Wood Pulp Mills in the US

Over the past five years, industry operators have experienced revenue volatility due to fluctuations in both input prices and exchange rates between major trading partners. Despite uncertainty surrounding the longevity of paper products and wood pulp inputs, industry revenue is anticipated to grow in 2016. Over the five years to 2016, the industry has experienced slight annualized revenue decline. Over the five years to 2021, revenue is projected to grow, supported by continual demand from both domestic purchases of pulp-based consume staples and emerging economies' paper manufacturers. Although the industry is expected to stabilize over the next five years after its extended period of restructuring, potential declines in the value of exports would pose additional difficulty for the industry over the next five years.

Wood pulp mills primarily manufacture pulp without processing it into paper or paperboard. The pulp is made by separating the cellulose fibers 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.
