Round corrugated boxes are used as an addition to the existing case to create stability for the product. Moreover, round corrugated boxes are used for optimal protection as they are designed in such a way that they do not jeopardise the protection of the product.

These round corrugated boxes are also used for online retail companies owing to the fact that they provide protective packaging. Therefore, the outlook for the growth of the global round corrugated box market is expected to be largely positive during the forecast period.
