The chemicals that are used are specially made for the treatment of pulp and fiber in-turn used to manufacture different grades of paper. By helping to produce short and long fibers from timber, bleaching of pulp to impart color, and finally manufacturing paper by improving process and functional properties of paper. Indonesia remains one of the major pulp and paper market globally, with growing demand from domestic as well as countries such as China.

Continuing growth in demand for tissue, printing & writing paper, shopping bags, food packaging, specialty boards and cartons are increasing demand for pulp & paper chemicals in the country.

The report states that Sumatra and Java islands are the key regions where the demand for pulp & paper chemicals is the highest in usage due to large number of paper processing plants based in these regions. Abundance forest reserves also make Sumatra & Java regions the most exciting places to invest in pulp & paper sector.

Indonesia is on its way to be the major player in the market for pulp and chemicals on account of increasing government support to invest more on the infrastructural needs for the economy to thrive as well as to create a business friendly environment. Thus, helps in making pulp and paper industry a profitable business for the country.

As per some of the Industry experts like Karan Chechi, Research Director, TechSci Research, A research based global management consultant firm, “Indonesia is on the cusp of emerging as a major market for pulp and paper as rising demand for graphic and specialty paper, and continuous capacity additions to address the rising demand for pulp and paper chemicals in domestic market as well as International market. However, growing usage of digital display technologies in commercial as well as in residential markets is expected to hinder the use of paper in printing and writing applications, which would in-turn affect the consumption of pulp and paper chemicals in Indonesia as well as worldwide over the next decade”.

This sounds alarming!! But most of the businesses are optimistic that demand for Pulp & Paper is something related to our day to day usage irrespective of technological advancements and wants to make Indonesia to lead the pack.

Visual and packaging communication supports: the paper industry world in constant search of innovations!

Visual communication constantly proposes new products for business communication

Even if web communication has seized power, it is not the only business communication and marketing vehicle. The paper industry has always coined new words as well as innovative and creative supports for the business world. Visual communication remains one of the best marketing vectors, whatever anyone claims!

Why does the paper and packaging industry constantly propose new business communication supports?

It goes without saying that the marketing and communication industries have been significantly shaken by the encroachment of the web and its many advertising vectors. However, companies have been able to preserve traditional communication methods, and have never stopped demonstrating their effectiveness. Visual communication is still considered a sure value today in marketing techniques by all companies. Nonetheless, it must propose a number of innovations to be as rapid and efficient as web marketing solutions.

The paper industry is therefore on a continual quest to renew its range of visual communication products and to propose equally durable and effective innovations for their customers.

“Innovation is a part of our DNA and in our role as distributor, we must select the products that constitute veritable creative revelations”, states Alexis Dormoy, director of sales and marketing operations at Inapa France.

Three significant innovations in paper products and communication packaging: the world of visual marketing in constant development

Thanks to Inapa’s “Révélations créatives” the professionals of the paper industry can unveil their new products and the many innovations in the packaging, visual marketing and communication sectors. This annual trade fair proposes innovations in visual communication for marketing professionals.

During an earlier fair, three new particularly promising products were highlighted, demonstrating their numerous possibilities and manufacturing methods: the “MultiLoft” or sandwich product, as well as the “Crush” and “Remake” paper ranges.

The “Multiloft”, or sandwich product, makes it possible to manufacture packaging adapted to all the needs and creative wishes of businesses by proposing hitherto unseen structures combining product thickness and multiple colours. The assembly technique and pre-glued inserts of “Multiloft” allow a record weight and thickness, previously impossible to achieve.

The two new paper manufacturing techniques “Crush” and “Remake” proposed by Favini, are moving towards new waste recycling processes. “Crush”, a new paper range derived from agro-industrial waste products, is composed of 15% waste products, 55% virgin fibres and 30% recycled fibres. It is also manufactured using 100 % green energy. Manufactured from by-products of the Italian leather industry, the “Remake” paper range does not use chrome. It is composed of 25% by-products, 30% recycled fibres and 45% virgin fibres.

The paper books have not finished being printed !

We live in an era when it would be easy to think that data is essential in every sector. However printed books still have a bright future ahead of them, and words have not been printed for the last time. Leader of the different sectors of the publishing industry, with figures to confirm it, this support has never proved unworthy of its position.

Paper remains on top

If publishing were to go completely digital, book fairs would be without a doubt rather morose affairs, and their dedication sessions even worse. The organisers of the last Paris Book Fair can congratulate themselves however, as this was not yet the case. Printed books still account for more than the majority sold, and have even taken a step upward, covering themselves with glory with a sales increase of 2 % in 2015. On the other side of the Atlantic, where the digital market has made the biggest inroads, books have only recorded a quarter of the sales, whether it be fiction or non-fiction, and the last two years this figure is in decline. If this figure appears significant at first glance, this level is still a long way off in France. It seems that French readers have difficulty in crossing the threshold, and the sales of e-books have started to stagnate more and more every day.

A print run adapted to your tastes

If books in their printed form remain well entrenched today, it is probably because they have been able to adapt to our era. We’ve come a long way from monks copying books for months with calligraphy texts. Today, it is possible to choose your title from a publisher, whether it’s out of print or not, and have it printed in only a few minutes. That is, in any case, what “Expresso Book Machine” proposes in its Parisian shop, Presses Universitaires de France. Several million books, some of which are in the public domain, are already available, and can be printed and bound in a few minutes and then put on sale. It is quite conceivable that other publishers will follow suit and that soon we will be able to visit our favourite bookshop and order a work, and receive it immediately. This proposal of course joins the ranks of print on demand already proposed for several catalogues, especially those of Bragelonne, that publish fiction from the Snark collection in this manner, or catalogues who republish back issues and older titles. The quality remains intact, of course, just like the enjoyment.

Physical books are better than virtual ones

Through the incentives of publishers, paper books now propose unexpected prospects. It should not be forgotten that one of the printed books biggest advantages is that it can be used without an adapter. The ebook has had difficulty establishing itself in France, no doubt due to the fact that it appeared at the same time as tablets and smartphones, and not all consumers necessarily wanted, or indeed, needed to acquire multiple electronic devices. On the other hand, however, most people have eyes, and paper remains the best communication support for this tool that, moreover, can be utilised whenever desired, without complicated manipulations.
