E-commerce is estimated to increase by 500% by 2020. According to e-commerce statistics compiled by TNS Gallup, the amount Finns spend on online shopping has increased by 25% in retail over the past three years. In some product groups, the growth rate has been considerably higher: 60% in shoes and as much as 90% in home improvement and in pet and animal supplies.
This growth is increasing demand for packaging while also creating new technical requirements. Corrugated board boxes are ideal for products purchased online.
