The demand for paper and board products will grow over the next decade.

According to McKinsey & Co in its report on Pulp, paper, and packaging in the next decade: Transformational change, the graphic-paper market will continue decline worldwide but it will be balanced by increased demand for packaging and tissue products.  It also believes the demand for fiber-based products will increase globally, with some segments growing faster than others.
