Paper coating materials play an important role in the paper industry as they enhance the quality of the paper, which is used in various applications. Paper coating materials include minerals that are used to bring special properties to the paper, such as gloss, smoothness, opacity, whiteness, and brightness to produce coated 1, coated 2, coated 3, coated 4, and other coated papers.
The paper coating materials market is expected to show the highest growth in the next five years, driven by huge investments in new technologies, innovations, and new product developments in the U.S., China, Japan, and Brazil. In 2013, the Asia-Pacific region dominated the global market with a share of 43.2% and is projected to have a share of 47.3% by 2019.
Paper coating materials are made up of a group of naturally available materials that are used in the manufacturing of different coated papers for special applications. End-users are the consumers of coated papers such as magazines, book covers, post cards, bank statements, corrugated boxes, and so on, who use it in printing and packaging applications.
The North American paper coating materials market is steady, showing nearly negligible growth. This region is estimated to reach 6,982.79 KT by 2019, expected to grow at a CAGR of 1.1% from 2014 to 2019. As the paper coating materials market in the Asia-Pacific region is growing, the manufacturers in North America are shifting their manufacturing plants to the Asian countries, especially in China and India. America, being a developed country, has no scope left for the growth in the coated paper industry as the use of magazines, newspapers, catalogues is declining. The only scope left for coating materials market is in the paper packaging industry, which consumes corrugated boxes. Talc and starch are estimated to grow at a CAGR of 1.5% each, during the forecast period. Kaolin clay takes the second place in this region, which was estimated to account for $181.2 million in 2013, and is projected to account for $191.2 million by 2019.
