Efforts for improving education and literacy rate will act as a catalyst for paper production activities. Both developing and developed nations are striving to enhance access to educational services, which will boost the consumption of paper, paperboard, and other wood-based products. The total government spending on education in EU accounted for more than 5.3% of the regional GDP in 2020 and 2021. With rapidly expanding population across Central & Eastern European countries and increasing awareness associated with the potential benefits of human welfare, paper consumption may accelerate.

Pulp & paper enzymes have emerged as popular alternatives to traditional chemicals used in paper production, owing to their sustainable nature. Stringent government regulations and intense environmental, political, and economic scrutiny are compelling paper and pulp manufacturers to adopt sustainable strategies for reducing the toxicity of industrial wastewater. Companies are exploring innovative methods to produce high-quality pulp and paper enzymes. Initiatives such as the ‘plastic ban’ and awareness regarding reusable or biodegradable packaging materials will further complement the use of these enzymes.

Rapid digitalization and the advent of paperless communication is a major restraining factors for the pulp & paper enzymes market value. A considerable number of businesses are inclined towards paperless communication for boosting productivity and achieving cost reduction across the organization. On average, 10,000 sheets of paper are used annually by a single employee, indicating the massive volumes of paper consumed. Paperless communication is eco-friendly and helps reduce the environmental implications of the paper industry. The potential of paperless operations in achieving a complete return on investment (ROI) within a year of implementation could be a major roadblock for the industry.

High tensile strength & bond formation boost cellulase enzyme demand

The pulp & paper enzymes market share from cellulase segment is estimated to reach 4,600 tons by 2030. These enzymes are used across a broad spectrum of industry verticals like textile, pulp and paper, detergent, biofuels, nutraceuticals, and food and beverage industries. A high preference for cellulase can be attributed to superior quality products made using this enzyme. For instance, paper made from fibers that are treated with modified cellulase offers better tensile strength and internal bond formation. Moreover, the efficacy of modified cellulase in separating ink particles from fiber during flotation deinking is fueling its demand among manufacturers.

The fiber modification segment is anticipated to witness over 7% CAGR from 2022-2030. Cellulase is commonly used to enhance fiber reactivity during chemical modification and dissolution procedures performed in the pulp industry. The enzyme enables high consistency pulp processing and is an economically advantageous method used by paper makers to lower capital and operating costs.

Impact of COVID-19 on pulp & paper enzymes market trends

The COVID-19 pandemic affected different aspects of the pulp and paper enzymes industry. Labor shortages, continuous lockdowns, social distancing norms, and rapid digitalization of workspaces slowed down production and consumption of paper sheets. However, the pandemic unlocked new opportunities for the industry. With booming e-commerce and a rising focus on safety and hygiene, the pandemic opened new avenues for paper manufacturers across paper-based personal hygiene products, medical-grade papers, corrugated packaging materials, food packaging products, and more. A substantial recovery in the space of logistics and supply chain will further foster industry trends.
