With the commissioning of new dissolving pulp projects, the global dissolving pulp capacity had been up to about 8,000 kt by the end of 2017. It is worth noticing that the top six producers including Sappi, Aditya Birla, Lenzing, Sun Paper, Bracell and Rayonier boast the combined capacity of approximately 4,443.25 kt as a percentage of 55.5% in global total.

So far, foreign giants like Sappi, Birla and Lenzing, as well as Chinese peers such as Sun Paper, Asia Symbol and Chenming Paper, have been ramping up production of dissolving pulp aggressively, from which it can be seen that the world’s production of dissolving pulp is on the rise and will lead to overcapacity in future, and that small and medium-sized manufacturers will be forced to retreat from the market, contributing to higher concentration of the dissolving pulp industry.


As a major global consumer of dissolving pulp, the apparent consumption of dissolving pulp in China has risen steadily in recent years, and reached 4,420 kt in 2017, up 4.2% year-on-year. However, China's dissolving pulp capacity utilization rate is not high, with the actual output of 1,800 kt and the import dependence rate of 59.3%.

There are now about a dozen Chinese dissolving pulp manufacturers, among which Sun Paper, Hunan Juntai and Asia Symbol possess higher productivity reaching 500kt, 300kt and 200kt respectively, together occupying 56.7% of the total capacity.


In 2013, China initiated anti-dumping investigation against imported dissolving pulp products, because the imports flooded at low prices and took a lion’s share in the Chinese dissolving pulp market and caused serious excess of dissolving pulp capacity in China. Moreover, Chinese government also decided in August 2018 to impose 5% tariff on dissolving pulp originating in the United States. These measures favor the development of local enterprises, and it is expected that China's dissolving pulp production will rise steadily in the next few years, and its import dependence will go down.
