Will Imported Kraftliner Regain its Share of China’s Linerboard Market?, Paper360º July/August 2019

Over the past 15 years, China’s imports of kraftliner have experienced a U-shaped path, falling by almost half from their 2002 levels and then rising again in the last two or three years. Figure 1 shows annual kraftliner imports from 2002 to 2018. The question is: Will imports keep rising or, being cyclical, will they fall back to their lower levels?

This is an important question, for China’s market is now so big that rising imports could be a significant boon to producing countries, while falling imports could depress the markets of those producers. The answer lies in an understanding of the evolution of China’s linerboard market.
