Unbleached Kraft Liners Hold over 70% Revenue Share

However, unbleached kraft liners continue to capture a voluminous chunk of market value. By 2023, unbleached kraft paperboards worth around US$ 13 Bn are expected to be utilized in packaging applications.

Manufacturers to Leverage Digital Printing Technology for Overall Efficiency
Kraft liner manufacturers must capitalize on cutting-edge printing technologies, such as digital printing technology, to realize better outcomes. Digital printing for packaging eliminates the need for separate plates for each print run, saving time and cost. This potential of producing short press runs economically and enhanced customization is fueling the popularity of digital printing technology in the packaging industry.
