Wood Pulp Mills in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Wood Pulp Mills in Canada

Over the past five years, industry operators have seen strong growth in revenue despite tepid domestic demand. Growing disposable income alongside strong consumer sentiment has increased demand from some downstream industries. However, paper mills, the largest downstream industry, have experienced a significant decline due to an ever-growing reliance on digital technology slashing demand for paper. However, these conditions have been counteracted by growing demand from emerging economies and strong growth in the price of wood pulp. Over the next five years, anticipated growth in wood pulp prices will be beneficial to industry revenue, but the continued struggles of downstream paper mills will constrain revenue growth. Meanwhile, an appreciating Canadian dollar will make domestic goods less competitive in international markets, tempering export growth, and as a result, industry exports are expected to be stagnant during the outlook period.

Wood pulp mills primarily manufacture pulp from organic materials without processing it into paper or paperboard. The pulp is made by separating the cellulose fibres from impurities in wood or other materials such as used or recycled rags, linters, scrap paper and straw.

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.
