Among the application segments, demand for paperboard & packaging is growing at the fastest pace, as paperboard & packaging caters to industries including FMCG, food & beverages, textiles and pharmaceutical. The segment is also expected to dominate the market, owing to factors such as rising urbanization, increasing preference for ready-to-eat foods and requirement of better-quality packaging of FMCG products marketed through organized retail.
Paper & paper products market in India has been segmented into North, South, East and West.Western region is the lead consumer of paper & paper products across the country, on account of increasing paper consumption, especially FMCG products.
