About This Report


The past five years have been challenging for the Pulp, Paper and Paperboard Manufacturing industry. Industry players have struggled to hold market share in the face of greater import competition and a decline in demand. Profit has fallen and many companies have left the industry due to tough conditions. However, recent high pulp prices provided a much needed boost to revenue, which has nonetheless declined at a compound annual rate of 0.3% in the five years through 2012-13. As prices eased, revenue has dwindled, dropping by a forecast 4.7% in 2012-13 to reach $3.28 billion.

Industry participants operate mills where they produce pulp, bulk paper and bulk paperboard from a variety of purchased inputs including woodchips, clay, lime, dyes and chemical resins. The industry manufactures paper from any fibre, and produces pulp from recycled paper. Some companies may manufacture paper and paperboard from purchased pulp, while others produce their own pulp.

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.
