DUBLIN, Nov. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global and Chinese Dissolving Pulp Industry Report, 2012-2015" report to their offering. 

Dissolving pulp refers to the pulp with the cellulose content above 90%, including wood pulp, bamboo pulp and cotton pulp. The report touches on the first two categories.

In the world, the dissolving pulp capacity concentrates in regions with abundant forest resources such as North America, South Africa and Brazil. Between 2011 and 2012, China's intensive release of dissolving pulp capacity made it possible to become one of the major producing regions of dissolving pulp all across the globe. Major dissolving pulp producers worldwide include Aditya Birla, Sappi, Sateri, Rayonier, Buckeye, and Lenzing, the combined capacity of which in 2012 accounted for 61.4% of the world's total.

In 2010, the dissolving pulp capacity of China was no more than 240,000 tons, with the import dependence rate surpassing 80%. The considerable demand for dissolving pulp encouraged many companies to build new dissolving pulp projects, leading to the substantial rise in capacity to 937,500 tons by 2012. However, due to the bleak demand in global textile market as well as the international low-priced dissolving pulp, China-made dissolving pulp products took a nosedive in price, forcing most industrial players to slash their output and even suspend their production in order to reduce losses. In 2012, China's dissolving pulp output was just about 335,000 tons, with the operating rate down to 35.7%.
