Global Paper and Paperboard Demand Growing Despite Declines in Graphic Paper, Paper360º March/April 2018



Healthy gains in packaging and tissue outweighed the slide in graphic paper demand in 2016, allowing global paper and paperboard demand to grow by 1 percent, or 3.9 million metric tons. This expansion is somewhat subdued relative to the past 15 years’ average growth rate of 1.5 percent per year, but it represents an improvement compared to the past five years’ average growth of only 0.7 percent per year.

In addition, this growth comes despite global graphic paper demand shrinking by 2.6 percent in 2016, its second-worst performance ever outside of a recession. The worst non-recession performance by global graphic paper demand occurred in 2015, when global paper and paperboard demand’s anemic growth of just 0.3 percent also represented its worst non-recession year ever.
