Definition of cardboard box index

An index that measures the production of cardboard boxes in order to determine industrial output.

Considered by some to be a fairly accurate market indicator, the index is seen as one way of measuring the production of consumer goods, given that nearly all consumer products are delivered around the world in cardboard boxes.  Higher demand for boxes means higher demand for consumer goods. [1]
