Global Wood Pulp Market to Grow at 2.82% during 2024-2032, Fueled by Increasing Product Application Across Numerous Industries

April 12, 2023 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “­­Wood Pulp Market Report by Type (Hardwood, Softwood), Grade (Mechanical, Chemical, Semi-Chemical, and Others), End Use Industry (Packaging, Paper, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” the global wood pulp market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 2.82% during 2024-2032. Wood pulp is a fibrous material derived from wood. It is mainly used to produce a wide variety of paper and paper-based products such as newspapers, books, magazines, paperboard, packaging materials, and tissue paper. It is made by breaking down wood chips into individual fibers through pulping. This can be done either mechanically by grinding wood chips into a pulp with high-speed rotating blades or chemically by dissolving the lignin that binds the wood fibers together using sodium hydroxide and sodium sulfite. Wood pulp is also used as a key material in producing cellulose derivatives such as rayon, cellophane, and cellulose acetate. 

Global Wood Pulp Market Trends:

The expanding product utilization across various industries, such as automotive, pharmaceuticals, packaging, and food and beverage (F&B), is primarily driving the market growth. Besides this, the increasing use of wood pulp in manufacturing sustainable packaging solutions, such as paper bags, boxes, and cartons, and the expanding demand for digital printing for product branding and promotion are contributing to the market growth. Moreover, the largescale product demand for manufacturing various personal hygiene products, including napkins, handkerchiefs, toilet rolls, baby wipes, and diapers, due to their versatile nature, is presenting remunerative growth opportunities for the market. In line with this, the widespread product utilization in the production of different items, such as car filters, liquid crystal display (LCD) screens, shoes, handbags, fresh food wrapping, labels and stickers, newspapers, envelopes, and binding agents, is aiding in market expansion. Additionally, significant growth in the e-commerce industry and the surging popularity of cellulose-based textiles are impelling the market growth. Furthermore, rapid urbanization, the rising global population, escalating consumer awareness about health and personal hygiene, inflating disposable incomes, and high living standards are creating a positive outlook for the market.
