LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global specialty paper market report until 2021. This research report also lists eight other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

The increased use of specialty thermal papers in labeling is one of the key driving features of the global specialty paper market. Specialty thermal papers are used in various industries such as healthcare, laundry care, and retail. Thermal papers have specialty coating on them, which provides a sharp, clear image on the application of heat. Manufacturers are shifting toward the use of specialty thermal paper as they offer increased clarity and high-definition images, which is momentously increasing their adoption.

The high adoption of specialty papers for packing tea bags, growing demand for paper-based packaging in the food sector, and increased use of functional chemicals in specialty papers are the other key drivers of this market. Together, these factors are expected to push the global specialty paper market to record 33.55 million units by 2021, and post a CAGR of over 4%,” says Sharan Raj, one of the lead analysts at Technavio for packaging research.
