What are the Challenges Faced by the SCK Paper Industry?

The lack of initiatives undertaken by governments, especially in underdeveloped countries to educate the masses about the benefits of using SCK paper may hamper the growth in future years. Besides, the easy availability of alternative packaging solutions, such as plastic materials, bulk bags, and flexible IBCs is projected to hinder the sales of SCK papers.

Why is Europe Emerging as an Opportunistic SCK Paper Market?

Europe is likely to remain at the forefront by procuring the largest SCK paper market share in the evaluation period. This growth is attributable to the rapid expansion of the e-commerce sector in the U.K., Germany, and Italy. Many companies are striving to reduce their total packaging expenditure by using this type of paper to pack multiple goods.

The rising usage of this type of paper to pack pet food in Europe is another significant factor that is likely to drive the market. Many companies in this region are also focusing on broadening their manufacturing capacities to enhance their business opportunity.

How is North America Contributing to Growth of the SCK Paper Market?

The ongoing premiumization of kraft packaging owing to the rising number of e-commerce platforms in the U.S. and Canada is a major factor that is set to fuel the North America SCK paper market growth in the assessment period. The demand for kraft material that can take high-quality graphics on very short print runs is rising at a fast pace in this region.

The implementation of stringent norms by governments of developed countries to ban the usage of plastic is another factor that is estimated to augur well for the regional market. Also, increasing advancements in wrapping and packaging applications, as well as the ongoing evolution of the packaging sector would influence growth in North America.

Market Competition

Many packaging companies are also acquiring small-scale raw material suppliers to broaden their product line and generate more shares.
