HONG KONG, NOV. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With increasing number of European tissue paper manufacturers finding new roots on American soil and the low cost Asian growing penetration in the European market - the dynamics of the industry are in a remarkable flux. What lies in the years ahead for the multi-billion tissue industry, the second in the world?
Additionally, continued economic concerns appear to have held growth stagnant for several EU countries, most importantly Italy which is the largest producer of T&T in the region representing 22% of the total capacity. Altering the focus from increased capacity to efficiency in production and sustainability, more and more mills are now looking at technological advancements to allow for reduced costs and higher quality production.
Tissue World Barcelona, the world leading platform of the tissue industry held from 17 - 19 March 2015 and attracting tissue professionals from over 90 countries, will address the causes and the consequences of this paramount shift by featuring compelling analyses, innovative ideas and technologies for the tissue global players, from suppliers to retailers.
Featuring over 25 unique presentations, the Tissue World Barcelona 2015 - Conference will see a stellar panel of high-level regional and international speakers.
