Specialty paper

Specialty paper is paper with special purposes and relatively small output. There are many types of specialty paper, which is a general term for various special-purpose papers or art papers. Now sellers refer to art papers such as embossed paper as specialty papers, mainly to simplify the noun confusion caused by the wide variety.


my country's production of special paper and paperboard has increased from 2.8 million tons in 2016 to 4.05 million tons in 2020, with an average annual compound growth rate of 9.67%, and the output growth rate has remained at a high level. In recent years, the growth rate of my country's special paper production has slowed down. The output in 2021 will be 3.95 million tons, a year-on-year decrease of 2.47%, which is consistent with the growth rate of global special paper production. my country's special paper production is expected to maintain steady growth in the future. Production is expected to rebound in 2022, reaching about 4.12 million tons in 2022.


According to statistics, my country's consumption of special paper has maintained growth from 2016 to 2020, with an average annual compound growth rate of 10.05%. It has fallen back in 2021, reaching 3.12 million tons, a year-on-year decrease of 5.45%. It is expected that consumption will rebound in 2022 as production increases, and consumption in 2022 will reach about 3.3 million tons.


With the continuous development of economy and technological advancement, diversified demands have enriched the types of special paper. For example: special packaging paper such as food packaging paper and medical packaging paper, construction paper such as decorative base paper and wallpaper base paper, business communication paper such as carbonless paper and thermal paper, label paper such as glassine paper, etc. Among them, food packaging paper production accounts for the largest proportion of special paper at 32%, followed by decorative base paper accounting for 15%.


With the continuous rise of my country's special paper companies, the manufacturing technology and level of special paper of high-quality companies have gradually reached high international standards. At the same time, the One Belt and One Road policy and the construction of the New Land-Sea Corridor have also awakened overseas demand for the special paper market from the policy side. Relying on price advantages and policy advantages, my country's special paper and paperboard are booming in the international market. According to data, China's import volume of special paper in 2022 will be 170,000 tons, and its export volume will be 1.55 million tons.


Due to the wide variety of special paper segments, there are many market participants and the market competition is relatively loose. However, in some market segments of specific paper, the market concentration is high due to high technical barriers and customer barriers. Overall, my country's per capita consumption of special paper is still significantly lower than that of some developed countries, so future growth potential is still considerable, especially in some subdivided varieties. It is expected that in the future, the "paper instead of plastic" market in the food and beverage field, which will be spawned under the background of the "plastic restriction order", and the new consumer demand brought about by the upgrading of the consumption structure will bring huge market opportunities.


1. Opportunities to replace plastic with paper under the “plastic restriction order”. In the context of the increasingly stringent "plastic restriction orders" around the world, the market for paper-based materials to replace plastic products will be unlimited. Especially in the food and beverage industry, as the penetration rate of e-commerce continues to increase and people's living standards improve, the substitute market for paper-based functional materials will also grow exponentially, especially in the takeout and tea markets. Paper-based functional material companies will gain unprecedented development opportunities in this huge market prospect with their unique technical advantages. 2. The transformation and upgrading of the consumption structure has brought about many changes in people's lives and the demand for paper-based functional materials. In the future, food packaging materials, label release materials, tobacco sheet supporting materials, transfer printing series materials and other varieties will generate growing market demand due to the upgrading of the consumption structure, providing new profit growth points for paper-based functional material companies . 3. The rapid improvement of paper-based functional material manufacturing technology has brought rapid growth in production efficiency. The rapid layout of smart factories and MES systems is also changing the business model of the entire paper-based functional materials industry.
