August 24, 2018

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Stone Paper Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, the global stone paper market reached a value of US$ 809.3 Million in 2021. Stone paper is a highly durable, strong and eco-friendly paper-like material made by using a blend of calcium carbonate and high-density polyethylene (HDPE). It is also known as paper from waste marble, rich mineral paper and rock paper. Over the years, stone paper has gained prominence among the consumers since it offers a number of advantages over conventional paper. It is acid-free with a neutral pH; resistant to water, grease, and insect; and collects no static charge. Additionally, it is non-toxic, food safe, fire-resistant, recyclable, waterproof and FDA compliant. Owing to these properties, stone paper is increasingly being used for various purposes including stationery, packaging, adhesives, wrappers, bags, etc.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Stone Paper Market Trends:

The rising e-commerce and organised retail sectors have broadened the growth prospects of the packaging industry. Since stone paper helps in enhancing the aesthetic properties of the packaged product along with providing an environment-friendly and economical solution, this has fuelled its demand for packaging applications. Moreover, the growing concerns among the consumers regarding pollution caused by plastic packaging and the negative impact of pulp paper have stimulated the sales of stone paper, particularly in the developed regions. Further, the continuous advancements and increasing investments in manufacturing technologies are boosting the market growth. However, the easy availability of substitutes remains the key challenge hampering the global stone paper market growth. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 1044.4 Million by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 4.29% during 2022-2027.

Global Stone Paper Market Summary:

  • Based on application, paper packaging represents the largest segment due to the growing concerns regarding the usage of plastics as well as the recyclable and eco-friendly nature of the product. Paper packaging is followed by labelling paper, self-adhesive paper and others.
  • Region-wise, Asia Pacific is the leading market, holding the largest market share on account of the rising product utilization in the paper and packaging applications. This can also be accredited to the minimal environmental impact of the stone paper as it assists in minimizing water consumption, preventing deforestation, and reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
