The growing awareness on the impact of deforestation to the environment has led to paper manufacturing companies opting for alternative sources for paper production. Paper manufacturing companies are recycling paper products to save costs on raw material that in turn is helping companies in their environment conservation efforts. Also, biomass produced as a byproduct from paper industry is enabling companies to generate electricity for manufacturing activities. For instance, Austrian based Mondi Container board launched ecofriendly paper grades for packaging that can be recycled for producing wide range of paper products.


The global converted paper products manufacturing market is expected to grow to $422 billion in 2020. Asia was the largest region in the converted paper products manufacturing market in 2016, accounting for $174 billion or 47.0% market share. This was mainly due to the increased demand for corrugated paper box, stationary and sanitary paper products in countries such as China and India.

The chart below shows the year-on-year growth of the global converted paper product manufacturing market during 2016 - 2020.


According to The Business Research Company’s Manufacturing Consultant, Abdul Wasay, the paper industry has been shifting from labor intensive manufacturing processes to automated production facilities. Automation has enabled converted paper product companies to enhance productivity and reduce production costs. These technologies are also saving energy cost. Control systems such as integrated drive systems (IDS) are improving plant efficiency by minimizing energy consumption and simplifying service and maintenance processes. For instance, Swedish company Stora Enso Partbnis partnered with Siemens to automate its Skoghall facility.

International Paper was the largest company in the converted paper product manufacturing market with revenues of $18 billion in the year 2015. The company’s growth strategy is to expand its production capacity through investments. It planned to invest $300 million in its North American containerboard mill system to reduce manufacturing and delivery costs in the years 2016 and 2017. It also invested in converting its coated paperboard mill in North Carolina to fluff pulp production to expand the capacity to 400,000 tons to meet the demand of its global consumers.
