DIGITAL CORRUGATED EXPERIENCE - ABOUT

THE RESEARCH

Corrugated board is a key application. Smithers Pira data shows that at $270 billion in 2016, it is worth 31% of the total packaging market and represents the next material to experience the digital revolution. A value of $1.44 billion in 2016 for digitally printed corrugated testifies to the amount of R&D and initial installations that will provide the foundation for an acceleration to over $2.35 billion by 2020.

Digital is becoming a complementary process to traditional analogue methods, enabling box plants and display makers to undertake different types of work that previously had been hard to manage or to justify on cost and lead times, such as prototyping, short run, versioning or customisation of boxes and displays. Read our blog to find out more. 

In today’s competitive, consumer-led market - with increasing demands - packaging can make all the difference in selling a product. Digital printing technology is transforming the corrugated board market for POS and packaging by adding value and customisation to any product. 

Why digital?

Brand owners increasingly demand:

  • Short run production
  • Customisation
  • Track and traceability
  • Prototyping / Versioning

Converters and box-plants are adopting digital printing as a complementary technology to their existing analogue workflow - to service brand owners both large and small who seek opportunities to achieve eye-catching in-store and in-home delivery options via e-commerce.

WHY CORRUGATED?

WHY CORRUGATED?

Digital print technology is growing in adoption in both labels and folding carton sectors of the packaging landscape. Digital print on corrugated represents a strong opportunity for small to medium converters and box-makers as well as large format print service providers

Why now?

There is an immediate need for converters and box plants to understand and adopt digital technology, as well as for large format print service providers to understand the box-making technology workflow.

There is no significant event in 2018 other than FESPA Digital Corrugated Experience that offers you the chance to reach and engage with these groups.
