DUBLIN — Pulp friction: Mills will rely on exports for growth, but high commodity prices will cut into profit

The Wood Pulp Mills industry has experienced volatile contraction in the midst of stagnant domestic demand over the past five years. In addition, this industry is highly globalized and exports are a major driver of demand. Over the past five years, strong growth in the paper products sectors of emerging economies bolstered exports, helping US pulp mills recover from the recession. In the five years to 2018, revenue is projected to slowly grow due to steady demand from emerging economies' paper manufacturers. However, wood pulp prices are anticipated to fall, which will cut into profit and revenue.

Wood pulp mills primarily manufacture pulp without processing it into paper or paperboard. The pulp is made by separating the cellulose fibers from impurities in wood or other materials, such as used or recycled rags, linters, scrap paper and straw.

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.
