“Buy~” Express Carton Not Enough??? Japanese Corrugated Exports Boosted by Chinese Demand


This year's "Double 11" shopping festival opened ahead of schedule in China, but behind the constant online shopping is the massive demand for express packaging boxes, China's corrugated has been in short supply.  Recently, "Japan paper Association" statistics show that since the beginning of this year, affected by the increase in Chinese demand, The number of Japanese corrugated exports to China and other Asian countries is surging.

According to the latest statistics released by the Japan Paper Association. In September, Japanese exports of corrugated base paper were 101,000 tonnes, 2.5 times that of the same month last year. In the first three quarters of this year, Japan exported 618,000 tons of corrugated base paper, an increase of 90 percent over the same period last year.



Since July this year, Japanese corrugated exports began to increase significantly, especially to China, Thailand and Malaysia. Chinese processing companies are buying corrugated paper from Japan and other countries, boosting exports of Japanese corrugated paper, Nihon Keizai Shimbun reported. Some Japanese enterprises said that the recent export of corrugated base paper to China has increased significantly.

China imported about 4.176 million tonnes of corrugated paper in the January-August period, 2.4 times the volume in the same period last year, according to Nippon Paper Association statistics.

Some analysts pointed out to the Paper.cn (www.thepaper.cn) reporter that behind the increase in China's corrugated imports, there is an interaction between supply and demand.

First of all, with the development of digital economy and online shopping during the epidemic, the demand for express packaging increased significantly.China's express delivery volume has exceeded 60 billion units this year, with a year-on-year growth of 27.9 percent in the first three quarters, far exceeding the same period last year, the State Post Bureau said.  It is predicted that the express delivery business will peak during this year's Singles' Day, with the average daily volume reaching 490 million pieces. Behind the "buy buy buy" is a huge demand for express packaging, which mainly includes cartons, scotch tape, plastic foam, etc., of which corrugated paper is the main raw material of cartons.


On the other hand, on the supply side, China's waste paper import policy is gradually tightening, as corrugated raw material of waste paper imports decreased year by year. Waste paper accounts for about 60% of the fiber raw materials in China's paper industry, one-third of which are imported. China used to be the world's largest importer of waste paper, according to the China Paper Association.


owever, since 2017, China has adopted a series of policies, including the Implementation Plan for Promoting the Reform of The Solid Waste Import Management System by Banning The Entry of Foreign Garbage, making it clear that it will gradually achieve zero solid waste import by the end of 2020. Affected by relevant policies, China's waste paper imports have been shrinking year by year since 2017.In 2017, 2018 and 2019, they were respectively 2572, 1703 and 10.36 million tons, with year-on-year declines of 10%, 34% and 39%.


From January to August 2020, China imported about 3.837 million tons of waste paper, half the amount from the same period last year, according to the Japan Antique Paper Recycling Center.

It is worth noting that the export price of corrugated paper is actually cheaper than the domestic price in Japan.Even so, one large Japanese paper company told The Nihon Keizai Shimbun newspaper, "Although the earnings are low, in order to maintain production, it has to export. According to the national Bureau of Statistics' monitoring of market prices of nine categories and 50 important means of production in the national circulation sector, the price of corrugated paper reached 3666.7 yuan/ton in early October, up 370 yuan compared with the price of the same period last year, up 11.22 percent year-on-year.
