  • World’s Largest Paper Producers

  • The United States and Canada are the world’s largest producers of paper and paper products . The next largest are Finland, Japan, and Sweden, who produce significant amounts of wood pulp and newsprint.
  • The U.S. consumption of paper and paperboard in 1999 was approximately 354 kilograms (about 800 pounds) per person
  • In 1997 the total world paper and paperboard production was 299,044 metric tons. It would take about 200,000 Volkswagen Beetle cars to equal this weight.
  • In the last 20 years, the combined usage of today’s top ten paper users has increased from 92 million tons to 208 million, which is a growth of 126%. So the use of computers is not slowing the amount paper we use.
