2 February 2021

Newark, NJ, Feb. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As per the report published by Fior Markets, the global coated paper market is expected to grow from USD 28.12 billion in 2020 to USD 35.67 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 3.4% during the forecast period 2021-2028.

Some key factors that are supporting the growth of the global coated paper market are increasing online sales, which require packaging, increasing flexible paper packaging demand, the rising popularity of high caliber print images, and expanding packaging & advertising activities in various industries. In addition, the tendency towards progressive and environmentally sustainable packaging has resulted in the production of biodegradable packaging solutions, which serves as a driving force for the industry.

A layer of polymer or clay is applied on the sides of coated papers, which results in sharper & brighter images when used in printing while also providing improved reflectivity relative to uncoated variants. This layer adds a glossy touch to the paper, making it useful for magazines and other publications. Coated papers have better ink holdout and are dust resistant as well. This makes them ideal for various finishing methods, like spot varnish. End-uses of coated papers also include printing invitations, decorations, etc., which provide potential opportunities to firms.

With the outbreak of a global pandemic, many have faced salary cuts and job losses. Covid-19 has become a threat to the entire world's economy and has negatively impacted all kinds of markets, including the coated paper market. With less disposable income and broken supply chains, the market's growth is expected to slow down. Some other factors that are hindering the market growth are volatile wood pulp prices and the capital & energy-intensive nature of coated paper manufacturing.


Key players operating in the global coated paper market include Twin Rivers Paper Company, Imerys S.A., Michelman, BASF, Minerals Technologies Inc., The Dow Chemical Company, Dunn Paper Company, Nippon Paper Industries Co., Ltd., Svenska Cellulosa Aktiebolaget SCA, and South African Pulp and Paper Industries Ltd., among others. To gain a significant market share in the global coated paper market, the key players are now focusing on adopting strategies such as product innovations, mergers & acquisitions, recent developments, joint ventures, collaborations, and partnerships. BASF and South African Pulp and Paper Industries Ltd are some of the biggest manufacturers and suppliers of coated paper in the global market.

Mechanical segment dominated the market and was valued at USD 17.4 billion in the year 2020

Based on type, the global market has been divided into woodfree and mechanical. The mechanical segment dominated the market and was valued at USD 17.4 billion in the year 2020.
