover, rising consumer preference for eco-friendly products has boosted the demand for solid boards for manufacturing packaging & promotional products on a global scale.

On the back of these factors, the solid board market is projected to register a CAGR of 4.3% during the forecast period, and reach a valuation of US$ 13.2 Bn by 2029.
