The sack and kraft paper market in 2025 is expected to reach some 20 million tonnes, which considers the best case outlook of the COVID-19 pandemic, while the both probable and pessimistic views will see a total of some 18 million tonnes being consumed annually by 2025, but with quite different short term impacts.
It is anticipated that the most probable outcome of the COVID-19 pandemic results in a decline in sack and kraft consumption of about 8% to 9% during 2020, amounting to a loss of some 1.5 million tonnes worth nearly $3 billion, with a 6.5% recovery in 2021, and annual growth of around 2% thereafter to 2025.
