China Papermaking Market Trends Explored by CRI in Its Cutting-Edge Report Recently Published at MarketPublishers.com19 Oct 2016 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – The Chinese papermaking market has exhibited growth at a swift pace during past several years, due to continued upturn of the domestic economy. The output volume of paper and paperboard in the country crossed 107 million tons in the past year, posting an 8.7% CAGR during 2000-2015.
At present, the degree of prosperity differs across various sub-industries of the Chinese papermaking industry. The rising penetration of Internet in China results in declining circulation of traditional print media and, further, in continuous fall of the Chinese newsprint output volume. Meantime, the output of household paper is gaining traction, driven by enhancing living standards of the Chinese population. Liner board and packaging paper production is also keeping to a growth trend in China due to on-going development of e-commerce.
The Chinese papermaking market is inhabited by a great number of companies with low market penetration rate. By late 2015, the number of papermaking and paper product companies in China reached 2,800; their combined annual sales revenues went beyond CNY 20 million. Still there is a huge gap between the Chinese and the average level of international papermaking companies in developed countries. In the past year, there were less than 20 papermaking companies in China whose annual output was over 1 million tons.
