Stationary success: Digitalisation is limiting the need for paper, threatening demand for paper and paperboard

The Paper and Paperboard Manufacturing industry has struggled under the ever-increasing threat and pressure of IT adoption and telecommunications, reducing paper usage. As such, over the five years through 2023-24, industry revenue is expected to contract at a compound annual rate of 2.9% to £3.1 billion. Some leading manufacturers like AW UK Holdings Ltd have exited the industry, contributing to the industry's downfall. Following the exit of some companies, the industry is consolidating, with many more prominent manufacturers acquiring smaller businesses. Companies in this industry manufacture paper and paperboard products from wood pulp and recycled materials. A large proportion of the industry’s output is intended for processing by downstream manufacturers, like cardboard packaging manufacturers. However, the industry also supplies finished products like newsprint, writing paper and paperboard liners. 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.
