Market Restraints:

Increasing concerns over deforestation and operational concerns for production material is expected to restrict the market growth. About 14% of deforestation is done in Europe to satisfy the huge appetite for paper goods. This amounts to the destruction of around 4.1 Billion hectares of forest each year in the name of a paper application, including packaging.

Growing price of raw materials is again expected to hamper market growth. For instance, in April 2021, Essity announced price increases for its Consumer Tissue owing to the result of higher raw material costs. Additionally, in June 2021, Sappi Europe announced a price increase for all its woodfree coated and woodfree uncoated paper grades by 7 to 10 % effective from 1st June 2021 for all markets in Europe.

Market Opportunities:

The market is expected to grow in the future, owing to the increasing spending power of the customers and the growing demand for soft and premium quality away-from-home tissue paper by the younger generation. Moreover, manufacturers of away-from-home tissue and hygiene products established online selling sites, as local institutional consumers are better informed and more confident about the advantages of opting for digital shopping platforms. This factor is expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities to the market.

Many market players are working on innovative solutions to improve customer experience. For instance, in March 2021, Navigator Company launched a new generation of tissue paper that is impregnated with a soap called Amoos AquactiveTM, whose innovative technology, Aquactive, is activated when the paper comes in contact with water, immediately producing soap foam.

Market Trends/Key Takeaways:

Growing popularity of ready-to-eat food products is expected to uplift the market growth over the forecast period. For instance, many ready-to-eat foods or fast food are wrapped in the wrapping tissue paper. According to the Confederation of European Paper Industries 2021 report, the total production and consumption of wrapping paper accounted for 4056 thousand metric tons and 2647 thousand metric tons in 2019 across Europe.

Increasing adoption of growth strategy by key players in the market is also expected to be one of the trend in the market. For instance, in November 2021, DoorDash Inc. acquired Finnish food-delivery startup Wolt Enterprises Oy for about USD 8 billion as it seeks to stay ahead of rivals in the race to satisfy soaring demand for fast delivery of everything from food to prescriptions and pet supplies.
