1. Overview of packaging and printing industry


   According to the classification of packaging materials, the packaging industry can be divided into paper packaging, metal packaging, plastic packaging, glass packaging, and other packaging industries. According to the statistics of China Packaging United in 2011, the paper packaging market accounted for 39%, followed by plastic packaging, metal packaging and glass packaging, which accounted for 34%, 17%, and 6% respectively.






   According to relevant data, the global packaging market has grown rapidly since its value of US$516 billion in 2007, and is expected to reach US$820 billion in 2016, with a compound annual growth rate of approximately 4.74%. Among them, paper packaging products will occupy an increasingly important position in the future packaging industry due to their low price, green environmental protection, and excellent processing performance.




   The "Guiding Opinions on Accelerating the Transformation and Development of my country's Packaging Industry" issued by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the Ministry of Commerce proposes to keep the growth rate of the packaging industry in sync with the growth rate of the national economy, and the scale of industrial development to meet the needs of supporting services. By 2020, the annual main business income of the packaging industry will reach 2.5 trillion yuan, and more than 15 enterprises or groups with an annual output value of more than 5 billion yuan will be formed. Listed companies and high-tech enterprises will increase significantly, and new industrialization with outstanding characteristics of the packaging industry will be actively cultivated. Industrial demonstration bases have formed a number of well-known brands with strong influence.

The five largest carton manufacturers in the United States have a combined market share of more than 70%, and only International Paper (International Paper) has reached 27%; the top three carton manufacturers in Taiwan have a combined share It also exceeds 50%. Although the domestic corrugated box market is large, its maturity is lower than the international level, and the market is very fragmented, with a concentration of less than 10%. With the professional development of carton manufacturing and the promotion of consumption upgrades, the differences in the industry will gradually widen. Leading enterprises will accelerate integration and mergers and acquisitions, and the survival of the fittest will be an inevitable trend for future market concentration.
