  • Factors fuelling or dragging demand growth
  • China’s domestic recovered paper collection and whether it will catch up with demand growth
  • The potential and constraints of China’s domestic collection system
  • Size of China’s appetite for recovered paper in the upcoming five years
  • Where Chinese recovered paper imports will come from
  • Development of current import channels
  • What to expect in terms of regulations and government policies on recovered paper usage, collection and trade

Consistent growth of recovered paper demand for over a decade has made China a key market impacting the global demand and supply of recovered paper. However, from 2009 to 2010 imports decreased by 2 million tonnes. This was due, in part, to a continued rise in domestic collection and relatively high prices. In 2012 imports increased over the previous 2009 high of 28 million tonnes.

In 2013, China has seen slowing economic growth and sluggish paper and board demand. Understand how these conditions will impact China’s recovered paper demand and imports over the next 5 years with this new study.
