This report examines the short-and medium-term economic and profitability outlook for Canada’s Paper Products Industry.

Document Highlights

Sanitary Paper Products—While global demand for printing and writing papers continues to decline, the outlook for sanitary paper products remains positive, supported by rising demand in both emerging and mature markets.

Exports—Although weak global growth constrained foreign demand for Canada’s paper products in 2016, a healthier outlook among the industry’s trading partners should support a pickup in industry exports starting next year.

Domestic Economy—A sluggish Canadian economy and economic uncertainty have increased pessimism for firms and consumers alike. If this situation persists, it will translate into weaker spending on paper products.
