Wholesale Boxes and Jars

Boxes and jars are multipurpose accessories for the storage, packaging, and shipping of goods.

Due to this frequent daily life use, the demand for boxes and jars is very high.

As per the Future Market Insights (FMI) report, the jars market was valued at $43.8 billion in 2023 and is projected to be $64.3 billion by 2033.

And when it comes to boxes, a huge market can lead to high revenue generation.

This indicates that the opportunity is ripe for a retailer planning to start or expand their business in any of these categories — be it boxes or jars.

Not only can retailers benefit from this category,

  • Boxes are a basic requirement in restaurants, hotels, shopping malls, and manufacturing industries (like electronics, shoes, etc.) for the packaging and shipping of goods.
  • Jars have wide applications in home kitchens and various industries like food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics & personal care, oils & lubricants, chemicals & fertilizers, etc.

But, before buying in bulk, you should have the know-how of different types of boxes and jars to stock the right inventory for your target customers or intended use.

Types of Boxes

Based on material and usability, here are some types of boxes:

Corrugated/Cardboard boxes

Made of paper pulp, these boxes can be used for the safe packaging of goods to avoid any damage during shipping. Examples of these boxes include shoe boxes, pizza boxes, carton boxes, etc.

Wooden Boxes

These boxes are used to store and safely transport goods. Also, they can be used:

  • To store and present wine bottles elegantly
  • To organize books or stationery items in homes and offices
  • To store precious jewelry and timeless accessories

Paperboard Boxes

Being lightweight and durable, these boxes are perfect to be used as personalized packaging options for medicines, cosmetics, frozen food, milk, and juices.

Chipboard Boxes

Made of recycled paper pulp, chipboard boxes are another cost-effective packaging option.

They are specially made for having lightweight grocery items such as cereals, tissue boxes, etc. – but not an ideal option for storing heavy goods.

Plastic Boxes

These boxes provide airtight packaging that can help preserve food quality and avoid contamination.

Another benefit of plastic boxes is that they help to showcase the product without even opening the packaging.

Rigid Boxes

Rigid boxes are very durable and have a premium appearance. These are used to package luxury products like iPhones, Rolex watches, high-end perfumes, etc.

These include:

  • Plastic jars
  • Glass jars
  • Metal jars
  • Paper jars

Among these, the glass jars (Mason Jars) segment is anticipated to witness a fast growth rate in the coming years. This is because glass jars provide the most sustainable packaging solution.

Also, unlike plastic jars, they do not leach chemicals down to contaminate food or beverages.


There are different shapes of jars including:

  • Round
  • Oval
  • Square
  • Hexagonal
  • Rectangular
  • Bottle shaped

Round or rectangular jars are highly preferred for home kitchen, restaurants, and other industries (cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, etc.).


By capacity, the jars have variations such as:

  • 4 oz
  • 10 oz
  • 16 oz
  • 32 oz
  • 50 oz
  • 64 oz

The jars within 10-50 oz capacity are mostly used due to consumer convenience and cost-effectiveness.
