Stone paper refers to a white-colored paper variant that is primarily manufactured by combining calcium carbonate (limestone) and high-density polyethylene resin (HDPE). It is non-toxic, fire-, grease- and water-resistant, food-safe, recyclable, etc. Stone paper is an ecologically sustainable alternative of conventional paper as it is derived from naturally-occurring limestone, thereby limiting the dependency on wood. As a result, it finds extensive applications in the manufacturing of packaging materials, stationery goods, adhesives, cutlery, etc.

In the GCC region, the rising environmental concerns towards continuous depletion of natural timber for paper production are primarily driving the demand for eco-friendly alternatives, such as stone paper. Additionally, the wide availability of limestone in the region due to favorable geographic conditions is also propelling the market for stone paper. Furthermore, the limited presence of forest cover and inadequate water resources across the GCC countries are augmenting the demand for stone paper as a dependable substitute for conventional paper. Apart from this, the expanding packaging industry is further catalyzing the demand for stone paper in producing various packaging materials, including pouches, bags, boxes, etc. Additionally, the growing consumer awareness towards the recyclable and eco-friendly nature of stone paper is also bolstering its usage in the printing sector. In the coming years, the declining usage of single-use plastic products will further continue to drive the demand for stone paper-based bags and food containers in the GCC region.
