Machine Glazed Paper Market Size Worth $17.72 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 3.9%

The global machine glazed paper market size is expected to reach USD 17.72 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Machine Glazed Paper Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Paper Type (Tissue Paper, Kraft Paper); By Grade; By Application; By Basis Weight; By End Use; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2023 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

Machine-glazed paper is an uncoated paper featuring a distinct finish, exhibiting a slightly coarse surface on one side and an exceptionally glossy appearance on the other. Its high glossiness and smooth texture, coupled with the robust characteristics of Kraft papers, make it an ideal raw material for a wide array of technical packaging, laminations, and coatings applications. It is also completely safe for direct contact with food.

The growth of the machine-glazed paper market is highly influenced by the rising utilization of this paper in the packaging industry. This is gaining importance in the packaging of food products, driven by its enormous barrier properties. The enhanced printability of single- or double-coated machine-glazed paper is widely employed in product packaging due to its superior branding and printing convenience. The growing innovations in the marketplace, with the presence of several market players, are positively driving market growth.
