In recent years, the clamshell packaging has gained high traction, as it can be easily personalized to protect & accommodate appropriately to the size and shape of the product. Moreover, a few new developments have taken place in the global market, like using paperboard as a material in the production of clamshell packaging boxes is contributing to the market growth positively. For instance, in February 2022, WestRock Company announced its plan to construct a new corrugated box manufacturing facility in the Pacific Northwest. The new plant will strengthen and help the company cater to the rising need and demand for corrugated packaging, including corrugated clamshells.


The rapid emergence of the deadly coronavirus negatively affected the demand during the pandemic due to highly halted manufacturing and the massive reduction in the demand for non-essential and luxury products worldwide. The low demand from various industries, including the electronics and food industry, due to imposed lockdown by the government of various countries is further resulted in a slight decline in demand of clamshell packaging.
