COVID-19 scenario analysis

  • The outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has significantly reduced the demand for wood pulp.
  • The shutdown of the packaging industry has negatively impacted the growth of the wood & furniture industry, which, in turn, hampers the growth of the global wood pulp market.
  • In many countries, industries are shut down, thus, the production of wood pulp has declined drastically, due to the restrictions imposed on labor movement.
  • The supply chain of the wood pulp has disrupted due to the trade barriers.

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers, and impact analysis

The use of wooden pulp in the manufacturing of furniture and the production of soft pieces used in the residential sector has given impetus to the growth of the market.

Rise in global demand for tissue paper, which is majorly used in kitchens, toilets, and households, is expected to drive market growth of wood pulp market during the forecast period.

Implementation of stringent environmental regulations regarding deforestation, however, is anticipated to negatively impact the growth of the market for wood pulp in the coming years. Moreover, increase in energy and transportation costs are expected to hamper the growth of the global market.

The global market trends are as follows:

  • Many leading fast food chains serve items containing pulp made from wood. In shredded cheese, fish fillet patties, sausages, tortillas, onion rings, pancakes, and even milkshakes wood pulp additives are often present. Cellulose adds texture, thickens, and stabilizes food with complementary chemicals, and is safe for human consumption. Without this, the ice cream would melt more quickly.
  • Some bath towels are made from a wood pulp by-product known as rayon. Rayon is highly absorbent, soft, and comfortable on the skin but does not insulate heat from the body – ideal for use in hot and humid climates. Wet wipes are frequently made with rayon, as it allows each sheet to hold liquid disinfectant while maintaining its texture and form.
  • Increase in demand for wood pulp-based packaging is anticipated to create significant pressure for supply chains in the pulp industry. Furthermore, increase in backlash against plastic consumption has brought wood pulp-based packaging into the spotlight where products such as paper and paperboard have a major stake in the global market for pulp.

Potential market

Canada is the world’s largest producer of wood pulp due to the presence of coniferous forests, which provide the paper industry with raw material. Owing to rise in production costs and increase in competition from pulp &paper producers, few Canadian paper mills faced challenges, resulting in conversions and ending of pulp and paper mills.
