Domestic corrugated box transportation and packaging will develop into sales of commodity packaging. Corrugated boxes are used for outer packaging of goods and transportation packaging. It seems that carton manufacturers have become an agreed rule, forming a traditional concept and thus constraining the development of the corrugated box industry.
With the increasing development of food, home appliances, tobacco and alcohol, medicine, electronic equipment, and light industrial products, the demand for cartons with corresponding strength, exquisite decoration and advertising functions is increasing day by day.
At present, the production and use of watermarked corrugated paper boxes in Guangdong, Shanghai, Jiangsu and Zhejiang are quite common. The products produced are exquisite and full of artistic characteristics. Although there are not many users at present, it has the advantages of exquisiteness and strong three-dimensional effect. It is believed that it will be popular everywhere in the near future.
The development trend of the corrugated carton industry is expected to develop in the following areas for some time in the future
1. Corrugated boxes are gradually shifting from transport packaging to sales packaging. With the development of the commodity society and the improvement of consumers’ living standards, the market’s demand for corrugated boxes with higher strength and good advertising functions is increasing. The requirements for fine printing are getting higher and higher. This is also an opportunity for the development of the carton industry. This development trend puts forward higher requirements for the strength of carton boxes and boxes with lighter weight. Printing has developed from monochrome to multi-color dots. The printing graphics are clear, beautiful, and the bright dots are strong and the three-dimensional appearance is novel. This puts forward higher requirements on the quality of base paper and cardboard, printing equipment, inks, and flexible plates. With the development of flexographic plates and supporting equipment, the process of carton printing has been reduced, and the use of environmentally friendly water-based inks has been reduced. The carton technology has also been developed from the nail box to the glue box. The kraft box board paper printing surface is gradually printed by the white board and the color surface. The replacement of cartons has gradually realized the integration of internal and external sales and packaging.
2. The corrugated box industry is actively developing new products and expanding service channels. Corrugated carton enterprises should promptly adjust their service targets to improve traditional corrugated boxes and develop new products and varieties, otherwise it will be difficult to gain a firm foothold in the more intense domestic and international markets in the future. The traditional service object of corrugated boxes is outer packaging and transportation packaging. Innovative corrugated paper packaging should be developed with the pioneering and innovative spirit of scientific and technological development. For example, the development of corrugated cardboard trays, honeycomb cardboard, supermarket shelves, cushioning materials, office supplies, paper toys, paper furniture, etc., expand the application fields of corrugated paper products and expand the application fields of paper to wood, paper to plastic, paper to replace bamboo, and paper to replace wood. Expansion of the packaging field of replacing metal cans and paper bottles. Paper packaging belongs to the category of green packaging. It has not only use value but also recycling value. As the whole society attaches importance to environmental protection, carton boxes will be more favored by users and consumers. Therefore, the corrugated carton industry should seize this favorable opportunity to expand the service targets of carton boxes.
3. Vigorously develop foldable packaging boxes with broad market prospects. As a new type of environmentally friendly packaging product with paper, the foldable packaging box has a wide range of applications. It makes the product beautiful and convenient to carry, and it is loved by consumers. Foldable box packaging is currently very popular in the international market, and its promotion has a certain role in promoting the standardization and standardization of commodities in the Chinese market. Small assembled foldable packaging boxes are mainly used for the packaging of food and health products, fruits, vegetables, eggs, frozen aquatic products, small household appliances, instruments and meters, toys and other small and light commodities. Many varieties of this new type of packaging box can play a good role in protecting the product.
