The pulp and paper industry comprises companies that use wood as raw material and produce pulp, paper, board and other cellulose-based products. Pulp is a lignocelluloses fibrous material prepared by chemically or mechanically separating cellulose fibres from wood, fibre crops or waste paper. The wood fiber sources required for pulping are, “45% sawmill residue, 21% logs and chips, and 34% recycled paper”. Pulp is one of the most abundant raw materials worldwide. The Indian Paper Industry accounts for about 2.6% of the world's production of paper. The estimated turnover of the industry is INR 50,000 crore approximately and its contribution to the exchequer is around INR 4500 crore. The industry provides employment to more than 0.5 million people directly and 1.5 million people indirectly. The mills use a variety of raw material viz. wood, bamboo, recycled fibre, bagasse, wheat straw, rice husk, etc.; approximately 31% are based on chemical pulp, 47% on recycled fibre and 22% on agro-residues. The geographical spread of the industry as well as market is mainly responsible for regional balance of production and consumption. The paper conversion sectors are assuming increasingly important place in the life of every nation. Conversion technology is being evolved continuously for having better conversion, handling, transportation, preservation and usage of materials. Paper and Pulp industry plays a vital role towards conversion. Pulping is a process of delignification removing lignin from wood while leaving cellulose fibres intact. Pulp and paper can be produced from many resources like; Eta Reed, bamboo, bagasse, elephant grass, etc.

Demand of paper has been hovering around 8% for some time. So far, the growth in paper industry has mirrored the growth in GDP. India is the fastest growing market for paper globally and it presents an exciting scenario; paper consumption is poised for a big leap forward in sync with the economic growth and is estimated to touch 13.95 million tons by 2015-16.  The operating capacity of the industry currently stands at 12.75 million tons. During 2013-14, domestic production is estimated to be 11.38 million tons. As per industry guesstimates, over all paper consumption has now touched 13.10 million tons and per capita consumption is pegged at 10 kg. Demand of paper has been hovering around 8% for some time. Indian paper consumption is 4.2 million tons. The per capita consumption is still only 4 kg, and thus the country has much potential to grow. The industry employees more than 0.3 million people directly and about 1 million people indirectly.
