According to a report from Future Market Insights, the collapsible sleeve containers market was valued at $4.6 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a 4.6% CAGR through 2030. The report states overall demand declined in 2020 due to COVID-19 along with low awareness about packaging formats and environmental concerns over raw materials expected to hold back market growth, but predicts innovations in raw materials for sustainable bulk packaging solutions are likely to aid future growth in the industry.
