Overview of the Paper Industry in India
The Indian paper industry accounts for about 1.6% of the world's production of paper and paperboard. The estimated turnover of the industry is 25,000 crore (USD 5.95 billion) and its contribution to the exchequer is around 2,918 crore. The industry was de-licensed effective July 1997 by the Government of India & foreign participation is permissible. Most of the paper mills have been in existence for a long time and hence present technologies fall in a wide spectrum ranging from the oldest to the most modern. Paper in India is 40% hardwood and bamboo fibre, 30% agro waste and 30 % recycled fibre. Newsprint and publication paper consumption account for 2 million tonnes, of which 1.2 million tonnes of newsprint paper is manufactured in India and the remaining 0.8 million tonnes is imported.
The Indian paper industry has the top 15 global players with an output of more than 6 million tonnes annually with an estimated turnover of 150,000 million. The Indian paper industry is riding on a strong demand and has an expanding mood to meet the projected demand of 8 million tonnes by 2010 & 13 million tonnes by 2020.
The demand for paper was around 8% from 2002-07, while newsprint registered a growth of 13% and writing & printing, container board, carton board and others registered a growth of 5%, 11%, 9% and 1% respectively. So far, the growth in the paper industry has mirrored the growth in GDP and has grown 6-7 % on average over the last few years. India is the fastest growing market for paper globally and it presents an exciting scenario. Paper consumption is poised for a big leap forward in sync with economic growth and is estimated to touch 13.95 million tons by 2015-16.
The industry provides employment to more than 0.12 million people directly and 0.34 million people indirectly. Some of the paper products are sheet paper, paper boxes, tissues, paper bags, stationery, envelopes, and printed-paper products such as books, periodicals, and newspapers. Specialty papers like sandpaper, blueprint paper, and carbon paper are not a part of the paper products industry.
