As an essential part of the manufacturing sector of India, the paper industry is associated with the economic wellbeing of the country.

Amongst the types of paper, paperboards and industrial packaging papers contribute the highest to the consumption volume of paper in India as compared to the other segments, namely writing and printing paper, newsprint and specialty paper. The market captured by paperboards and industrial packaging papers is closely linked to the growth in the packaging industry and industrial production in the country. With surging affluence of the Indian population, the demand for consumer goods is on a constant rise.
