Wood Pulp Mills in the US - Industry Market Research Report

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. Industry profit margins also exhibited volatility over the past five years. However, many timber and paper product manufacturers that also operate pulp manufacturing plants within the industry have successfully shifted their focus away from traditional paper product manufacturing in favor of greater wood pulp production. Over the five years to 2023, continual demand from both domestic purchasers of pulp-based consumer staples and emerging economies' paper manufacturers will support modest industry growth. However, looming concern surrounding the longevity of China's recent manufacturing growth has created some concern for the industry.

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.
