The growth in the production of packaging paper is expected to drive the demand for packaging paper. The growing penetration of paper-based packaging in the food & beverage industry is another factor likely to drive the demand for paper chemicals during the forecast period. However, the declined production of white paper due to digitization is a major factor restraining the market.
