Paperboard Mills in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Paperboard Mills in the US

Although consumer spending has increased since 2014, the Paperboard Mills industry has struggled with rising import penetration into the US manufacturing sector, which has reduced demand for US-produced paperboard. In addition, strong substitute competition, particularly from plastic packaging, has constrained growth in industry selling prices and limited revenue gains. As a result, the industry's sales have grown sluggishly. Over the next five years, continued growth in consumer spending is expected to improve industry performance. However, low margins in paperboard production are expected to encourage consolidation and limit workforce expansions. Rising materials prices are anticipated to limit profit gains, forcing mill operators to invest in new automation technology to increase the efficiency of production.

This industry processes pulp, used paper and old corrugated containers (OCC) 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.
