In terms of revenue, the global envelope paper market is projected to register a CAGR of ~2% during the forecast period, due to several factors, about which TMR offers detailed insights and forecast in its envelope paper market report.
TMR found that the envelope paper market will be more tight in terms of value as well as volume due to reduced Uncoated Freesheet (or wood free) pulp supply. Major pulp and paper manufacturing companies such as the International Paper, Domtar, Georgia-Pacific have shut down or are planning to close their operations in the foreseeable future. These aspects lead to higher raw material prices. However, TMR suggests that increased consumption of medium and large-sized envelopes from e-Commerce and logistics industries are expected to contribute to the growth of the global envelope paper market up to certain extent. Overall, the global outlook for the envelope paper market is expected to remain neutral or somewhat positive during the forecast period of 2019-2027.
Increasing Demand for Window Envelopes to Propel Growth of Envelope Paper Market
Envelopes are used for sending letters or documents using regular postal mail services. Envelope paper is generally chosen from the following options – white paper, kraft paper, and specialty paper. The choice of envelope paper depends on application, which includes institutional usage, transformational usage, postal applications, direct mailing, pharmaceutical applications, and business letters, among others. Most of these applications require custom-made window envelopes that enable the recipient to easily access the messages sent. Some of the key features of window envelopes include well-designed display envelopes, which allows the envelope to shine in direct mail campaigns, as multiple windows on the front or back to add extra appeal, increasing visibility of inserts. These window envelopes are specifically made with uniquely shaped and strategically positioned windows, and are available in hundreds of shapes & sizes, with single or multiple windows, or in combinations of front or back to offer consumers a preview of the contents of the envelope.

Envelopes and other packaging that fits through letterboxes are considered important in e-Commerce, as these solutions are the best in terms of safe arrival and sustainability. In recent years, there has been a significant increase in goods dispatched in packaging suitable for the letterbox, and envelopes are increasingly used by sellers operating through e-Commerce.
