Corrugated Boxes - Recent Price Trend

Prices for corrugated boxes have been increasing at an estimated annualized rate of 3.0% in the three years to 2018, hurting buyer power. While rising demand has afforded suppliers the leverage to raise prices, a $50.00 per-ton price hike has largely been responsible for the price increase. The top suppliers of corrugated boxes typically institute $50.00 per-ton price hikes every two to three.

Corrugated Boxes - Total Cost of Ownership

The total cost of ownership for corrugated boxes is low. Corrugated boxes are commoditized products that require limited product research because the difference in quality from one supplier to another is minimal.
