The International Corrugated Case Association (ICCA) was formed in 1961. It exists for the purpose of providing its members those services and activities that can be most effectively conducted by an international organization. The services support and enhance the work of the association members and contribute to the well-being of the corrugated packaging industry worldwide. 

ICCA's objectives are to:
  • Promote and protect the general welfare of the worldwide corrugated container industry.
  • Support and supplement the programs and activities of various national and regional trade associations throughout the world which serve the corrugated container industry.
  • Collect and disseminate information about corrugated products, issues, services and resources throughout the world.
  • Gather, compile and disseminate statistical information and forecasts with respect to the worldwide corrugated container industry.
  • Be the global platform for addressing those needs of the worldwide corrugated container industry which can more effectively be handled by the association and its work groups than by individual companies.
Discussion Groups
ICCA has formed discussion groups to focus on global corrugated industry issues. Through these discussion groups, ICCA wishes to form a worldwide network to problem solve, share worthy information and possibly create a best practices arena to assist regional corrugated associations.

Global Summit

Since 1961, ICCA has sponsored a biennial Management Conference to allow worldwide corrugated industry executives to come together and share information, in a legal manner, on appropriate issues.

Since 2007, ICCA has joined with the World Containerboard Organisation (WCO) for the Global Corrugated/Containerboard Summit. The 2011 ICCA/WCO Global Summit was also co-located with the Fibre Box Association Annual Meeting and the American Forest and Paper Association Containerboard/Kraft Paper Sector Meeting.

The 2015 Global Summit was held April 13-17, 2015 at the Grand Hyatt in Taipei, Taiwan and the Mandarin Oriental in Shanghai, China.

ICCA Members can access presentations from past Global Summits here.

The 2017 Global Summit will be held in Brazil. Check back for more information in the coming months.

ICCA gathers, compiles and distributes corrugated shipment/production data. This is the most authoritative reflection of worldwide corrugated industry data.

ICCA members receive country- and region-specific production/shipment data reports every quarter. The association releases annual data to the general public, and then only by continent.

Global Corrugated Forecasts
ICCA funds forecasts to predict where the industry will head in the next few years. The worldwide forecast can be purchased for $5,000 and the regional forecast can be purchased for $2,000. Contact Peggy Lacy at to order your copy today.

International Guidelines
As certain issues in the corrugated industry span over country borders and across continents, ICCA issues guidelines to help its members implement specific programs. ICCA adopted guidelines for members to institute a global recycling symbol and a common footprint for produce. As needed, the association will assess whether additional issues need international guidelines.
