Paper thin: Despite improved demand, increased outsourcing will limit industry growth


Paperboard Mills in the US

The Paperboard Mills industry produces paperboard, which is an intermediate good used primarily in the manufacture of cardboard boxes. As a result, the industry benefits from consumer demand for a wide variety of goods that utilize cardboard packaging. Although consumer spending has increased since 2011, the industry has struggled with rising import penetration in the US manufacturing sector, which has reduced demand for US-produced paperboard. During the next five years, an acceleration of growth in consumer spending is expected to improve industry performance. However, low margins in paperboard production are expected to encourage consolidation and limit workforce expansions.

This industry processes pulp, used paper and old corrugated containers (OCC) into various paperboard varieties, including unbleached and bleached packaging paperboard, coated paperboard, industrial converting paperboard and recycled paperboard. The paperboard this industry produces is sold mainly to cardboard box and container manufacturers and to a range of consumer and industrial product producers for further processing.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
