Report Id: SNS/C&M/1732 | June 2022 | Region: Global | 125 Pages

Report Scope & Overview:

Synthetic Paper Market Size was valued at USD 0.847 billion in 2022, and is expected to reach USD 1.67 billion by 2030, and grow at a CAGR of 8.9% over the forecast period 2023-2030. Petroleum-based synthetic resins are used to make synthetic paper (primary material). The characteristics of different synthetic papers are heavily influenced by the resin used. Because of its superior chemical, tear, oil, and moisture resistance, printability, heat sealability, durability, and high strength, it is chosen over ordinary paper. BOPP, HDPE, and other polymers (polystyrene, polyamide, polyethylene, and polyvinyl chloride) are commonly employed in synthetic paper, which is utilised in a variety of applications including food and beverage, cosmetics, transportation, pharmaceuticals, chemical, and advertising.

Synthetic Paper Market Revenue Graph

Synthetic paper outperforms ordinary paper in a multitude of ways due to its superior chemical and physical qualities. Furthermore, unlike conventional paper, synthetic paper can tolerate intense heat and cold. Synthetic paper is also resistant to ultraviolet (UV) light and sunshine, making it perfect for outdoor use. The packaging, printing, and labelling industries are expected to grow at a faster rate than the synthetic paper market in the long run.

Impact of Covid-19:

COVID-19 is a recently found coronavirus strain that causes an infectious sickness. This sickness is affecting economic growth all across the world. The virus was initially detected in December of this year in Wuhan, China. The global COVID-19 outbreak has wrought havoc. COVID-19 had a substantial influence on worldwide GDP in 2020, with estimates indicating that the virus harmed global economic growth by at least 0.5 percent to 1.5 percent in FY 2020-2021, however economies are rebounding with the removal of key countries' restrictions. Both lives and livelihoods are at risk as a result of the disease's rapid spread. It's a global issue that necessitates a worldwide response. It's impossible to predict how quickly this condition will go away. This condition is exceptional in that it affects both supply and demand, influencing the global supply of synthetic paper.

Various rigid plastic packaging providers are developing solutions and strategies to engage with their end consumers in order to reassure them by offering information on how they are addressing global concerns on their websites and social media.

Synthetic Paper Market Segment Pie Chart

Regional Analysis:

According to regional research, the Asia Pacific market will grow at a quick revenue CAGR and will account for the biggest revenue share in the global market over the forecast period. Increasing demand for paper, paper bags, and other paper products from end-use industries, increased environmental awareness, and recent technical advances are projected to propel market expansion in this area over the forecast period. In developing countries like China and India, growth in the chemicals, textile, cosmetics, and food and beverage industries has resulted in a significant demand for synthetic paper. The presence of significant manufacturing enterprises in the region is also driving up demand.

Furthermore, rising urbanisation in the region's developing countries increased demand for labelling, printing, and packaging, as well as increased the need for consumer goods. The availability of relatively low-cost labour and raw resources in this location is projected to boost synthetic paper production. Consumption in this region is predicted to rise as a result of innovation in the paper and packaging industry, rising industrialisation, and increased knowledge of the benefits of synthetic paper.

14 Conclusion


An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
