Paperboard Mills in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Paperboard Mills in Canada

The Paperboard Mills industry has experienced strong growth over the five years to 2018. Industry mills process pulp, used paper and old corrugated containers into various paperboard varieties. Cardboard box and container manufacturers are the largest source of domestic revenue, and demand for such goods, which is tied to economic growth and levels of consumer spending, plays an important role in driving industry demand. Over the five years to 2023, the industry is anticipated to stagnate. Demand from cardboard box and container manufacturers is anticipated to slow, while other paper manufacturers will experience declining demand from print media, which will flow through to the industry. In addition, the Canadian dollar is expected to appreciate, which will allow import competition to continue to rise and will likely lead to slowing export growth.

This industry processes pulp, used paper and old corrugated containers into various paperboard varieties, including unbleached and bleached packaging paperboard, coated paperboard, industrial converting paperboard and recycled paperboard. The paperboard this industry produces is sold mainly to cardboard box and container manufacturers and to a range of consumer and industrial product producers for further processing.

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.
