Hardwood fibre requirements of the Indian pulp and paper industry

Hardwood fibre requirements of the Indian pulp and paper industry

In 2006, the Gottstein Trustees commissioned a market review to investigate the Indian
wood based pulp and paper industry. The field component of this visit encompassed a
review of mills, infrastructure and potential resource supply opportunities for Australian
growers and exporters. This report summarises the findings of this Fellowship including
current market conditions regarding supply and consumption of hardwood fibre for pulp
and paper manufacturing. The types of opportunities available from Australia are
considered in reference to current and projected available supply and demand scenarios.
