June 14, 2019 | Packaging

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Specialty Paper Market Report by Type (Label and Release Papers, Printing Papers, Flexible Packaging Papers, Rolling Papers, Décor Papers, Banknotes and Security Papers, and Others), Raw Material (Pulp, Fillers and Binders, Additives, Coatings, and Others), Application (Packaging and Labeling, Printing and Writing, Industrial Use, Building and Construction, Food Service, and Others), and Region 2024-2032”, the global specialty paper market size reached 35.5 Billion Metric Tons in 2023. Specialty papers are superior quality papers that are manufactured using nano-based materials, composites and fibers. Various kinds of pulp including wood pulp, wood chips, cotton fiber and recycled paper are also utilized in their production. These papers are designed for specific applications as they possess numerous beneficial properties like dimensional stability, density, porosity, smoothness, and absorptivity. As a result, they are extensively employed across diverse industries such as retail, healthcare, construction, packaging and labeling, and laundry care.

Global Specialty Paper Market Trends:

Owing to their unique properties like enhanced moisture retention, pH levels and hygiene, specialty papers are apt to be used as a packaging material across the food and beverage industry. Significant growth in the industry on account of changing lifestyle and inflating disposable income levels is driving the demand for these papers. Furthermore, escalating sales of on-the-go food products, coupled with the increasing popularity of single-serve instant beverage mix sachets, is also positively influencing the sales of these papers. Moreover, they are widely used in the e-commerce sector for labeling and packaging applications. Apart from this, increasing regulations on the use of plastic bags on a global level due to a rise in environmental concerns have led users to make a shift towards specialty paper alternatives. These papers are also utilized for safeguarding a wide range of merchandise during transportation. Also, specialty papers are widely utilized for the production of masking tapes used in the construction industry. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market volume is anticipated to reach 48.4 Billion Metric Tons by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 3.4% during 2024-2032.
