New York (US), June 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stone-Paper Market Overview

According to a Comprehensive Report by MRFR/Market Research Future (MRFR), "Stone-Paper Market Information by Product Type, Material Type, Application, and Distribution Channel, and Region - Forecast till 2030", The stone-paper market could develop at a rate of 7.20 percent between 2022 and 2030, touching about USD 867.2 million by 2030.

Market Synopsis

For many years, conventional paper derived from wood pulp has been in use. Books, notebooks, packing, wrapping, decoration, printing, painting, labeling, and other items all use it. In daily life, it is extensively utilized. Deforestation has increased due to the rising demand for paper, nevertheless. Given the lengthy period of time, it takes a tree to grow again, the level of deforestation is unsustainable. As a result, there have been a number of tests, findings, and developments to identify a viable eco-friendly alternative to traditional paper.

Market Drivers:

Wood pulp is used to make traditional paper, which is used for writing, printing, books, notebooks, packing, etc. With so many trees being cut down to obtain raw materials, the wood pulp and paper industry is no longer viable. Trees are consumed at a rate that is greater than their rate of growth. To meet the needs of the paper-making business, large areas of forest cover have been destroyed. Unchecked deforestation has decreased the global carbon sink, ultimately contributing to the current climate change issue. Therefore, there is a renewed effort to produce and consume economical, high-quality, sustainable, and environmentally friendly products like stone paper.

Stone paper lessens reliance on trees, which lowers deforestation and advances global sustainable development goals. They are premium goods with characteristics like strong draw strength, water resistance, and recycling. They are employed in packaging, writing, and printing. They are even used to create notebooks, books, and cardboard. They have uses in the logistics, food and beverage, storage, and FMCG industries. The worldwide stone paper market will expand due to the rising demand for sustainable and eco-friendly products.

The expansion of the packaging industry has also been aided by the rise of internet usage and e-commerce, which has increased demand for packaging supplies. As retail chains selling pre-packaged items proliferate in emerging nations, the market for stone paper will grow. The market for stone paper will benefit from the urgent need to embrace sustainable development models because stone paper cannot be produced using wood pulp, which is a growing danger from climate change.Papers made traditionally from wood pulp resulted in unsustainably cutting down trees, which eventually hurts the environment by lowering the global carbon sink. Utilizing stone paper for packaging has become a common concept in many sectors, and is now seen as a sustainable and environmentally friendly practice because of the massive global demand for packaging. As a result, it is anticipated that the growing markets for food and beverage, medicines, personal care, and packaging in developing nations will present appealing opportunities for the stone paper industry.

Market Restraints:

Given the technological restrictions, a good conventional paper's characteristics and attributes cannot be fully mirrored by a stone paper. For instance, stone paper can't be printed well on personal printers. Stone paper's dependability and durability are called into doubt because of the deterioration that results from prolonged sunshine or UV exposure. With temporary technology, the production scale cannot be raised to that of traditional paper. The global stone paper market has suffered as a result of the shift towards automation and digitization and the consequent decrease in paper usage. Therefore, the growth of the stone paper market would be hampered by technological limits.
