Double wall cases, also known as 5-ply corrugated boxes are relatively durable secondary packaging solution over single wall cases, making them highly suitable for packaging of heavy products, or making large capacity boxes. Corrugated boxes are the most widely preferred secondary packaging solution in the almost entire manufacturing industry, representing a tremendous revenue opportunity for the expansion of double wall cases market across the globe. Although the double wall cases possess higher strength as compared to single wall cases, the double wall cases adhere to basic design as the stiffness of the double wall board do not allow enough flexibility to shape the double wall cases into different shapes. Thus, higher flexibility offered by single wall cases has provided a win over double wall cases, restraining the growth of global double wall cases demand.
Global Double Wall Cases Market Dynamics
The end-user industries need to reduce investment in the storage and handling of the products to provide finished products to the consumers in minimum possible price. Reducing investment in secondary packaging is one of the crucial steps, which is attained by using a higher content of recycled fiber in double wall cases, or by reducing the wall thickness for less consumption of fiber in double wall cases to obtain the case at low manufacturing cost. On the other hand, the prices of raw material for the production of double wall cases have witnessed a growth of around 3% over the last five years, affecting the price of double wall cases, and impacting the market negatively. Moreover, the demand for shelf-ready trays is rising rapidly, affecting the demand for double wall cases.
