Sanitary Paper Product Manufacturing in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Sanitary Paper Product Manufacturing in Canada

The Sanitary Paper Product Manufacturing industry in Canada has experienced moderate revenue volatility over the five years to 2017, as the increasing price of wood pulp has clashed with growing consumer spending power and the falling Canadian dollar. Overall, IBISWorld estimates that the industry will post relatively strong gains over the five years to 2017. The industry is anticipated to exhibit slight but steady growth over the next five years, as demographic changes continue to stimulate consumer demand. Improving consumer confidence and income levels will also drive demand for higher quality and premium sanitary paper products, further bolstering revenue. However, increasing demand for eco-friendly, reusable alternatives may hamper gains.

This industry converts sanitary paper stock or wadding, as well as pulp and paper, into sanitary paper products such as facial tissues and handkerchiefs, table napkins, towels, toilet paper, disposable diapers and tampons. Some operators may manufacture their own sanitary paper while others purchase it from mills. Final industry products are sold to wholesalers for distribution, straight to retailers or directly to large companies.

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.
