Coated & Laminated Paper Manufacturing in the US

The Coated and Laminated Paper Manufacturing industry has struggled over the five years to 2016 due to mounting foreign competition and weak downstream demand. Printers and publishers, which have historically represented a significant market for the industry, have been battered by consumers' shift to digital media. This has forced many print publishers to either close or curtail their purchases of high-quality coated paper, reducing demand for industry products. Although coated and laminated paper manufacturers will continue to face strong import competition over the next five years, the wide range of uses for coated and laminated paper will soften revenue declines.

Companies in this industry primarily manufacture products that include coated or laminated paper and packaging, multiwall bags and laminated aluminum foil for flexible packaging. Operators in this industry also purchase raw materials, such as paper and paperboard, and process them with plastic, clay, latex and metal to create industry products. This industry does not include companies that manufacture paper from pulp (IBISWorld report 32212).

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.
