CLEVELAND, Sept. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- US paper and paperboard production is forecast to reach 83.5 million short tons in 2021, according to Paper & Paperboard: United States, a report recently released by Freedonia Focus Reports.
Continued gains in production and sales of durable and nondurable goods that require packaging will support growth in paperboard output. Among the paper segments, output of packaging and industrial paper is expected to see the fastest gains as building construction activity will drive expansion in industrial paper production. In addition, rising nondurable goods production will boost packaging paper sales. Newsprint production is projected to see further declines due to competition from digital media.
