July 27, 2023 | Packaging

According to the latest report by IMARC group, titled “North America Specialty Paper Market Report by Type (Label and Release Papers, Printing Papers, Flexible Packaging Papers, Rolling Papers, and Others), Raw Material (Pulp, Fillers and Binders, Additives and Coatings, and Others), Application (Packaging and Labeling, Printing and Writing, Industrial Use, Building and Construction, and Others), and Country 2024-2032”, the North America specialty paper market size reached 9,345 Million Tons in 2023. Specialty paper refers to high-quality, superior-grade paper that is designed for specific applications and tailored to meet specific end-use requirements. These papers are often used in a variety of industries, such as packaging, printing, and labeling, and can also be found in everyday products like coffee filters, insulation materials, banknotes, and decorative laminates. Specialty papers are often superior in strength, brightness, resistance, and adaptability. They may be treated, coated, or sized to give them specific attributes, such as water resistance, heat resistance, tear strength, and printability. These papers are also environmentally friendly, with some made from recycled materials or designed to be easily recyclable or compostable. The features of specialty paper are largely determined by their intended application. For instance, thermal paper, used for receipts, possesses heat sensitivity allowing it to change color when exposed to a heat source. Watermarked paper, used for banknotes or certificates, has patterns or designs incorporated during the production process for authenticity. Acid-free paper, often used for archival purposes, resists yellowing and degradation over time. Specialty papers carry aesthetic appeal; they can be dyed, embossed, or textured to add visual interest and tactile pleasure.
