Drivers and Restraints

Sensor Technology and Shift Toward Recycling Underscore Growth

With paper mills adopting advanced technologies to boost energy efficiency and streamline information, the North America pulp and paper market growth could witness an upward trajectory. A notable use of advanced sensors could add fillip to the North America pulp and paper manufacturers. Moreover, the penetration of paper recycling to boost transportation, sorting and collection will augur well for the business outlook. The American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) claimed that approximately 65.7% of paper consumed in the U.S. was recycled in 2020. Favorable policies across New Jersey, Wisconsin, California, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island will foster regional growth.

That said, the rising preference for digital media in the print and education industries has challenged leading companies in the landscape.

Regional Insights

The U.S. is expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities following the wrapping & packaging solutions trend. The U.S. pulp and paper manufacturers and suppliers are slated to gain traction from the availability of raw materials and investments in technological advancements in paper manufacturing. It is worth noting that sustainable paper packaging could add fillip to regional growth. So much so that recyclable packaging has become the go-to trend in online retailing, boding well for the business outlook.

Canada is expected to contribute notably toward the North America pulp and paper market size, largely due to the rising footfall of recyclable packaging. Besides, rising concern about the non-recyclability of plastics is poised to encourage end-users to invest in sustainable products. In essence, pharmaceutical, food & beverage and fast-moving consumer goods companies have upped investments in sustainable packaging across Canada.
