Paper Coating Materials Market Overview

  • Demand for paper coating materials from the printing and packaging industries is expanding, which is helping to drive the market. It is anticipated that the paper coating materials market is likely to be hampered by the rising popularity of electronic media.
  • The paper industry's rising need for biopolymer industrial coating material is expected to present a promising opportunity for the paper coating materials market in the years ahead.
  • The printing and packaging industries are likely to drive the industrial coating market due to their high demand for these products.
  • Countries like China and India in Asia are likely to drive the industry, accounting for most of the region's consumption.

Asia Pacific Paper Coating Materials Market to Rise to Growth

During the projected period, the sales of paper coating materials are anticipated to be led by the Asia-Pacific region. The growing population and construction activity in emerging economies like China and India are forecast to fuel the need for industrial coating materials in this region.

IBEF predicts that by 2020, paper consumption in India is expected to have increased by 53%. Over the course of the last few years, the Indian paper industry has spent almost $20 billion on investments like infrastructure modernization, capacity expansion, and mergers and acquisitions. Paper's increasing versatility in applications as diverse as corrugated boxes and food packaging is expected to drive demand for paper coating materials. The Government of India and the Ministry of Commerce and Industry founded the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF) to increase demand for Indian exports and boost the reputation of Indian brands abroad.

The rising paper market has been propelled by rising environmental awareness about plastic use, particularly in the Asia Pacific and Middle East areas. The top companies in the paper coating materials market frequently implement product innovations and geographical expansions as part of their overall strategies.

The Asia Pacific area, is home to the world's largest producers of paper coating materials. Companies like BASF SE, Eastman Chemical, Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) Sinar Mas, Nippon Paper Industries Co. Ltd, and Michelman Inc. are at the forefront of the paper coating materials industry.

Many nations, including India and China, are promoting paper packaging products over plastic packaging. Thus the shift toward eco-friendly and sustainable paper packaging is likely to gain pace.\

Paper coating materials are various compounds that are used to coat the paper in order to improve and enhance its glossy appearance, brightness, opacity, and ink absorption characteristics. There are several chemicals such as Silicate of Magnesia, Calcium Magnesium Carbonate and Alganic acid which are used to prepare the paper coating materials.

The demand for paper coating material market is influenced by the growing consumption of paper for various purposes such as Packaging, office paper, stationery, corrugated boxes, wallpaper and bookbinding. Paper coating materials are available globally owing to its increasing demand across the world and anticipated to project a remarkable growth during the forecast period 2015-2025.
