Over the years, the mounting consumer inclination towards convenient, light-weight product packaging solutions has forced the packaging industry to set forth well-structured paper & paperboard packaging solutions with a goal to tap the retail industry. Among these packaging types, regular slotted containers (RSC) made from sheets of corrugated cardboard are the most promising packaging type and are increasingly used in the secondary packaging of goods across a varied range of industries.
The half slotted carton / box / container is a largely preferred variant of regular slotted containers (RSC), owing to the growing need of removing or repeatedly replacing the one-side flap cover in order to display the final product. Half slotted cartons are usually customized as per the client requirements and are delivered with lidding films as the top cover. Such half-slotted cartons are largely been used for shelf packaging as well as the shipping/transportation of package goods and other applications.
In line with key developments in the packaging / converting industries, the market for corrugated packaging has seeing remarkable growth. Growing demand for sustainable packaging from fresh foods and beverages, home & personal care goods and consumer goods, coupled with the remarkable progress of the e-commerce industry, is accelerating the market growth of half slotted cartons across the world.
