Packaging paper & board segment caters to industries such as FMCG, food & beverage, pharmaceutical, textiles, etc. Demand for Packaging Paper & Board segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.9% and reach 9.7 million tonnes in FY19 due to factors such as increased urbanization, requirement of better quality packaging of FMCG products marketed through organized retail, and increasing preference for ready-to-eat foods.

“The prospect of Kraft paper market is very good especially the southern and western India paper mills are eyeing to export of packaging paper, creating a demand gap for us. Eventually their customers will be diverted to us. The momentum in packaging paper's demand will remain sustainable due to E-commerce, Pharmacy and FMCG growth” explained by Mr. Hardik Patel, Director of Om Sree Papertek Pvt. Ltd. to The Pulp and Paper Times.

After successful trial run of Kraft paper production, this highly automatic Paper Mill is ready for commercial operation. “Yes, we are excited to have started the commercial operation of 250 TPD paper production plant. We have invested Rs. 80 Cr. in this state-of-art structure aiming to produce 120 to 350 GSM paper with 18 to 35 BF. We are the one of the Kraft paper mill in India which has installed the paper machine above 5.5 meter height from the floor level. It gives machine a vacuum advantage.” Mr Patel said. “We have imported all paper machines and critical component from China. Our Deckle of machine is 4.2 (finished) meter and speed is designed up to 400 m/m. We have sourced the entire latest configuration to make our plant highly automatic providing 250 employment. Our Framing of machine is done by JMC Papertech. We also have installed 'ETP' facilities in the mill to follow all the environment compliances” Mr. Patel described.

“We put this paper mill with clear intention of producing good quality paper for corrugators. There is only one or two paper mill in south India producing standard quality packaging paper. In coming future, there will be high RCT paper demand. We have placed very strong pulping line and deployed technically competent people to produce high RCT paper.” Mr. Patel said.

According to the Care Rating, For the Indian paper industry, strong economic growth has been accompanied by equally robust demand for paper. The demand drivers and growth triggers have come from a combination of factors such as rising income levels, growing per capita expenditure, rapid urbanization and a larger proportion of earning population which is expected to lead consumption and there is enormous potential for the paper industry in the country. CARE Ratings expects that the overall paper demand growing at a CAGR of 6.6% is likely to touch 18.5 million tonnes in 2018-19.

According to CRISIL study last year “WPP players have also benefited from a 20-30% reduction in power cost per MT over the past five years. The reduction rode on the players' focus on investing – almost Rs 500-600 crore in the past five years – in captive power generation, and their increased flexibility to use cheaper fuels. While lower coal and petcoke prices have helped, the plants – both new and refurbished – consume 8-10% less power per MT of paper produced.”
