Global Wood Pulp Market Outlook

The global wood pulp market reached a production volume of 70 MMT in 2020. The industry is further expected to grow at a CAGR of about 1.6% in the forecast period of 2021-2026.

 

North America to be a Significant Market in the Wood Pulp Industry

North America is one of the significant regional markets for the wood pulp industry as Canada is one of the largest producers of wood pulp globally, owing to the presence of coniferous forests that provide raw materials to the paper industry. Canada has about a quarter of the world's boreal forests and is among the largest pulp and paper market in the world. The country produces a significant amount of raw material, satisfying both international and domestic demand. However, few Canadian paper mills faced difficulties owing to the rising production costs and growing competition from pulp and paper producers in the southern United States and Scandinavia, which culminated in the conversion and closure of pulp and paper mills.
