These countries are marked by their relatively smaller per capita consumption of coated paper when compared to mature markets in North America and Europe.

Coated Paper: A Global Strategic Business Report

The present state of the global coated paper market is typified by declining demand for various types of coated papers from end use markets. The global recession that started during the last quarter of 2008 pulverized growth prospects in the global coated paper industry. Years of excess capacity, and decline in prices in recent years, in markets such as North America and Europe, resulted in decelerated growth in the global coated paper market. This is further worsened by the recession that led to significant fall in demand for coated paper.

Global market for coated paper is expected to revive as global economy recovers and demand increases afresh.
