About This Report


The Paper and Paperboard Manufacturing industry is gradually crumpling under the pressure of widespread adoption of computers and other communication technology and alternative packaging materials. This downward trend has been compounded by weak economic conditions during the start of the period and strong competition from low-cost imports. The industry has trended down for much of the past decade and is expected to decline at a compound annual rate of 2.1% over the five years through 2015-16. In the past decade, many leading manufacturers have exited the industry, which has also contributed to its decline.

Firms in this industry manufacture paper and paperboard products from pulp and recycled materials. A large proportion of the industry's output is intended for further processing by downstream manufacturers (e.g. to make cardboard packaging) although the industry also supplies finished products such as newsprint, writing paper and paperboard liner.

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.
