Coated Wood Free Paper Market: Overview
Coated wood free papers are a variety of wood free paper manufactured chiefly with the use of chemical pulp, including minor quantities of mechanical pulp. These papers may also contain a variety of recycled fibres. The higher quality of these papers as compared to paper made from mechanical wood pulp make them an excellent option for very high-quality printing applications for commercial purposes. These multi-coated papers having several coating layers on each side of the paper have improved surface finish and printability. Change in material used to provide the topcoat allows for the production of the desired finish on the surface such as silk, gloss, and matt.
In the past few years, there has been a vast surge in the overall level of consumption of woodfree papers owing to their qualitative as well as environment-related benefits as compared to papers made completely from wood fibre. This has provided promising growth prospects to the global coated wood free paper market. The increased awareness regarding the need to use recyclable papers and the rising demand for environment-friendly printing solutions are expected to provide fillip to the market in the next few years as well. Moreover, the demand for high-end printing solutions for a number of applications has also significantly increased over the years, driving the market.

Enhanced Features and Advantages of Coated Wood Free Papers Over Traditional Wood-based Papers Driving Demand
The chemical procedure for the production of wood-free paper requires 50% wood, which is nearly half the amount compared to wood-containing paper. In recent years, consumption of coated wood free papers has increased owing to its added advantages. The narrow particle size distribution of coated wood free paper contributes to enhanced fiber coverage and sheet smoothness. It has ability to control coating layer pore size and volume allows better ink trapping and reduced blister potential on dying, which leads to better printability. Additionally, these are ideal for all types of printing and can be fully recycled. These key advantages have increased demand for coated wood free papers.
Rising awareness related to conservation of forest has led companies to increase manufacturing of wood free papers. Further, stringent regulations set by governments of various counties has decreased deforestation, which resulted in shifting manufacturers’ focus towards increasing production of coated wood free papers. Additionally, easy availability, low cost, and improved shelf life of coated wood free papers have further boosted growth of the global market.
