Global Edge Protector Market: Market dynamics

Shipping of material or exporting of items requires packaging materials, in order to prevent products from getting harmed. Primary packaging formats such as rigid boxes, corrugated boxes and folding cartons are widely used for primary and secondary packaging of consumer goods. Complex and prolonged supply chains result in damage to such rigid primary and secondary packaging formats. Edge protectors play a critical part in protecting primary packaging from getting damaged during supply chain and logistics operations. Edge protectors reduces the chance of loss that can be caused during replacement of the product. Edge protector provides an effective cushioning functionality for carrying and transporting heavy weight batches of consumer products. Edge protectors also provide internal support to packaging material, which also eases the transportation of products. One of the value added feature of edge protector is that it maintains the static strength of the material that does not allow the material to get compressed when packed in a box.

The global market for edge protectors is characterized by manufacturers supplying edge protectors in various product designs including angular edge protectors, flat edge protectors and custom made edge protectors.

The global market for edge protector is influenced by transport and shipping requirement in industrial markets.
