Coated paper is treated with a mixture of chemicals and materials to improve surface properties such as gloss, weight, smoothness, and ink retention. The coating materials typically used are clay, calcium carbonate, kaolinite, bentonite, and talc. Polymers, such as polyethylene and polyolefin, are used to impart waterproof and tear strength characteristics. Moreover, the coating material is mixed with certain chemical additives, such as resins and dispersants, to enhance wet strength and UV resistance. The coating makes the base paper less porous, which is ideal for printing applications.
 

Proliferating internet trade and the e-commerce industry are the prime factors driving the market growth. Rising popularity of home delivered food and household products creates an upsurge in packaging, which will drive the product demand in the upcoming years. Increasing demand for paper bags, grocery bags, waterproof bags for milk & fruit juice, and shopping bags are likely to augment the market growth over the forecast timeframe. Also, stringent regulations pertaining to plastic packaging are creating a radical shift toward paper packaging, further boosting the industry share.

Coated fine paper will account for a significant share in the coated paper market share over the study period. Coated fine paper is produced from chemically bleached pulp and contains lesser amount of mechanical pulp. The growth in the adoption of such papers can be attributed to its high grammage and excellent brightness of up to 96%. It is prominently used for offset printing applications to produce annual reports, magazines, advertising materials, and catalogues.
 

Coated groundwood paper is expected to be the fastest-growing segment owing to its smooth surface with significant reduction of ink absorbency capabilities. These papers are generally lightweight, finding applications in magazines, brochures, and catalogues. In addition, coated groundwood paper is eco-friendly and cost-effective. It also offers high stiffness and thickness required for printing books, calendars, and business communications.
 

Clay will hold the majority share as a popular coating material in the coated paper market over the study period. This can be attributed to the provision for a wide range of finishes based on the customer requirements. The finish ranges from high or dull gloss to matte finishes. Moreover, the brightness of the paper can also be altered, thereby boosting the segment share over the study period.
 

Online calendering will showcase the highest growth over the projected timeframe. This can be credited to the technological advancements along with faster calendaring process compared to the online calenders. Moreover, online calenders are available in a wide range of types including hard nip, soft nip, and multi nip calenders among others making them ideal for a wide range of applications.
