Global Household Paper Market Size, Share & Industry Trends Analysis Report By Type (Kitchen Rolls, Paper Towels, Table Napkins, and Others), By Distribution Channel (Offline and Online), By Regional Outlook and Forecast, 2022 – 2028
The Global Household Paper Market size is expected to reach $54.8 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 3.9% CAGR during the forecast period.
Facial tissue, toilet tissue, paper towels, cups and plates, and paper napkins are among the home throwaway paper products available. To maintain good hygiene and cleanliness, household paper products are needed. Concerns about infectious diseases and allergies have contributed significantly to the expansion of the household paper market. The industry has grown dramatically in the last five years as the need for paper products has soared, owing to rising concerns about hygiene and cleanliness. Moreover, despite the economic situation, demand for household paper products like diapers and feminine products remains stable.
Aside from the benefits of paper over other materials, like easy accessibility of raw materials and low-cost manufacturing, tissue papers have been proven to be far more hygienic than cotton towels or any other product because a piece of tissue is utilized once and discarded, and new tissue is chosen to take out for the next time. Utilizing the same cotton towel several times is not a good way to keep the hands clean. Such reasons have fueled the market for domestic tissue paper goods. Tissues, on the other side, are more expensive in comparison to cotton towels because a towel can be utilized for several months whereas tissues are only used once.
The growth of the market can be attributed to people's growing awareness of hygiene and cleanliness. Consumer awareness of infectious diseases and allergies has been a primary driver of the industry's expansion. This is owing to rising concerns regarding hygiene and cleanliness, the industry has grown significantly in recent years. Additionally, rising awareness among health-conscious customers creates an opportunity over the forecast period. Increased attention to disposable waste, food storage safety, and sanitary hygiene are also driving the expansion of the household paper products.
With the spread of the coronavirus, the COVID-19 pandemic had a favorable impact on the market. The demand for household paper exploded as a result of an increase in consumption amongst people who believe it is safer to use during the pandemic due to the greater knowledge of personal hygiene and sanitation. Furthermore, increased awareness regarding personal hygiene and health as a result of the COVID-19 virus's proliferation is expected to drive market expansion in the coming years. The demand for home essentials such as tissue sheets has skyrocketed in the first several months of 2020 due to panic shopping. Lockdown rules implemented by separate government entities caused people to stay at home, boosting tissue paper use. For example, Kimberly-revenue Clark's in the first quarter of 2020 totaled USD 1.7 billion, up roughly 13% from the same period last year. The spike in volume, including double-digit gains for K-bathroom C's tissue and facial tissues within the consumer segment during Q1 2020, can be ascribed to the rise in tissue paper sales.
Market Growth Factors
Growing need for greener and natural products
The growing awareness of deforestation for paper pulp production has created a quandary among tissue paper consumers about how to use it. Manufacturers, on the other hand, are continuously looking for new ways to lessen the demand for virgin paper pulp obtained from trees by using recycled fibers in their goods. Manufacturers are also attempting to obtain raw materials responsibly. For example, Procter & Gamble said in September 2019 that by 2025, the proportion of FSC-certified tissue fiber in its Charmin, Bounty, and Puffs brands would grow by a significant rate consistently.
The increasing amount of commercial facilities
The rising popularity of travel and tourism has boosted the hospitality business around the world. It, together with rising cleanliness standards, has increased the need for tissue products in resorts, hotels, and restaurants, contributing to market expansion. Moreover, the growing working-class population has increased product consumption in offices and business sectors to meet employees' workplace needs. According to data from the United States Census Bureau's Country Business Pattern, the overall count of establishments in the United States increased in the year 2018 from the year 2017.
Market Restraining Factors
Increased use of tissue paper would add to the amount of garbage produced
Tissue paper is a one-time-use product, which contributes to the overall waste problem. Due to the significant effort necessary to degrade and recycle such tissue paper, customers should refrain from utilizing it and instead choose sustainable goods. Additionally, because tissue paper does not entirely dissolve in water, if it is flushed away, it might clog toilets and create drainage system blockage. Some papers are too dense to flow with the water, and if thrown directly into the washroom seats, it get lodged in the pipes and tubes. With the growing awareness of the importance of cleanliness and least wastage, the demand for tissue paper among people is expected to be less popular.

The table napkin segment garnered a significant revenue share in the household paper market in 2021.
