Global Paper & Pulp Mills

Global Paper & Pulp Mills

The Global Paper and Pulp Mills industry has contracted slightly over the past five years, primarily due to the transition to digital media and paperless communication across most developed economies. However, manufacturing booms in many emerging markets have partially offset the decline by driving increased demand for paper used in packaging materials. As a whole, the industry is expected to shift its focus toward packaging materials and sanitary products, its two most promising segments for growth. Over the next five years, industry revenue is expected to resume slow expansion, though growth in developing markets will outpace revenue increases in the United States and Europe.

Paper and pulp mills produce a variety of bulk paper, paperboard and pulp input materials using woodchips, clay, lime, dyes, chemical resins, bleaches and other inputs. Pulp mills separate cellulose fibers from wood and other recyclable materials to make pulp, and paper mills use this pulp to manufacture paper products. Some paper mills manufacture paper and paperboard through their own separate pulp mill processes while others choose to purchase pulp from upstream pulp mills.

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.
