Paperboard to Remain Attractive Material Type Segment
The segments into which the global mobile phones packaging market is divided based upon packaging type are rigid boxes, folding cartons, flexible films, insert trays, thermoformed blisters, and other mobile phone packaging products. Of them, folding cartons are expected to continue to be significant backed by the continued preference for mid-range mobile phones. However, the segment of rigid boxes is predicted to hold on to its dominant position over the forecast period between 2017 and 2027.

This is mainly because paperboard can be recycled that not only provides recycling opportunities to manufacturers of mobile phone packaging but is environmentally sustainable as well. Thermoformed blisters are the material of choice of cell phone manufacturers that are looking for innovative ways to stand out on retail shelves.
However, plastic based packaging is expected to rise at a below average CAGR of 3.9% between 2017 and 2027. This is mainly due to limited scope of applications of plastic based packaging.
