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

Document Highlights

  • Converted Paper Product Exports—Supported by a weaker exchange rate and improving U.S. demand, real exports of converted paper products grew to record highs in the first quarter of 2016.
  • Wood Fibre Prices—An abundant supply of sawmill residuals from Canada’s wood products industry, combined with a strong U.S. dollar, continues to put downward pressure on wood fibre prices. This has helped to relieve cost pressures for Canada’s paper products industry.
  • Pulp Oversupply—Over the next five years, Canadian pulp producers will be challenged by a new global environment, in which growth in pulp supply is expected to outpace demand.
