Preliminary Statistics 2017

Paper and board production increases by 1.5%, the highest annual rise since 2010

CEPI member countries’ paper and board production has increased by 1.5% in 2017 compared to the previous year, according to preliminary figures. Total production in 2017 was around 92.3 million tonnes. New capacities and upgrade of existing ones have more than compensated for closures in 2017, similar to 2016.

World paper and board production has also increased by 1.5% in 2017, almost reaching 420 million tonnes according to very first estimates. Japan has registered a moderate growth  while the US was stable. Production in Canada, South Korea and India contracted. China has grown at a higher speed than the previous year: +4.7% in 2017 against +2.9% in 2016. Brazil and Russia also recorded strong growth.
