Packing, in a way represents the extent of industrialization of a country. Packaging has been assuming importance in the context of growth of industries in general and consumer industries in particular. Paper is one of the most important materials that enter packaging. Paper is extensively used for making boxes, bags, sealing tapes, drums and tubes and as cushioning materials.
The materials now available for packaging are paper and paper products, metal containers and foils, glass, plastics-rigid and flexible, cellulose films, textiles including jute, woven plastics and wood. Among the packaging materials, paper and paper based products continue to occupy a predominant place. Paper based materials used for packaging include bleached and unbleached Kraft, corrugated and solid fiber boards, and a large variety of converted items like wax coated, plastic coated, bitumen coated etc. Corrugated and solid fiberboard boxes have replaced the conventional wooden boxes as transport containers because of their lightweight and satisfactory strength.
Corrugated boxes form an integral part of the packaging industry. These are found everywhere helping people shift both domestic as well as industrial items safely from one place to the other.
With increasing levels of organized retail and marketing of consumer goods in India, the packaging industry is shifting towards higher end packaging materials. As a consequence, demand of high end coated paper boards is experiencing significant growth despite constraint of having single supplier in the country.
