The Coated and Laminated Paper Manufacturing industry has faced weakened domestic demand for its products over the five years to 2016. Although the industry benefits from a wide range of downstream markets, including steady demand for its packaging products from food and beverage manufacturers, increased digital media consumption has reduced demand for paper from publishers, constraining the industry's growth prospects. In the coming years, continued growth in consumer spending and a much stronger expected increase in industrial capacity utilization relative to the prior period will improve demand for industry packaging products used in consumer goods manufacturing.
This industry purchases raw materials, such as paper and paperboard, and processes them with plastic, clay, latex and metal to create products that include coated or laminated paper and packaging, paper and multiwall bags and laminated aluminum foil for flexible packaging. This industry does not include companies that manufacture paper from pulp, photosensitive paper, textile bags or plastic laminated bags.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
