Global Kraft Paper Market to Grow at 6.07% During 2022-2027, Impelled by Increasing Demand for Sustainable Packaging Materials

Published on Oct 03, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Kraft Paper Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global kraft paper market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.07% during 2022-2027. Kraft paper or paperboard is manufactured from chemical pulp produced in the kraft process. It is porous with high elasticity and high tear resistance, designed for packaging products that require excellent strength and durability. This kind of paper is more robust due to its reduced lignin content and high sulfur ratio. It doesn't involve extensive bleaching, which decreases the paper's strength and increases manufacturing costs. There are numerous benefits of using kraft paper for packaging. Since it doesn't add much weight to the package, the utilization of kraft paper decreases shipping costs while its course texture, durability, and flexibility provide improved protection to the items.
