Demand for OCC, An Outlook for 2024
Ryan Fox, Corrugated Market Analyst, Bloomberg Intelligence
You can't have old corrugated cartons without NEW corrugated cartons. In the US, that means boxes come from domestic consumption as well as from imported goods. We'll review what box demand and imports looked like in 2023, present scenarios for 2024, and offer some thoughts about the next few years of box demand.
Ryan spent 10 years in packaging sales before jumping into industry reporting in 2020 with Bloomberg's Green Markets. He has since focused on forming relationships with box producers and building supply-and-demand models to better understand what moves the market. Ryan's love of data led to a variety of opportunities in the corrugated industry, beginning in 2010 at a small AICC member sheet plant in North Carolina. He was recruited to an integrated company in late 2014.
