NEW YORK, Sept. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The e-commerce sector, which already valued $3.5 trillion in 2019, continues to expand, on account of the heavy discounts available on online shopping portals, increasing penetration of smartphones and usage of mobile data, and rapid developments in the delivery ecosystem. As a result, the globalcorrugated boxes market will grow from $180.9 billion in 2019 to $284.6 billion in 2030, at a 4.3% CAGR between 2020 and 2030.
E-commerce offers physical retailers a cost-effective alternative to pouring money to build their own delivery infrastructure.

For instance, during the Amazon Prime Day in July 2019, more than 175 million orders were received by the tech giant around the world.
The COVID-19 situation has offered a boost to the corrugated boxes market, by significantly raising the demand for essential items, such as food products, hygiene-related products, and medical supplies. Moreover, people are refraining from traveling to physical stores, choosing to shop online instead, which has also increased the demand for corrugated boxes. However, as the industry is mostly unorganized, local players have been at the forefront of supplying the boxes during this time.
