Global Paper & Pulp Mills - Industry Market Research Report

Global Paper & Pulp Mills

Pulp and paper mills produce a variety of pulp and paper products that are then sold to manufacturers of various paper goods across the world. Goods such as paper packaging are ubiquitous across the world for their use in facilitating the transfer of goods. The industry has experienced mixed results in recent years, as the increasing digitization of the global economy and rising internet usage across the globe have cut into demand for various traditional industry products such as newsprint and other forms of paper. However, the industry has shown signs of recovery. Industry production has to some extent been driven by emerging economies over the last five years, with production increasing in Asia and South America in particular. Many large international players have attempted to make inroads into Asian markets by expanding their industrial footprint there. While demand for newsprint and paper across the developing world has been falling, it has actually risen somewhat in many emerging economies. Over the five years to 2023, IBISWorld projects that revenue will increase.


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.
