Indian Paper Industry Structure of the paper industry PWP (Writing & Printing Paper):
Demand for PWP segment is stable due to diverse end user segments and its relatively inelastic demand.
IBP (Industrial Paper & Board):
IBP is mainly used in Packaging and has linkages with economic cycles. The demand growth can be affected by the consumption of FMCG sector and industrial activity.
Newspaper (NP):
NP largely derives its demand from the print media and the levels of pagination in the newspapers which generally tend to be higher during economic upturns on account of higher advertisement budgets. The volatility in the domestic newspaper segment is further accentuated by zero import duty protection, higher bargaining power of buyers i.e. media publishing houses which have higher flexibility to import in relation to consumers in PWP & IBP
 
segments. This segment is largely imported now as the cost and quality of imported paper is much better than the ones that are available in the domestic market.

IPB caters to packaging and is the largest segment in the domestic paper industry accounting for 50% of the total paper consumption. Most of the smaller players are present in this segment as most products of IBP are made from recycled paper boards thereby limiting the upfront capital investments towards pulping capacities. Kraft paper which is largely used for manufacturing corrugated containers is the largest segment accounting for 54% of IBP segment. Duplex Boards which has a 36% share of IBP segment (Largely made from recycled paper) is used for packaging of FMCG goods sold in small containers.

Though this segment accounts for only 4% of IBP segment it is the most value added segment with consumption growth of 20% over the last 5 years. The level of industrial activity and consumer spending is driven by economic growth; pricing of these product segments is also impacted by economic cycles.
