Wood Pulp Mills in the US

Over the past five years, industry operators have experienced revenue volatility due to stagnant demand from domestic downstream markets. However, strong growth in emerging economies bolstered exports, helping US pulp mills recover from the recession. In the coming years, steady demand from emerging economies' paper manufacturers will support industry growth. However, wood pulp prices are anticipated to fall, cutting into profit and revenue.

Wood pulp mills primarily manufacture pulp without processing it into paper or paperboard. The pulp is made by separating the cellulose fibers from impurities in wood or other materials, such as used or recycled rags, linters, scrap paper and straw.

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.
