End-uses for fluff pulp centre on the absorbent core for hygiene products, including the large global diaper/nappies, feminine hygiene, and adult incontinence markets, as well as the faster growing nonwovens market. 

These markets for fluff pulp have an estimated demand of around 5.8 million (air dried) tonnes.  The presence of almost 2.0 million tonnes of “swing” capacity – that is, fluff pulp production capacity that can switch (or swing) to other pulp products, like dissolving pulp or papermaking grades – makes it possible for producers to carefully manage supply and demand.
