Malaysia Corrugated Packaging Market Trends

  • Shift towards lightweight and customized corrugated packaging: The demand for more sustainable and environment-friendly packaging solutions has been steadily increasing in Malaysia over the past few years. Manufacturers are under pressure to reduce the amount of material used in packaging without compromising on protection and functionality. This has led to a significant rise in the demand for lightweight and customized corrugated packaging options. By utilizing new design techniques and materials, corrugated packaging manufacturers can now offer solutions that use 15-20% less paper fiber while still meeting the packing needs of their customers. This allows businesses to lower packaging costs as well as their carbon footprint. It has also opened up opportunities to produce packaging targeted for specific products or of non-standard dimensions, helping brands better utilize space and shelf presence. This will encourage more companies to adopt eco-friendly packaging and push corrugated product developers to innovate even lighter designs. Those that can meet these rapidly evolving needs of the market are projected to see continued growth.
  • Advancements in corrugated packaging machinery: Advancements in corrugated packaging machinery is having a significant influence on the Malaysia corrugated packaging market. The new generation machines are much more automated and come equipped with advanced digital technologies that are improving both efficiency and sustainability in production processes. For example, new fully automated corrugated sheet production lines with integrated management software allow operators to digitally monitor and control the entire manufacturing workflow from raw material feeding to packaging of finished goods. This level of automation and digitization streamlines operations, reduces human errors, and improves overall equipment effectiveness. It maximizes production output while minimizing material wastage from the factory floor. For instance, as evidenced by the Ministry of Health Malaysia reports, advanced packaging had played a vital role in the successful transportation of COVID-19 vaccines across the country in 2021. In summary, technological progressions are positively impacting production capabilities as well as boosting sustainability and competitiveness of the Malaysia corrugated packaging market.
