Coated & Laminated Paper Manufacturing in Canada
The Coated and Laminated Paper Manufacturing industry in Canada comprises establishments that manufacture coated and laminated paper and paperboard products, paper bags and related goods from purchased paper. While demand for products from some traditional industries such as the publishing sector has diminished due to increased digital media consumption, the industry has benefited from increased demand in other areas. While improving domestic conditions have expanded industry demand, a depreciation in the Canadian dollar relative to the US dollar helped to underpin industry growth by boosting industry exports. The industry also suffers from rising levels of import penetration, particularly from lower cost countries such as China. Industry performance is forecast to slow over the five years to 2024.
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.
