Overview of the corrugated box packaging industry in Thailand

there are about 70 carton manufacturers with corrugated lines in Thailand. According to the data of the corrugated box and paperboard production association of Thailand, it is estimated that the annual production capacity of Thailand is about 2million tons. Although overproduction has been quite serious, there is a trend to further expand production. As the existing equipment is out of date and cannot meet the production demand, some companies will install new tile lines. Replacing new equipment can double their output. At present, there are about 400 cardboard processing plants. Some paperboard factories have now purchased tile lines and upgraded their production capacity - which further exacerbates the phenomenon of overproduction

at present, the corrugated box industry in Thailand is still concentrated in Bangkok and its vicinity. A small number of factories are located in northern and southern Thailand, mainly supplying local customers

in the past year, the soaring international oil price has impacted the economic growth rate of Thailand, which creates greater value for customers in the automotive industry, resulting in the Thai government having to introduce a series of measures to reduce the rising cost of imported oil. To improve the independent guarantee ability of special production equipment, consumer spending has declined due to rising gasoline prices, because families have reduced the use of cars and people stay at home, resulting in a decline in retail sales, which also led to a decline in the demand for corrugated packaging products. According to the data of the corrugated box and paperboard production association of Thailand, the consumption of corrugated boxes in Thailand in 2005 decreased by 5 percentage points from 1.8 million tons in 2004. I will further improve the innovation driving capacity of the copper based new material industrial base. You can see the current situation of the corrugated box packaging industry in Thailand through the perspective of the business situation of a packaging company in Thailand

packaging industry is one of the largest corrugated box enterprises in Thailand, and its production scale and business model are typical. Readers can further understand the current situation of the corrugated box industry in Thailand from its production and business status

Thailand packaging industry company has three factories, equipped with 1.6-meter tile wire and 1.8-meter tile wire. The production capacity is 600 meters/minute, and it can produce three-layer and five layer corrugated cardboard. The first factory of the company is in Bangkok, and the second factory is in Samut sakorn, about an hour's journey from Bangkok. The third plant is located in prachinburi in northern Thailand. The factory in Bangkok is a cardboard production plant, using the Japanese Uchida wa line (1.6 meters), with a design production speed of 120 meters/minute

samut sakorn's factory has two zheyanwa lines (1.4m and 1.8m) and pre printing equipment, and uses Cobden Chadwick stacking printing machine. The design production speed of the two tile lines is 150 m/min. The processing equipment includes four Tri Color printing machines of tianjinyu. About 300 employees work in this factory, and about 60% of the paperboard production is completed in this factory

prachinburi factory is equipped with yuliwa line (1.8 meters), and the cardboard production speed is 180 meters/minute. The cadre equipment adopts the equipment of Magui in the United States. There are two processing lines, Martin 924 and dro 1628, which can be engaged in three-color printing, while multi-color pre printing is completed by Cobden Chadwick printing machine. The company employs 180 employees, and about 70% of the production is completed in the factory. The remaining products are sold to other factories as cardboard

Veerachai, general manager of PCL in Thailand's packaging industry, said that when the prachinburi factory was opened in 1997, it was experiencing the outbreak of the Asian financial storm. But gradually, the business situation has improved. At present, the factory mainly supplies the Northeast market of Thailand and the eastern coastal market

in the factory of Thai packaging industry company, most of the raw materials for producing cartons are supplied by local suppliers. High quality base paper is imported, accounting for about 10% of the total demand of the factory. Imported paper includes white tissue paper, special substrates and kraft linerboard, which is not produced in Thailand. The factory sells 45% of paperboard products. The electrical and electronic industries account for about 30% of the consumption of finished printed cartons

veerachai monsintorn said: "In the past three years, the industrial growth rate was about 8% to 10%, but unfortunately, due to the rise in oil prices, economic growth fell by about 5% in 2005, and some companies were unable to expand production at all. The Asian tsunami did not have a serious impact on the corrugated box packaging industry, and the tsunami mainly had a great impact on the tourism industry. The impact on the corrugated box packaging industry mainly came from the oil price, because it weakened people's purchasing power. People's income To maintain the status quo, we have to bear more gasoline expenditure, thereby reducing the consumption expenditure of other products - especially the consumption of some luxury goods. "

the demand for three-layer paperboard in the Thai market accounts for 70% of the total demand. The current development trend is low gram paperboard, because current customers hope to have more value, and hope that the price of finished cartons will remain unchanged

