About the Industry
The Indian Paper Industry is the fastest growing pulp and paper market in the world today. With an estimated turnover of approximately USD 3, 4 billion in 2010, the Indian pulp and paper industry is growing on a strong demand base with several expansion plans underway.
The demand for newsprint and writing & printing paper is expected to grow with 9% per year and the total Indian paper production is expected to grow from 9 million tonnes in 2010 to 14 million tonnes in 2014.
India accounts for nearly 15% of the world population but consumes only 1 % of the world paper consumption. By 2015, the consumption of paper in India is expected to double from the current 8 million tones. At the moment, the paper consumption in India is just 7 kgs per capita, as compared to the global average of 50 kgs.
The potential implications are enormous; the impact of just 1 kg increase per capita consumption would lead to an increase in demand by 1.1 million tonnes of paper. According to many industry experts, India will definitely be one of the most interesting markets for the global pulp and paper industry in the coming years.
