A snapshot of Japanese Paper Industry by Wire & Fabric

Paper and Paperboards Statistic of Japan from Japan Paper Association

Paper and Paperboard Production in Japan

Paper and paperboard production in 2011 was 26,609 thousand tonnes, a 2.8% decrease over the previous year.

Paper and Paperboard Production

Exports and Imports of Paper Japan

Japanese pulp and paper industry is a domestic demand-oriented industry, as export and import ratio of paper and paperboard have both remained at 5% level. Exports and imports in 2010 are 1.46 million tons and 1.79 million tons, respectively.

Raw Materialfor Paer making Japan

Japanese pulp and paper industry has been promoting the use of recovered paper as raw material. During the period from 1990 through 2007, recovered paper consumption increased by 4.8 million tons whereas woodpulp consumption declined. However, with the decreased demand for paper and paperboard due to the global recession triggered by the Lehman Shock in 2008, raw material consumption in 2009 and 2010 fell much below 2008 levels.

In 2010, 62.5 percent of raw material was secured by recovered paper, which was among the top in the world.

Raw Material

Pulpwood

Pulpwood consumption had remained almost unchanged before the Lehman Shock. But after the event, with the decrease in demand for paper and paperboard, pulpwood consumption decreased.
Import ratio of pulpwood has remained almost unchanged.

* Both domestic and imported pulpwood come from forest residues, logs unsuitable for lumber, and from plantations.
