Pulp and Paper

The global paper industry is expected to generate $560+ billion this year.  Companies in this sector face inconsistent energy costs, increasing raw material costs, a tough regulatory environment, and weak demand for commodity paper products (other than sanitary tissue).  This constellation of circumstances is driving M&A activity in this segment- especially among containerboard/ packaging companies.

Geo Strategy Partners understands the dynamics of the pulp and paper  industry and serves clients in this sector with customized research and analysis, strategy consulting, and M&A support.
