North America Coroplast Market Trends

The North America coroplast market size was estimated at USD 402.90 million in 2023 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.9% from 2024 to 2030. Coroplast refers to a type of lightweight, fluted plastic sheet majorly composed of polypropylene and polyethylene resins. Properties of coroplast, such as resistance to corrosion, chemicals, and weather conditions, coupled with reusable product adoption graphics and signage applications, are expected to contribute to the market growth.

North America Coroplast Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

According to the National Association of REALTORS, U.S. housing sales are forecast to rise by 13% in 2024. Rising population in U.S. inclusive of citizens as well as immigrants is significantly influencing housing sales and contributing to real estate sector growth. According to United States Census Bureau data, building permits for January 2024 were 1,470,000 housing units. This was 8.6% above the January 2023 value. With a rise in building permits, demand for signage boards for real estate advertisement is expected to rise, thereby influencing demand for coroplast.

Key players in the market are implementing various strategies to enhance their presence and competitiveness. These strategies are launching new products to cater to growing consumer requirements for coroplast material, engaging in mergers & acquisitions to consolidate market share, forming partnerships, and expanding geographically to tap into new areas and distribution channels. For instance, in October 2023, Baystar, a division of Bayport Polymers LLC, introduced its Bay 3 polyethylene unit in Pasadena, TX, signaling a new era in high-performance PE production. Utilizing proprietary Borstar technology from Borealis, the facility marks the first of its kind in North America and doubles Baystar's production capacity.

Consumers and businesses in the U.S. have become more environmentally conscious, thus contributing to the demand for eco-friendly packaging materials like coroplast. Coroplast can be recycled and offers a more sustainable alternative to traditional cardboard packaging.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market is highly fragmented, with a significant presence of global and local companies offering various types of coroplast. Prominent players operating in the market include Coroplast (Inteplast Group), SABIC, Liberty Plastics Inc, CoolSeal USA, Emco Industrial Plastics, Laminacorr Industries Inc, New-Tech Packaging, Minnesota Diversified Industries (MDI), and Commercial Plastics Depo.

North America Coroplast Market Concentration & Characteristics

The regulatory landscape can be influenced by several factors such as recyclability and fire safety. Regulations promoting recycling and sustainability could indirectly impact coroplast market. As coroplast is recyclable, highlighting this aspect and ensuring compliance with recycling regulations might be important for manufacturers.

Corrugated board, PET sheet, and polycarbonate sheet among others are product substitutes to coroplast. However, versatility, machinability, durability offered by coroplast positions impact of product substitutes at low to moderate level.

Material Insights

Based on material, the market is segmented into polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), and others. Polypropylene (PP) segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 59.57% in 2023. PP is recognized for its low density and versatility. According to Singhal Industries Pvt. Ltd article published in March 2023, polypropylene sheets are widely used in different industries due to their versatility and benefits.

Polyethylene (PE) is expected to progress with the fastest CAGR of 9.5% during the forecast period. PE offers improved flexibility compared to PP. This could be desirable for applications where some degree of bending is required without compromising overall strength. According to the Liberty Plastics, Inc. article published in May 2023, high-density polyethylene (HDPE), recognized for its strength and resistance to high temperatures, finds prevalent use in packaging, construction, and automotive sectors where durability is critical. On the other hand, low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), known for their flexibility and moisture resistance, are favored options in packaging and agricultural applications. The adaptability of PE allows manufacturers to customize corrugated plastic sheets to meet the varying requirements of different industries, offering lightweight, cost-efficient, and durable solutions across various industries.

Application Insights

Based on application, the market is segmented intographic arts and signage. Graphic art dominated the market and accounted for a share of over 62.0% in 2023. Graphic arts represent a crucial application area, encompassing various uses such as printing, advertising, and promotional displays. Coroplast, renowned for its versatility, boasts properties, such as durability, lightweight construction, and moisture resistance, which makes it an optimal choice for various graphic arts and design applications.
