Paper Coating Materials Market By Material Type (Calcium Carbonate, Kaolin Clay, Titanium Dioxide, Starch, Others), By Coating Type (Single-side, Double-side), By End Use (Binding, Stationary, Packaging, Corrugated Boxes, Others): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021-2031
The global paper coating materials market size was valued at $2.1 billion in 2021, and projected to reach $3.4 billion by 2031, with a CAGR of 4.8% from 2022 to 2031.
Coated paper is a glossy or matte finish paper that is coated on one or both sides with a mixture of clay and carbonates, resulting in a high-quality surface that can be used for a variety of applications such as printing of magazines, books, photos, advertising materials, and other high-quality products, packaging, and labelling. The coated paper has a smooth, high-quality surface that is suitable for use in high-end printing applications and packaging industry.
One of the major factors driving the market growth include use of coated paper in the packaging industry. Shift in global trend toward use of eco-friendly products, as well as ban on plastic packaging in the foods & beverages industry has led to rise in demand for bio-based and biodegradable packaging materials. This trend is expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period.
Furthermore, with growing environmental concerns and government initiatives to reduce plastic consumption across various countries, the coated paper market is expected to grow further during the forecast period. On the other hand, rise in demand for biopolymer paper coating material is anticipated to create several opportunities, leading to growth of the paper coating materials market.
In terms of cost, the coated paper market is expected to face a stiff competition from uncoated papers. This factor is expected to have an adverse effect on the market growth. Furthermore, growth in trends of digitalization and e-commerce as well as green campaigns such as save paper save tree, are some of the key factors that hamper the market growth.
The global paper coating materials market is segmented on the basis of material type, coating type, end use, and region. By material type, the market is divided into calcium carbonate, kaolin clay, titanium dioxide, starch, and others. By coating type, it includes single-side and double-side. By end use, it is classified into binding, stationary, packaging, corrugated boxes, and others.
Region wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. Presently, Asia-Pacific accounts for the largest share of the market, followed by North America and Europe.
Major companies profiled in this report include BASF SE, Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) Sinarmas, DuPont, Celanese Corporation, Imerys SA, Omya AG, Penford Corporation, Michelman Inc., Nippon Paper Industries Co., Ltd, and Eastman Chemical Company. Additional growth strategies such as expansion of production capacities, acquisition, partnership, and research & innovation in bio-degradable coating materials application on paper propel growth of the global paper coating materials market.
COVID-19 is an infectious disease that originated in Hubei province of the Wuhan city in China in late December. The highly contagious disease, caused by a virus, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, is transmitted from humans to humans. Since the outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to almost 213 countries around the globe with the World Health Organization declaring it a public health emergency on March 11, 2020.
Covid-19 pandemic outbreak led manufactures encounter several challenges leading to crisis among paper and packaging producers. Self-isolation has resulted in short supply and various manufacturing units are sourcing supply chains away from China. The impact of covid-19 on the packaging industry is expected to have mixed impact and it depends on their portfolios to different end-users of packaging. Most packaging manufacturers supply their products and services to important industries including pharmaceutical packaging, packaged food, labelling of hand sanitizers and disinfectants, and packaging of soaps, detergents and hand washes which were in high demand. Presence of this demand has driven growth of paper coatings materials.
COVID-19 has impacted corrugated packaging globally as demand of finished products has declined, which resulted in lower demand for corrugated packaging. All developed and developing countries have to take strict action to curb the increasing count of the coronavirus cases which leads to the lockdown in several regions. Hence, these factors have led to decline in demand for consumer goods and raw materials for various industries in different regions. This resulted into loss to corrugated packaging manufacturers during the pandemic. The decline in demand for corrugated boxes has led to decline in demand for paper coatings materials.
