As the trend for media to increasingly move on-line and away from the printed page grows, we could be forgiven for assuming that the pulp & paper industry must be experiencing a significant down-turn as a result.
However, whilst it is true that demand for graphic paper has seen a decline in recent years, this has been offset by increasing demand for other pulp and paper derived products. The personal hygiene market continues to enjoy growing demand for products such as tissue paper and wipes, whilst on-line retail and e-commerce have brought significant demand growth for a wide variety of packaging materials.
Consequently, whilst the pulp and paper industry along with its production plants may be experiencing a period of transition as they adjust to changing consumer demands, the need of operational equipment to be appropriately maintained and lubricated will remain a constant.
