Paper jam: Foreign competition and declining demand for paper will continue to plague industry mills

Paper Mills in the US

The Paper Mills industry has struggled over the past five years due to competition from foreign paper manufacturers and persistently declining demand for paper products. Industry operators have toiled with concerns surrounding the increasing popularity of online communication, which has significantly reduced demand for traditional paper products. Furthermore, operators in the United States are no longer the world's largest producers of paper, having been overtaken by Chinese manufacturers, which has caused industry exports to decline. Over the five years to 2022, the industry will continue to encounter challenges, particularly as paper purchases from print publishing industries gradually wane.

The Paper Mills industry manufactures paper in paper mills from pulp, a fibrous material derived from wood. Mill operators may manufacture their own pulp or purchase it. Industry products include paper rolls and reams, including printing and writing paper, newsprint, packaging material and household papers. These products are sold in bulk to individual consumers, businesses and downstream manufacturers who may further convert the industry’s products into specialty paper products.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
