From 2011 to 2015, sales of soluble wood pulp in the world increased by 38.3%: from 4.6 million tons to 6.4 million tons. Annually, sales in the world increased by an average of 8.5% compared to the previous year.
One of the priorities for the use of soluble wood pulp is the production of viscose fiber, demonstrating long-term steady growth. The reason for the increase in the production of viscose is the constant expansion of its scope: from sewing products to technical goods.
Under the influence of growing demand, the volume of soluble wood pulp production in the world increased by 40.0% in 2011-2015: from 4.8 million tons to 6.7 million tons. Production annually grew by an average of 8.9%.
The industry is actively undergoing renewal processes: enterprises with outdated material and technical base are being closed (quite a few of such cases were noted in Canada), new capacities are being introduced. The cost of raw materials is also decreasing: the production of soluble cellulose from early ripening wood produced on artificially grown plantations is becoming common. Large areas of artificial plantations of eucalyptus and araucaria (subtropical pine) are found in Brazil, South Africa, Indonesia and Portugal.
According to BusinesStat, in 2016-2020, the global production of soluble wood pulp will continue to grow - an average of 5.7% annually. In 2020, the value of the indicator will reach 8.8 million tons.
