Pulp and Paper Automation Market Grows at Modest Rate
The Automation Expenditures in the Pulp and Paper Industry Global Market Research Study examines the market for automation and field devices, and the factors contributing to the growth and deployment of specific products and systems.
Automation products and systems include CPM, Continuous Ultrasonic Level Measurement Devices, Control Valves, DCS, Enterprise Asset Management, Flowmeters, General Motion Control, High Power AC Drives, HMI Software, Low Power AC Drives, Machine Safeguarding Solutions, PAM, Process Electrochem Systems, Process Engineering Tools, PLCs, Radar Level Devices, RPO, and Transmitters.
Recovering from the economic downswing, the pulp and paper industry got back on track and saw a little positive growth in 2011. The economic growth that had started in 2010 continued in 2011. Suppliers enjoyed a moderate spike in incoming orders in 2010 and early 2011, which translated to a growth in shipments in 2011. The recovery was experienced across all regions, although the pace of recovery slowed as the year progressed. ARC believes the automation expenditure growth in the pulp and paper industry will continue at a modest level. Emerging nations in Asia, especially China and India, will drive the major growth in the coming years.
