Industry Insights, Market Size, CAGR, High-Level Analysis: Paper Products Market

The global paper products market size was estimated at USD 268.8 billion in 2018 and is expected to register a CAGR of 0.3% from 2021 to 2026. This growth is primarily attributed to the rising demand for packaging paper by major companies in the retail, FMCG, pharmaceutical, and hospitality industries. Increasing technological developments for paper-based products have enabled the manufacturing of processed paper with higher strength and durability than plastic packaging materials.
It has been observed that packaging paper material is gaining acceptance in a wide range of industries, such as food and consumer products. Other factors affecting the market growth are rising awareness about environmental issues like biodegradability, global warming, and health problems created by plastic packaging materials. The Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) industry is also one of the major consumers of paper products.

Thus, rapid expansion of QSR market has added to the product demand. Shifting preference for off-premises consumption of food on account of busy schedules is expected to drive the product demand further. In addition, availability of freshly cooked food in franchises and food trucks has also witnessed an upsurge and have added to the demand. For instance, global food chain McDonalds provide all their orders in paper packages.
Recycled packaging paper has become a popular trend to reduce the plastic waste. Cardboard, paper and other materials can be recycled and used for different kind of product packing and shipment. Leading companies are investing on paper products. For instance, PepsiCo, Inc. has committed to provide 100% recyclable packaging by 2025. Walmart has declared to provide recyclable packaging for all the private level brands.
