2015 Shanghai Pulp Week

As the leading consumer and producer of paper and paperboard globally, China is also the world’s largest importer of pulp and recovered paper.

In 2014, wood pulp consumption in China is estimated to amount to 26.3 million tons, of which 17.8 million tons wereimports. During the same period, China’s recovered paper consumption reached 72 million tons, with 28 million tons imported. As one of few growing markets for pulp worldwide, China has become the focal point of the global market pulp sector. As a result, the development trend of the Chinese pulp market is thus a critical indicator for other markets. Due to the slowdown of Chinese economy and downward trend in the global paper industry, the Chinese pulp and paper industry has faced some key challenges during the last few years. Falling paper and paperboard prices and “undervalued products” led to reduced profits and operational difficulties for many Chinese companies.
