Acquisitions and expansions have been the major strategies followed by the paper industry in all its business segments. Paper industry has witnessed significant developments in acquisitions and expansions in coated paper, uncoated paper, functional and intermediate chemicals, additives and other segments. The trend is observed across the globe in major paper markets such as China, the U.S., Germany and others. In August 2015, Sang-Hun Lee, CEO of Hansol Paper announced that Hansol would acquire R+S Group in Germany for optimized product mix and gain economies of scale. In July 2015, Barry-Wehmiller (BW) Papersystems which is an international supplier of paper and board sheeting had planned to acquire Bielomatik group, paper processing equipment manufacturer at an undisclosed sum.

Industry has also witnessed developments in paper chemicals. Mineral Technologies and Zhejiang Zhengda Paper Group had an agreement regarding production of 50,000 metric tons per year of coating-grade precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) in China at Zhejiang coated production plant dedicated to packaging industry. In July 2015, Appleton Coated Company had partnered with New Leaf Paper to market and sell its Reincarnation® coated paper.

As demand and supply should reside on same side, the production of the paper is increasing with the demand across the world, especially in the Asian countries followed by Europe and American markets. Hence, it is evident that the companies can find huge market potential and growth in this industry in the coming years.
