Coronavirus to Alter Global Toilet Paper & Tissue Production, Paper360º July/August 2020
The toilet paper shortages seen during the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic should be balancing in most places as the supply chain catches up and hoarding behavior tapers off. However, we can expect supply chains in some countries to be challenged by a tissue product mix shift driven by stay-at-home orders. This has the potential to disrupt supply as people stop working outside the home, dining out, and traveling.
Figure 1 shows the global tissue product mix for consumer, commercial, and industrial tissue products. Global consumer bath accounts for 51 percent of the total capacity. Commercial bath provides an additional 7 percent capacity to total 58 percent. This is the total bath tissue volume that the supply chain is set up to deliver.
