AFRY Long-term Outlook: World Paper Markets up to 2035

Product information

Overview Arrow pointing right

AFRY's 13th World Paper Markets edition now features online access to all data and graphics visualisation.

The study provides an invaluable strategic platform and essential information for all business participants across the paper industry cluster, including pulp and paper companies, suppliers of machinery, equipment, chemicals and related inputs, investors, financiers, institutions, paper merchants and traders, logistics companies, and other stakeholders.

How it works Arrow pointing right

In addition to the report, data and charts will be available and visualised via a browser based online platform. Users can independently decide on the required level of detail.

This provides the option to download data behind the report charts. Furthermore a ‘free browse’ option enables you to merge data across regions or grades. Annual data and forecast updates will be available through the online platform as well. Overall, this lets you combine, visualise and download the most recent data as defined by your needs.

To meet the various needs of our clients, we have designed two different types of digital access in addition to the full PDF report. The first option includes digital data tool access for up to 10 users for one year, which can also be customised to include additional users. The second option includes also data and forecast updates in the fourth quarter of 2021 and 2022.

We would be delighted to schedule a demo of the digital tool upon request.
