Consolidation in the European Corrugated Paper Industry

The European corrugated packaging industry, consisting of many players of all sizes, has entered a period of consolidation.

Report summary

Fragmentation leads to consolidation

The highly-fragmented European market knows plenty of drivers that support consolidation, ranging from the growing requirements by offtakers to potential succession issues for privately-owned players. There have been 109 notable M&A deals in the industry since 2010. Smurfit Kappa, DS Smith, and Mondi have been the most active publicly-listed acquirers, but many larger and smaller privately-owned players have also become active. Also, Smurfit Kappa and DS Smith are increasingly looking for opportunities overseas.
