The folding carton packaging market size is predicted to be €171.35 billion by 2025

The not-so-humble carton box is everywhere and has become a global growth economy.

Cartons house our milk, our cereals, our cosmetics, our kids’ toys, our electronic items – and so many of the other everyday necessities that constantly arrive in our homes.

They’ve been around for eons and show no signs of disappearing.

In fact, demand for cartons is on the upswing. According to Grand View Research, the folding carton packaging market size is predicted to be €171.35 billion by 2025. And not all this growth is coming from the USA, UK or Europe. Thanks to a growing middle class, the Asia Pacific folding carton packaging market is expected to reach nearly $80 billion by 2025.

More and more companies are realizing that the functionality, affordability, and aesthetics of carton boxes are hard to beat.

In an age where caring for the environment is crucial, companies are reassessing their packaging choices. Sustainability is a must. Cardboard has always been a practical, eco-friendly option, but did you know that recent advancements have made folding carton boxes even more sustainable?

By adopting new printing techniques and lean manufacturing principles, we minimise waste generation and optimise resource usage.

The use of thinner raw materials has many advantages. Logically, fewer raw material is needed. This results in 16% more labels per roll, 13% fewer roll changes, and up to 25% less waste. Moreover, these materials take up less space, thus saving on storage and transport. By using thinner raw materials production is more productive, cost-effective, and sustainable than when using conventional raw materials. Don’t worry, these materials are of equal quality to your usual standard materials.

At Label Craft, and as part of the Asteria Group the possibilities are endless. With over 30 companies across Europe when you work with us our resources are literally EU wide.

It reads like a fairy tale, Accent’s growth story under the leadership of CEO Ives Declerck. In five years, the label specialist from Gullegem evolved into the Asteria Group, which now has 33 companies, from Estonia to Spain.

The strength? It lies in the DNA that all these companies share. Our customers have always been at the centre of what we do. Because of our scale, they can always be assured of continuity and capacity.
