Factors such as acceleration in the global production, high disposable income, changing lifestyles in emerging countries such as China and India, rising Internet penetration, and Internet shopping have increased the need for using packaged products. This in turn stimulated the demand for protective packaging as it is required to prevent damages to products during handling, storing, and transporting through the supply chain.

The bigger players in the market have a strong distribution network across the world and the financial strength to sustain them. The same cannot be said about new entrants in the market. For the protective packaging market, it is essential to have a strong distribution network to enable timely delivery of the product to customers, whenever needed as well as implement all rules & regulations set by several regulatory bodies.

The players in the global protective packaging market are well-established. It is very difficult for new players to enter the market and compete with established players. Even end users prefer products from established players, rather than the new ones.
