Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Corrugated Boards Market
Many sectors, such as the chemicals & materials industry, faced unprecedented challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The implementation of COVID-19 safety protocols led to the shortage of raw material and labor, shutdown of factories, and other operational difficulties. Therefore, companies involved in the manufacturing of packaging products faced a contraction in sales during the initial months of the pandemic. The e-commerce sector witnessed a significant demand for various products, such as packaged food and beverages, groceries, daily essentials, consumer durable goods, owing to the shutdown of offline stores. With the rapidly growing e-commerce sector, even in the COVID-19 pandemic, there was a significant demand for corrugated boards from the e-commerce sector to package and transfer various goods. However, due to shortage of raw materials and shutdown of manufacturing units due to extended nationwide lockdowns, there was a huge demand and supply gap, which negatively impacted the corrugated boards market growth. Moreover, due to slowdown in logistics operations, the packaging industry faced a significant loss.
Businesses are gaining ground as the governments of various countries eased out the previously imposed restrictions. Moreover, the introduction of COVID-19 vaccine has eased out the situation, leading to a rise in business activities across the world. Moreover, logistics companies involved in the transportation of daily essential goods and food and beverage products propelled the demand for corrugated boards. Thus, the global corrugated boards market is expected to grow significantly in the coming years. The COVID-19 pandemic has spurred the development of the e-commerce industry. It has given customers access to a wide range of products, such as essential goods, convenience products, and safety goods. It has also allowed businesses to continue operating despite limitations and restrictions imposed on various industrial and transportation activities. The e-commerce industry has significantly contributed to the revival of logistics operations, which, in turn, is expected to bolster the growth of the corrugated boards market in the coming years.
