Global Fluff Pulp Market: Industry Analysis & Outlook (2017-2021)

Fluff Pulp, also known as fluffy pulp or comminution pulp, is a chemical pulp made of cellulose fibers obtained from long softwoods. Fluff pulp is usually bleached and produced in huge quantities worldwide due to its high bulkiness and high water absorbency. The most common raw material for fluff pulp is southern bleached softwood Kraft (SBSK). The main sources of SBSK are slash pine, longleaf pine, shortleaf pine, loblolly pine and Virginia pine. For fluff pulp, slash pine is preferred over other sources because of its thick fiber. Slash pine is a pine tree and usually found in Southeastern United States. More than 90% of fluff pulps are fully bleached and usually Kraft pulp. Kraft pulp, also called Sulfate pulp, consists of almost pure cellulose fiber. It is considered as the strongest pulp and has the least amount of Lignin. Fluff pulp is designed to be used in hygiene care products like diapers, napkins, pads etc.

Regionally, North America held the largest share in the global capacity of fluff pulp, supported by abundance of raw material for fluff pulp. In terms of demand, Asia is a major contributor to the global fluff pulp market, supported by high demand for fluff pulp in China.
Baby diapers remained the most significant end-use market for fluff pulp due to rising volumes and value of baby diapers market. In the coming years, air-laid market is expected to bring a notable growth in demand for fluff pulp, supported by increasing production of air-laid products.

The global fluff pulp market is expected to grow in future due to increasing ageing population, female population, growth in baby diaper market, increased production of air-laid products, expanding patient population of incontinence and rising disposable income.
