Segmentation Analysis 

By Flute Type 

The Australian Microflute Market is expected to grow at a CAGR during the forecasting period (2021-2028).

The thickness of N-Flute is low as compared to E-Flute and F-Flute. The thickness of N-Flute is 0.5 mm only. N-Flute is widely accepted in the packaging industry since it has higher stacking strength than carton board and surface similar to a solid board.

N-Flute is ideally used as a packaging material in applications such as Retail Ready Packaging (RRP), POS display, Bag-in-Box, for Consumer Packaging (cosmetics, food, and nutraceuticals), and E-Commerce markets.

In the food and beverage, cosmetics, and pharma industries, N-type micro-flute is becoming a material of choice because of their enhanced printability and folding capabilities and still offering a more rigid packaging than E-flute. Since N-type cardboards have many flutes per foot, they allow more accurate folding operations.

Food & drinks are the leading segments by market share for N-type micro-flute. The rise in demand for micro flute packaging materials in processed food and fresh produce packaging is expected to drive the segment growth, increasing consumer awareness about enhanced printability and folding capabilities, further making micro flutes the material of choice.

Besides, N-Flute allows direct litho printing since it is the most OK fluted board in the market and has been specifically engineered. This flute is best suited for the boxes and cartons, point of sale, internal carton dividers and trays, Charity collection boxes, and mailing cartons.

Moreover, most of the country's companies are showing interest in N-Flute due to its eco-friendly nature. This is because the board offers far less fibre consumption, lighter packaging, even saving on postage, and even the smaller volume of the packaged goods for warehousing and transportation and still provides excellent protection for the product.

N-Flutes have wide opportunities in the end-user such as food packaging, cosmetic packaging, retail-ready packaging, and E-Commerce. The rapidly growing eCommerce market in Australia is expected to drive the micro flute market, especially the N-Flute market, during the forecast period.

Australia is the 11th largest eCommerce market globally, and revenue is expected to reach more than USD 30 billion by 2024. The largest Australian eCommerce platforms/sites are eBay (AU) (69 million monthly visits), Amazon (AU) (22.5 million), Woolworths (20.4 million), JB Hi-Fi ((13.3 million), Big W (11.9 million), Coles (10.7 million), Kogan (10.2 million), Officeworks (9.45 million), Chemist Warehouse (9.1 million), and Catch (8.95 million).

Besides, trending mobile eCommerce will generate a significant market demand for micro flute packaging in the country. With mobile penetration at close to 100%, mobile payments and purchasing are major strategies for all retailers. According to a recent report by PayPal, 26.4% of all eCommerce transactions occur via mobile phone, representing a 28.8% year-on-year increase and dwarfing transactions made over laptop and desktop, which have been shrinking over the last couple of years.
