North America and Europe Pulpwood Market Key Takeaways

Some manufacturers intentionally use an area of trees for pulpwood, while others harvest the trees for producing wood products. For instance, salvaged trees after a natural disaster are used for harvesting pulpwood. Trees, which are suitable for harvesting timber in a mixed logging operation, are first cut. The inferior trees are harvested for use in pulpwood production. Additionally, sizable limbs and dead trees are used in the production of pulpwood for various purposes. The main purpose of harvesting pulpwood is the manufacture of paper products such as writing paper and computer and copy paper.

Market Dynamics
The North America and Europe pulpwood market is anticipated to grow due to the increasing demand for paper-based material, rising number of paper manufacturers and pulpwood plantations, growing demand for paper packaging, and rising demand for forest products. The market is facing unprecedented challenges due to increasing digitalization and rising emphasis on raw material and resource management.

Segmental Outlook

By Types
Definitions
Softwood
Softwood is thin, pure, long, and contains few impurities. Softwood trees are evergreen and their species includes Douglas fir, pine, hemlock, and cedar. Softwood is obtained from gymnosperm trees and do not have pores; however, it relies on tracheid and medullary rays to transport and produce sap and water. This characteristic of softwood gives it a low density.

Softwood Chips
Softwood chips are recovered resources from the milling of pine trees and unusable timber, which are used for commercial purposes. The chips are used as weed suppressors and water retainers. Moreover, softwood chips are used as mulch and is effective when spread to a depth of 50–100mm.

Softwood Logs
Softwood logs are obtained from pine, spruce, and fir and has long fiber cells. The viscous nature of softwood logs allows them to be seasoned and dried in short time, making them accessible at low prices. The wood logs are easier and lighter to work with, as compared to hardwood.

Hardwood
Hardwood is obtained from Acacia, Aspen, Birch, Eucalyptus, Maple, Pacific albus, and Rubber trees. Hardwood fiber is short and thick. It has a high density compared to softwood. In paper production, fibers from hardwood provide opacity.

Hardwood Chips
Hardwood chips are traditional wood chips and well-known mulch material, which are used around shrubs and flower beds. The wood chips offer a traditional look and help in temperature control and moisture retention of the soil. These chips are thicker as compared to other mulch options.

Hardwood Logs
Hardwood logs are obtained from beech, birch, and maple trees. These logs offer clean burn with maximum output of heat. Hardwood logs are generally converted into wood pulp to produce paper.

Tall Oil
Tall oil is also known as tallol or liquid rosin and is viscid, yellow-black, and odorous. It is acquired as a by-product of wood pulp of the kraft process. The composition of tall oil differs depending on the type of wood used for production. Acid number is a common quality measure for tall oil. Pure pines have acid numbers ranging between 160–165, while mills using a mix of hardwoods and softwoods give acid numbers ranging between 125–135.

Regional Outlook

Based on regions, the pulpwood market is segregated into North America and Europe. The market in North America is projected to hold a key share of the pulpwood market, owing to rising government initiatives to replace plastic with paper. The market in Europe is anticipated to expand at a significant pace during the forecast period due to increasing number of paper manufacturers and pulpwood plantations in the region. Growing demand for green packaging or eco-friendly packaging solutions and rising use of pulpwood in packaging solutions are projected to drive the demand for pulpwood in Europe.
