Kraft paper is a paper or paperboard with a higher tear resistance and strength. It is mostly used in the packaging industry and is created from wood pulp or recycled materials with chemicals added to boost the strength, thickness, and durability of the fiber while preserving its light weight. Typically, chemicals are added to kraft paper to increase its thickness, strength, and durability while preserving its low weight. Colored kraft paper, white or bleached kraft paper, black kraft paper, white or bleached kraft paper, natural recycled kraft paper, and printed craft paper are some of the most prevalent forms of kraft paper. Sacks, envelopes, bags & pouches, composite cans, and cartons are only a few of the applications. The demand for kraft papers has increased as environmental concerns about usage of recyclable and biodegradable packaging have grown. Kraft papers are increasingly being made from natural recycled materials, which have less strength than virgin natural craft paper but are more eco-friendly and strong enough to fill vacant applications. The growth of the worldwide kraft paper market is primarily driven by the expanding packaging and paper industries.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

  • The spread of COVID-19 hampered kraft paper production, supply, and demand, which had a detrimental impact on the market. As the COVID-19 pandemic spread over the world, governments in a number of countries imposed harsh curfews, preventing people from going outside.
  • The lockout resulted in the closure of manufacturing operations and staff shortage, which affected the production of kraft paper. The interruption of the supply chain, as well as the closure of distribution outlets such as specialized stores, has lowered kraft paper sales.
  • Due to the closure of hotels and restaurants, the demand for kraft paper used in the food packaging business has decreased. Although the lockdown limitations are gradually being lifted, restaurants are progressively reopening with just take-out options. This could help boost kraft paper sales in the short term.

Top Impacting Factors

  • The unbleached paper segment is predicted to grow at a quicker rate during the forecast period due to a growing range of uses across sectors for packaging and transportation of large objects.
  • The industrial bags segment is likely to maintain its revenue during the forecast period due to surge in demand for industrial bags, particularly from the construction industry. The global construction industry's expansion, particularly in developing nations, has raised the demand for industrial bags and propelled the global kraft paper market forward.
  • The building & construction application segment is expected to account for the greatest revenue share in the global kraft paper market and retain its dominance during the forecast period. Increased investment in modernization and extension in infrastructure in developing nations, as well as a rise in trend of smart cities and projects, are expected to drive market growth.
  • The rise in popularity of e-commerce and the developments that have accompanied it have resulted in the premiumization of kraft packaging. This includes kraft paper, which can handle high-quality images in small print runs.

Market Trends

Food is Expected to Account for a Significant Portion of the Market

Food goods such as flour, sugar, starch, food additives, processed & dried fruit, eggs, or milk are commonly transported using kraft paper. The sack kraft for food packaging, which is commonly used in the form of open mouth or valve sacks, has two to three layers of paper and is frequently paired with a polyethylene (PE) free film tube in liner and/or coated paper.

Consumer preferences, as well as FDA green rules in many locations, encourage the use of sack kraft packaging in the food business. Many innovations have come from the European paper bag and sack kraft paper industries, which have made paper sacks ideal food packing. Increased popularity of quick-service restaurants among urban youth, along with government restrictions imposing plastic prohibitions, has raised sack packing paper production and, as a result, their use in the food and beverage business.

Innovations in Kraft Paper and Utilization of Same in Industries is Expected to Flourish the Market

The white kraft paper market is dynamic due to the surge in ongoing development in the packaging business. White kraft paper is widely used in the packaging business for a number of applications, since it can meet the needs of customers for flexibility, barrier protection, and strength. The growth in demand for environmentally friendly and biodegradable packaging is an amazing opportunity for kraft paper producers. White kraft paper has proven to be a cost-effective and highly practical material for the production of heavy-duty corrugated boxes and bags in industrial settings. Specialty packaging constructed of white kraft paper is likewise in high demand. The printing and publishing industry uses white kraft paper to print magazines, newspapers, pamphlets, and brochures.

The high porous extensible bag kraft paper eliminates the perforation procedure by allowing proper deaeration of sacks during packaging. Packaging solutions are made in high-speed machines, which necessitate stiffness and exceptional surface smoothness, as well as superior run ability. Manufacturing, laminating, and wrapping are all done with the extensible sack kraft paper.
