Paper Chemicals Market: Drivers & Opportunities

Market Driver:

  • Growth of The Packaging Paper and Paper-Based Packaging

Paper packaging is widely used as a secondary and tertiary packaging solution to pack a variety of products in different end-use industries. The rise in online shopping platforms, the demand for paper packaging products, such as corrugated boxes, folding cartons, and other flexible paper packaging solutions that offer optimum protection during shipping and handling will also gain a strong foothold in the global paper packaging market. Paper packaging includes flexible and rigid paper packaging formats such as cartons, cups & trays, wrapping paper, inserts & dividers, display packaging, clamshells, and tapes & labels. Paper packaging has significant weight advantages that ensure benefits in terms of raw material inputs and distribution efficiencies. The ban on lightweight plastic bags to improve the prospects of paper packaging is likely to drive the paper chemical market during the forecast period.

Market Opportunity:

  • Increasing Preference for Biodegradable Chemical

Various chemicals are used at the time of paper production. These paper processing chemicals are mostly fossil-oil based compounds and they create a negative impact on the environment. In the backdrop of rising environment concerns, paper mill manufactures are looking for biodegradable paper processing chemicals such as polymer-free coatings, and soy chemicals, which are compliant with various government legislatures. This factor is anticipated to create a huge opportunity for the for biocides and other paper processing chemicals manufacturers.
