The latest report by IMARC, titled “India Kraft Paper Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, finds that India kraft paper market size reached 8.50 Million Tons in 2021. Kraft paper refers to a strong paperboard material produced from chemical pulp attained through the kraft procedure. The pulp of kraft paper is decolorized with chemicals to increase its thickness, durability and strength while maintaining its lightweight characteristics. Some of the most commonly available kraft papers include printed, black, colored and white. It is recyclable, reusable, and can be decomposed completely. In recent years, kraft papers have gained traction in various e-commerce and food packaging products due to their durability, elasticity, toughness, and high-strength compression performance.

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

India Kraft Paper Market Trends:

One of the primary factors driving the market is the rising environmental consciousness regarding the adverse effects of plastic and other non-biodegradable materials, resulting in an increased adoption of compostable and sustainable packaging materials. Additionally, kraft paper is colorful, aesthetically appealing, and textured on account of which it is widely used for gift wrappings, events, and weddings across the country. Other than this, kraft paper has a high employment rate in the construction sector to cater to the unique needs related to partition, countertop,  and flooring applications. Besides this, the growing adoption of fast-food restaurants in urban areas, along with the shipment of food items, including wheat, rice, eggs, processed and dried fruits, milk, sugar, starch, and additives, are propelling the market growth. Besides this, there has been a surging demand for modern packaging with visual appeal, long shelf, and brand identity. As a result, kraft papers have gained popularity as they can be easily blended with other fibers. Apart from this, the stringent initiatives taken by the Government of India to ban the use of plastic have provided a positive market outlook. For instance, the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), a statutory organization under the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, has issued a list of steps to ban the usage of single-use plastic products. Other major growth-inducing factors include the launch of advanced packaging solutions, such as zipper and stand-up pouches, and the surging popularity of kraft paper in the printing and publication sectors.
