Coated paper is plain paper that contains a thin layer of functional materials such as kaolin clay, SB latex, wax, polythene and titanium dioxide. Coated paper usually has a matte or gloss finish, which makes it usable in various end-use applications such as catalogues, photo papers, newspaper inserts, security papers, advertising materials and converted paper products. Coated paper is largely used in printing applications owing to its distinctive quality of producing sharp and complex images. Additionally, coated paper also has significant usage in packaging applications. Various grades of coated paper, classified in terms of glossiness and brightness, are used for packaging applications. Currently, coated paper manufacturers are focusing on bio-based and degradable flexible coated paper packaging due to increasing demand for flexible paper packaging in the food industry.

In terms of volume, Asia Pacific held over 33% share in the coated paper market in 2013. Growth in demand from the advertisement and printing industry in emerging countries such as China, Indonesia, and India has created significant demand for coated paper in this region. Moreover, growth in intra- and inter-trade commodities has led to a rise in demand for coated paper in packaging applications in the Asia Pacific region. Robust growth of online selling in India, China, Australia, South Korea, and Japan is expected to boost demand for coated paper in packaging applications in Asia Pacific. Furthermore, Asia Pacific is expected to witness fastest growth for the coated paper market in the forecast period.

North America is projected to witness slowest growth in the coated paper market in the forecast period. The U.S. is the major consumer of coated paper in this region. However, currently, due to significant rise in digital readership and viewership, the demand for coated paper has declined steadily. Furthermore, continued weakness in the demand for coated paper continues to plague all printing and writing grades. Presently, coated paper mills in this region are operating at a sluggish rate which in turn is expected to hamper the growth of coated paper in the North America region.

Europe held a substantial share in the global coated paper market until 2011; however, recent shutting of several paper mills in the Western European region has held back the demand for coated paper in Europe.
