PAPER Industry of Pakistan is not among the prime industries of the country and is in developing stage. Consumption of Paper in Pakistan is in far excess of the domestic capacity.
Over a period of time domestic industry has attained capacities and capabilities to produce all major Paper & Paper board products leaving small room for imports. However, domestic demand of some specialized papers, including coated art paper/card and newsprint, among others, is met through imports. More than 70 % of mills are located in Punjab province, 20 % are in Sindh province and 10% are in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
