Wood Pulp Mills in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Wood Pulp Mills in Canada

Over the past five years, domestic Wood Pulp Mills industry operators have seen strong growth in revenue driven by a depreciating domestic dollar, stimulating exports, alongside rising prices worldwide in response to supply constraints. Over the five years to 2019, industry revenue is expected to grow. Over the next five years, industry revenue is expected to slow somewhat. While anticipated growth in wood pulp prices will be beneficial to industry revenue, the continued struggles of downstream paper mills worldwide will constrain 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 slow 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.
