Meanwhile New York-based Persistence Market Research (PMR), recently forecasted annual growth in the corrugated packaging market of 4%, with the market being worth an estimated $174m by 2020.As with Ecommerce, the growth will be global, however North America and the United States in particular is expected to see some of the biggest increase in the use of corrugated packaging with some 90% of products that are transported being packed in corrugated packaging.
