The performance of the Pulp, Paper and Paperboard Manufacturing industry has deteriorated over the past five years, largely due to a decline in the downstream consumption of industry products. While industry manufacturers have fought hard to maintain market share, their efforts have been undermined by the steady decline of the downstream printing and publishing industries. The decline of these important downstream markets has driven down the total consumption of paper products over the period, particularly newsprint.
The industry consists of businesses that mainly manufacture wood pulp, paper or paperboard from a variety of inputs including woodchips, clay, lime, dyes, chemical resins and recycled paper.
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.
