Research and Markets: Global and China Dissolving Pulp Industry Report, 2014-2017

By Business Wire News   


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global and China Dissolving Pulp Industry Report, 2014-2017” report to their offering.

Dissolving pulp refers to the pulp with cellulose content above 90%, mainly including wood pulp, bamboo pulp and cotton pulp (dissolving pulp in this report just involves wood and bamboo pulps), and finding application mainly in viscose fiber downstream.

In 2014, there were a great number of newly-added capacities for dissolving pulp, such as Sappi’s 330 t/a capacity in North America, Double A (Thailand)’s 175 kt/a capacity, and 110 kt/a capacity of OJI (Japan). However, due to constantly-depressed downstream viscose fiber market, price of dissolving pulp continued to drop, being USD800/ton around at the end of 2014.

In 2015, there are still several dissolving pulp projects under construction, for instance, Lenzing is expanding its dissolving pulp capacity, Aditya Birla builds a 200 kt/a capacity in Laos, and Domtar (Canada) has started 516 kt/a dissolving pulp project in the beginning of 2015.

The world’s dissolving pulp industry features quite high concentration and key industrial players consist of Sappi, Aditya Birla, Lenzing, Bracell, Rayonier, etc. In 2014, the total dissolving pulp capacity of the aforesaid five producers accounted for roughly 53.3% of global total, in particular, Sappi owned 1.34 million t/a capacity, holding 18.9% in global total, and set up production bases in South Africa and North America.

China’s dissolving pulp capacity soared from 2011, and had climbed to 1.2 million tons around at the end of 2014, making up 17% of the global total, but due to lack of forest resources, Chinese dissolving pulp requires high production costs and thus shows weak competitiveness.
