Surface gloss: Stiff import competition and a declining print media sector will likely inhibit industry revenue growth

Manufacturers in the Coated and Laminated Paper Manufacturing industry have experienced a wide array of challenges over the five years to 2019, particularly from import competition and weak demand. As producers of commoditized goods, industry manufacturers compete heavily on price and have struggled against foreign companies that can pass their substantially lower production costs on to downstream customers. Partly due to the rising market share of foreign producers, industry revenue is expected to decrease. In many respects, the industry is expected to continue its decline over the five years to 2024 amid weak demand for its products. Despite continued growth in consumer spending, which will drive demand for consumer goods packaged in coated and laminated paper, stiff import competition, offshoring trends in downstream industries and a declining print media sector will inhibit industry growth. However, the wide range of uses for coated and laminated paper will preserve a measure of stability in the industry.

Companies in this industry primarily manufacture products that include coated or laminated paper and packaging, multiwall bags and laminated aluminum foil for flexible packaging. Industry operators also purchase raw materials, such as paper and paperboard, then process them with plastic, clay, latex and metal to create industry products. This industry does not include companies that manufacture paper from pulp; these companies are part of the Paper Mills industry (IBISWorld report 32212).

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.
