The pulp and paper industry involves a lot of chemicals. The binders are used to bind the fillers to fibers. Bleaching agents are used to remove the pigments in the pulp. Fillers are used to lower the amount of fiber used in making papers. Sizing agents are used to maintain some water resistance of the paper for its usability in writing. Other chemicals added are strengthening agents, retention agents, etc.
Market Dynamics of the Global Pulp and Paper Chemical Market
Growth of the industry in the developing regions of Asia-Pacific and South America
Paper recycling is gaining importance
Strict regulations concerning water treatment

Global Pulp and Paper Chemical Market Segmentation
The market can be segmented by the chemicals used (binders, bleaching agents, fillers, pulping agents, sizing agents and others) and on end-user industry (newsprint paper, packaging & industrial papers, printing & writing papers, pulp mills & deinking plants, tissue paper and others). The market has also been segmented geographically into the Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America and MEA. In terms of consumption in 2015 the Asia-Pacific region led the market, as it was able to attract a number of paper production facilities; followed by Europe and North America. This high production in the Asia-Pacific region was driven by a rapid economic growth in developing nations experienced in the recent years. Printing & writing papers industry along with pulp mills & deinking industry occupy the major share of the market. On the basis of chemicals used, the fillers and the binders are the major segments of the market in terms of revenue.
