Fierce competition from imports and rising input costs have driven down revenue in the Paper Bag and Other Paper Product Manufacturing industry over the past five years. Falling domestic demand has forced industry operators to lower prices, despite increasing costs. As a result, industry revenue is forecast to decline by an annualised 3.6% over the five years through 2013-14. This includes a forecast decrease of 2.0% in 2013-14, to total $749.0 million. Demand has suffered over the past five years, as traditional demand markets weakened after the global financial crisis.
Operators in this industry process purchased paper into a variety of paper bags and sacks, paper packing goods, adhesive labels and other paper products.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