in 2005, the company's total corrugated board output was about 67000 tons, a decrease of about 4% compared with 2004. Now, the market downturn is over, and a period of growth in the first few months of this year has made Thai corrugated box enterprises happy

in the factory of Thai packaging industry company, the three-layer paperboard is about 55% to 60% of the total output, and the rest is five layer paperboard

now, the Thai packaging industry company has set up a research and development department in its Samut sakorn factory as one of several new project plans to promote future business development. In addition, the company also reorganized the sales and marketing department, changing the previous marketing integration, and now it has become an independent department. The development of the marketing department will promote R & D and sales. The salesperson hopes that the production speed is faster and the product price is lower. In the past one or two years, the company has focused on human resources and management. In the past 10 years, the company has invested a lot of money to purchase production equipment, but it was later found that without good management and operation personnel, these equipment could not bring the maximum benefits. Therefore, the company now focuses on the construction of it and management team. Employee loyalty is very important. Under the new business strategy and plan, the company decided to develop small business opportunities to avoid price competition with other carton factories. Various new carton products are also planned, with the goal of entering the high-end market. The company is developing preprint products and hopes that the price of finished products can be increased. However, to promote these new products, a lot of promotional work needs to be done. In addition, other ways of adding value are also under consideration. At present, the company has supplied cartons to Seagate, a manufacturer of computer disk drives

Thai packaging industry company provides packaging products for the domestic market. At present, it has not been sold to Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia. Although some carton manufacturers have extended their tentacles to the markets of these countries, the Thai packaging industry company has no export business, and the market of Myanmar is very small, because its trade with the United States is now blocked. Laos is a socialist country with very slow economic growth. Cambodia's tourism industry has a certain foundation, but the manufacturing industry is relatively weak. Many foreign-invested enterprises put their capital into the Vietnamese market because Vietnam has more opportunities

in fact, the sales revenue of most Thai corrugated box manufacturers increased in 2004. The overall economic situation and GDP increased by 5% simultaneously. The corrugated box and paperboard production association of Thailand calculated that the historical growth trend of corrugated box industry in Thailand is about 1.5 to 1.8 times of GDP. In 2004, both domestic and export corrugated box consumption in Thailand increased

in Thailand, the share of electrical and electronic products in the carton market has increased in the past few years. It has remained stable and will continue to rise this year. Many manufacturers of electrical and electronic products have expanded their production scale, and their exports to Europe and the United States have also increased. Many of these companies are OEM manufacturers in Japan, Taiwan and South Korea. Products include LCD TVs, air conditioners, washing machines, refrigerators and microwave ovens

other major carton users include the food processing and beverage industries. For example, Heineken, Pepsi Cola and Thai whisky production plants. In addition, there are fishery and seafood packaging industries. This cannon LS10 hybrid head has many advantages. Some industries use cartons to pack canned and frozen products

Thailand's fast-growing automotive industry is considered to be an important market for the corrugated box industry in the future. A large number of Japanese and American manufacturers have established automobile assembly plants in eastern Thailand, attracting more than 700 parts manufacturers to establish factories to support automobile assembly lines. As the government plans to develop Thailand into "Detroit (Auto City) in Asia", the demand for corrugated box packaging products used for packaging auto parts will increase significantly

at present, the products produced by these factories are mainly supplied to the Thai market, but the next step is to export, because these enterprises are assembling exported cars, and their sales volume in this regard is increasing. Thailand is the largest auto exporter in Southeast Asia, and the demand for spare parts will increase in the future. Its corrugated box packaging demand is determined by the quantity of exported products

the business volume of Thailand's export industry is increasing - especially food and electrical appliances. Frozen seafood exports also grew rapidly. Canning companies import fish and tuna from other countries and then process them for re export. And a large number of poultry and meat products are exported

the development of the busy poultry processing industry is similar to that of the seafood industry. Due to the competitive labor cost, it can be used to develop poultry meat with high added value and export to Japan. With the economic development and the shortage of low-cost labor in Thailand, the government is planning to import labor from Myanmar and Laos. Most will work in construction, food processing and clothing. Thai people are now better educated, so they hope to find better jobs

about 80% of Thailand's industrial areas are located in Bangkok and its surrounding areas. The government is promoting southern and northeastern Thailand to become industrial zones. The factory in the South mainly produces frozen and canned seafood, and is engaged in rubber processing, such as rubber gloves. There are various industries in the northeast, such as electrical appliances, electronics and poultry processing
