The global industrial application paper industry witnessed strong growth during the last five years.

Industrialization and urbanization in developing countries are expected to drive the demand for specialty papers.
Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has analyzed the global industrial application paper industry and present its findings in its report, “Global Industrial Application Paper Industry 2012-2017: Trend, Profit, and Forecast Analysis.”
The global industrial application paper industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in the manufacturing of all grades of industrial paper, thermal paper, self-adhesive paper, envelopes, etc. The industry is fragmented and competition in the global industrial application paper industry is high because of low product differentiation, moderate industry growth rate, and fragmented markets for paper products. Major macroeconomic factors such as GDP, income, and consumer spending affect the industry growth.
Changes in raw material prices, energy and transportation costs, and enhanced environmental regulations represent some of the challenges before the industry. Higher income levels and the rising middle class are likely to increase the consumption of packaged consumer goods such as beverages and processed foods, enhancing demand for specialty paper. Stone paper replacing conventional paper and manufacturers going green with greater environmental awareness are upcoming trends that could drive the industry toward new growth.
