The report, produced by third-party consultant Freedonia at the request of ICCA, provides a snapshot of current economic conditions corresponding to the regions reported in the ICCA Quarterly Statistics. Traditionally, ICCA has published a global 5-year corrugated forecast every two years. The Global Corrugated Forecast was de- layed in 2021 due to changing and turbulent economic conditions around the world. ICCA still intends to publish a complete Global Corrugated Forecast at a later date. The cur- rent report is provided in the interim as many countries continue to respond to the impact of the coronavirus and anticipated econom- ic recovery.
