The ASEAN folding cartons market has gained significant impetus from the robust growth of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and various other industries in ASEAN countries over the last couple of years. Since there is a free trade agreement between the ASEAN countries, most of the small and large scale industries need packaging materials in large volume, consequently boosting the demand for folding cartons.
The preference for folding cartons is anticipated to increase further, thanks to the cost benefits, these cartons provide during transportation and handling of products. The rising demand for packaged and takeaway food products is also projected to influence the market for folding carton in ASEAN countries. However, the availability of flexible plastic packaging materials and rigid boxes at comparatively low prices may limit the uptake of folding cartons to some extent over the forthcoming years, reflecting negatively on this market.
