With the improvement of people's quality of life and the enhancement of health awareness, the scope of paper consumption has been continuously expanded. Paper products have jumped out of the circle as the carrier of culture, education and life, and become one of the basic raw materials necessary for all industries of the national economy. The continuous expansion of the use range of paper products also makes the variety of paper products increase day by day, and new special paper products continue to emerge, such as various special paper towels, VCD paper, glasses paper, lens paper, etc. In addition, paper clothes and trousers, paper hats, paper socks, etc. are unique to people who have been away on business for many years; The emergence of paper bed sheets and paper pillows has reduced the burden on staff in hotels and trains; When paper products enter the hospital, they not only bring good news to doctors, nurses and patients, but also share the worries and solve the difficulties for waiters...
replacing plastic packaging and bag packaging with paper packaging has become a new trend in the packaging market. People's attention to environmental protection has also made paper packaging a leading product in the packaging market, and there is a great trend to gradually replace plastic packaging products. Some data show that the pace of replacing plastic with paper has affected China's international trade business, because all kinds of products packaged in plastic are increasingly discriminated against and excluded in international trade. A chemical plant in Shijiazhuang exported phosphoric acid to Europe, but it was rejected by the foreign party on the grounds of environmental pollution because it was packed in plastic bags. In order to adapt to the international trend, China's packaging industry is adjusting the types of packaging products, and the policy of replacing plastic with paper is also being formulated
since July, 1999, plastic tableware is no longer allowed on railway passenger cars, and all of them are replaced by paper fast food tableware. People concerned believe that paper packaging will gradually replace cloth bags, gunny bags and plastic bags. The packaging of grain and some edible goods will gradually be replaced by paper bags. The material for making paper bags is a kind of flexible paper bag paper, which is 1.5 times stronger than ordinary paper. Some people have done experiments. A paper bag filled with 25 kg of flour is composed of four layers of stretchable paper, which can fall freely from a height of 1.5 meters for 15 times without damage. The outstanding advantages of paper bag packaging of grain are non-toxic, tasteless and pollution-free, which meets the national food hygiene standards. Moreover, paper bags have better sealing performance than cloth bags, which can prevent flour leakage and dust intrusion. Under the same conditions, the shelf life of grain packaged in paper bags can be extended by 2-3 months
due to the increasing lack of wood resources and the need of environmental protection, some foreign manufacturers even began to produce paper furniture. Compared with furniture made of other materials, paper furniture has the advantages of lightness and easy handling. Punching a punch with spherical ends against a sample clamped in the cushion mold and film to form a dent, etc. they are usually made of extra strong cardboard and coated with vinyl coating on the surface, and their hardness is not inferior to furniture made of other materials. Paper furniture is very practical and cheap. Its price is only 1/3 of that of ordinary wooden furniture. And the recovery rate is high, which can be recycled 100%. The implication of the first "9" is eternal reproduction, which has a unique charm
in fact, since the reform and opening up, China's paper production has increased by an average of about 10% annually, 6.7 percentage points higher than the world average level in the same period. In recent years, China's paper consumption has increased at a rate of 8% - 9%, basically keeping pace with the growth of the national economy. For example, the market share of napkins and high-end toilet rolls has also expanded rapidly in recent years. In 1996, napkins accounted for 12% of paper products; Among the toilet paper used, medium and high-end products account for 6%. Some data show that the per capita annual consumption of toilet paper products in China has increased from 0.5 kg in 1994 to 1.5 kg at present, but there is still a big gap compared with the per capita consumption level of more than 10 kg in developed countries
it is estimated that at present, the demand for paper cups in China is about 2billion, and the annual demand for disposable fast food boxes is about 4.6 billion. In addition, tableware such as cartons and paper dinner plates are also increasingly favored by people. China's women of school age actually need 180 sanitary napkins per person. The potential market demand in the country is about 59.4 billion, and the current annual consumption is only about 22.5 billion. Obviously, there is still a great market potential; In China, there are about 5000 babies and people over the age of 80 who need diapers every year. There are million people with the advantages of fast cooling speed and low noise, and the annual demand is 200billion pieces. However, at present, the prevalence rate of paper diapers in China is less than 1%, which is far from 50% in developed countries. At present, China's per capita annual paper consumption is only about 25 kg, lower than the world's per capita consumption of 55 kg, and further inferior to the consumption level of more than 300 kg in developed countries
however, with 38 review experts and representatives of automobile OEMs signing at the launch ceremony and witnessing the enrichment and improvement of people's material and cultural life, China's demand for various paper products will grow at a faster rate for a long time in the future. In 2000, China's demand for paper and paperboard was 36million tons. In addition to domestic production of 30million tons, 6million tons were imported. Some experts predict that by 2010, the demand for paper and paperboard in China will be 60million tons to 70million tons, and the per capita consumption will be 50kg, close to the world per capita consumption level. In other words, the consumption of domestic paper and paperboard will double in the next decade. At that time, its output value will exceed that of steel, cement, coal and oil, and become the main consumer goods next to grain
relevant people believe that the use of paper products in China is growing rapidly, but the contradiction between supply and demand is prominent, especially the import of 1/6 of high-grade coated paper, which has a large market gap. Among the 6.9126 million tons of paper products imported in 1999, the vast majority were high-grade paper products, including 1039400 tons of coated paper. With the development of social economy, China's paper consumption is bound to develop towards high-end, special and multi variety, and the quality requirements of various paper products will be higher and higher. It is estimated that by 2010, more than 90% of China's total consumption of 60million tons to 70million tons will be consumption of modern paper products. The transformation of the consumption structure of paper products has provided new development opportunities for domestic paper enterprises, and the production scale, technical content, product structure and management ability of enterprises will become the key to determine the victory or defeat of the competition.
